LETTER: School playing fields being sold off

in response to Coun. Mark Townsend’s letter in the Express, perhaps he should refer to the classified section of the Burnley Express dated June 3rd, 2011.

There are two public notices applying for consent to dispose of school playing fields at the former Hameldon College, Byron Street and the former Blessed Trinity High School, Kiddrow Lane.

Perhaps he could explain what will become of these fields once the county council has disposed of them. Perhaps they could be let for sheep grazing. There are plenty of them in the town hall.
