However, as a member of the Council recently pointed, a crucial point of the action is the number of comments/objection received. With Putney’s project getting more than 500 presentations, it played an important role in the Planning Committee decision to reject the planning proposal ; here for Clapham Junction we have still some way to go to beat that record. I urge people who haven’t sent their views to the Council to do so. And alway remember that each single voice count, so it is important that people write personally instead of sending a group objection.
