Development Control Committee - Monday 3 December

The Development Control Committee (DCC) meets to discuss the planning application for Phase 5 on 3 December 2007. The meeting will be held in the Europa Gallery at the Sutton Civic Centre from 7.30pm.

The Residents Association has met with councillors and other local groups and will make a statement to the DCC on 3 December. This will be part of a co-ordinated approach to show DCC members that the entire Worcester Park community is united in its concerns over the impact on local services and amenities is there is further development of the Hamptons. We will focus on the impact that further development will have on the lives of Hamptons' Residents (including wind turbines); other groups will pick up issues such as transport, air quality, pressure on local parking etc to ensure the most effective use of our limited time in front of the DCC (just 6 minutes)

A few people have asked us how they can help on the day and whether they should make a contribution. The simplest way is simply to turn up on the night and show your support for the RA's position and your concern at St James's plans. If you want to do more then please register your intention to speak with the DCC manager by the end of the week.

I guess we ought to consider car pooling if there's a few of us going.....email hamptonsresidents@googlemail.com and we can try and co-ordinate!
