Protect Clapham Common
Well done, well written, I completely agree. I had also heard that all the objections were ignored. I have shared your piece and website address, though I fear many people are saying, ‘I have objected already’ and feel as though it is pointless to do so again. But onwards and upwards.
This time Lambeth Council has no control over the grant of permission. It will be decided by an independent person, the Secretary of State for the Environment. He has to decide based on the laws protecting Common land, rather than based on local planning policy. It’s now or never to object. Once the Sec of State grants permission for events on the Common he is more likely to grant permission every time that Lambeth has to apply for permission. Act now! Or forever hold your peace.
