At a Sutton Council planning committee in December, the controversial decision was made to grant planning permission for land to the rear of 1-8 Harcourt Avenue and 32 Manor Way, Wallington for unpopular development of the site against a vast majority of residents' wishes.
This has been described as a sad day for local politics and a betrayal of local residents. Wallington North (the council ward) is already above SW London and London as a whole for averages of population density.
The authors of this petition, Ken Andrew, (Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Carshalton & Wallington), Councillor Eric Howell, Neil Garratt and Jason Hughes (Conservative council candidates for Wallington North) believe that planning affecting local areas and communities must be a bottom up process taking into account and reflecting residents' views.
We, the undersigned, petition the London Borough of Sutton not to sell council-owned land at the rear of Harcourt Avenue to developers in order to prevent unpopular overdevelopment in the local area.
The Save Harcourt Avenue from overdevelopment petition to London Borough of Sutton was written by Jason Hughes and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
