Did anyone get a letter through from the local Conservative MPs on this last week?
After all of the fuss above, the developers have put in plans for the walkway to be REMOVED AND for the portacabins to be extended so they can be used as marketing suites.
I am gobsmacked. I think it’s totally unacceptable to remove the walkway after the rather stupid idea to close off the pavement in the first place, putting so many children / elderly / vulnerable people at risk, having to cross a busy dangerous road twice, just to walk in one of the busiest areas locally.
I don’t know where the blame lies but my guess is with Wandsworth Council for allowing this development to proceed on these terms and putting local residents at risk in this way, and then managing it in such an incompetent manner. Coupled with a developer who seems to have no interest in the wellbeing and safety of local residents. The Conservatives claim a chunk of the glory for getting the walkway sorted out and have their own agenda but I at least welcome them letting me know of these latest developments.
There is a link on the letter to object to the plans so please can you sign and forward this on to others too:
