Love the fact that there were about 33 people in favour (roughly 1 primary school class how funny) and 400+ against and it went through nice to see democracy in action!
Wandsworth councils non-response to the objections re creating places for children BTC totally fails to deal with the reason behind all the objections, 30 more school places is 30 more school places if children from area A suddenly all apply to a school to the North clearly it will create less competition for places in the school to the South for children from area B C and D!
There is an equally large if not larger demand for school places in Balham but I don't see Wandsworth council ring fencing places in the chi chi schools for them still bung another couple of hundred thousand on your house asking price and you might just get there
What's needed now is for those who object to write to the MP (I bet they will get short shrift) DOE same however there is an authority changes to admission arrangements have to go through surely an objection there has to follow.
Also all those living nr Forthbridge Road as their children hit school age should apply and mount an appeal when they fail to get a place one ground is the duty on LA to minimise driving to school or some such I'm sure there will be more.
They wont win the LA is judge jury and executioner but the council hates appeals it's expensive and time consuming.....
However the thing that remains to be explained is quite why people feel the council needs to buy votes BTC?
