PLAZA – COUNCIL REFUSES PLANNING APPLICATION

Plaza Planning Application Refused writes Rob Richman [Southfields Plaza Group]

Dear Supporter

On 18th April 2012 Wandsworth Council Planning Committee followed their officers’ advice and refused the outline planning application for 227 – 231 Wimbledon Park Road SW18.

The committee further encouraged the applicant to re-think their plans and conduct a more exhaustive and inclusive pre-application with council officers and local residents.

I’m sure the owners will need a little time to reflect on this decision but I’m cautiously optimistic that they will now see the imperative to engage with us and the wider community in Southfields to bring forward a far better and more popular scheme.

We at the Southfields Plaza Group will continue with our efforts to engage positively with the owners and their agents. As soon as I have more news I will be in touch.

Once again I would like to thank everyone that has supported the campaign and I feel privileged to be part of a community that cares so passionately about its future. Without your support this would not have been possible.

Best wishes
