Object to loss of Greenwich MOL Bowring Fields

 

 

Please OBJECT to development on Metropolitan Open Land in Greenwich 

Please help! It will only take a minute. Write to cpickering@quatro-pr.co.uk as below (or in your own words) – giving your name and address. Anyone can object but local campaigners would particularly encourage people who live in Lewisham, Bromley, Greenwich and Bexley to send their objections.

This is a PR company ‘consulting’ on behalf of a school, to prepare a statement of community involvement. But local campaigners are very concerned that voices of dissent will not be heard, despite the site being a flood plain and school places not being needed,  and that fact that the site was bought by the UK Government without planning permission – thereby prejudicing the planning system. CPRE London has made strong objections and will continue to do so.

Many thanks for your help.

Dear Sirs,

Re: International. Academy of Greenwich Proposed Major Development on Bowring Metropolitan Open Land

I oppose the proposed development because:

  • It is Metropolitan Open Land which provides Londoners with both recreational and ecological services in particular in this case for sports and flood management. As MOL and as part of a green chain, it is of strategic importance for all of London.
  • There are no special circumstances and the need for school places must be seen in the context of provision elsewhere: there are enough school places being offered by schools in the borough and (nearby) schools in neighbouring boroughs to meet need.

I request that you include my objection in your Statement of Community Involvement.

Please acknowledge receipt of my objection.

Yours sincerely
