SP0793 : Burford Road Playing Fields

taken 1 month ago, near to Kingstanding, Birmingham, Great Britain

Burford Road Playing Fields
Burford Road Playing Fields
This 12.6 acre open space used to be playing fields but is now just grass. Access for local people is not easy as the main vehicle entrance (seen in this view) off Kingstanding Road is locked and the entire boundary is completely fenced, apart from one small pedestrian access gap. Three disused lighting columns are the only structures on the field; there is one tiny tree too. In autumn 2019, the city council is aiming to dispose of the land for development under Section 77 of the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998. Public consultation is underway.
