Are you aware that developers have recently applied to Wandsworth council to build 28 residential properties on the old Balham bowling green? The entrance and only access to this is from Chestnut Grove, opposite the school where the TK Maxx entrance is (a few meters up from Old Dairy Mews.)

I have numerous objections to this; mainly that an extremely rare green sporting space be changed to residential use and lost forever to future generations. However if I stick to the topic of road safety on Chestnut Grove;
+ the access point to this development is on the busiest stretch of Chestnut Grove, at rush hour times cars line up from the High Road back to the second roundabout. This development will add to the heavy congestion.
+ access will add another risk to safety of the high footfall traffic in this area, with resident cars continually accessing at this highly congested point.
Should you wish to object to this development you can do so via the link above.
