Departure of SAGA from Enbrook Park

Dear Sandgate Society Members

You will mostly be aware of the recent disturbing news – the departure of Saga from Enbrook Park, Sandgate.

We received an email response from the CEO of Saga which is not entirely satisfactory from our point of view.

One of the main concerns at the present moment is the future of our Sandgate Community Garden; we are keeping Leonie completely in the loop, and so far we believe we have a “stay of execution”.  The points of consideration are not only the decision to be made by future buyers, which may take some time, but also the effective enforced closure if Saga no longer need water for their own grounds and remove our access to this essential commodity.

I am working closely with Cllr Tim Prater and also Cllr Guy Valentine-Neale (Head of Planning, SPC) and have requested a face to face meeting with Euan Sutherland which is planned for the next 2-3 weeks.   We have all brought up many salient points and will come back with answers shortly thereafter.

Please be assured that everyone is fully committed to ensuring the least possible “damage” to Sandgate – visually, architecturally – not to mention continued access for our community.

We will come back with more in-depth information following our meeting.

Thank you,

Sal Kenward
