All during the last 3 months of this year you have been sending some 400 comments to the Council, with about 90% expressing your objection to the planning proposal including the two 142m high tower blocks beside Clapham Junction station.
On behalf of the Clapham Junction Action Group I thank you for your help, raising your concern.
Your views were also published in the press, as some examples below (click on the articles to enlarge):

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.
You will find all the addresses and who to contact and write to on our page.

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly known as the CJAG website) has been publishing local news for over 14 years and remains committed to providing information about the local community and engaging in public interest journalism.

Our goal is to feature a wide range of community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, and provide assistance to residents.

We have always been dedicated to these endeavours and have no intention of changing. In fact, we would like to expand our efforts further.

Until recently, all the stories, analyses, and reports published have been made possible with the invaluable help of many volunteers. However, it requires a significant amount of time and effort, and we are frustrated that we cannot do more. There are numerous topics we would like to cover, but we require financial resources to provide regular information.

Therefore, we kindly ask our readers to consider offering financial support to sustain these efforts. Any contributions made will help support community and public interest news, as well as the expansion of our coverage in this area.

2 ways of supporting our project

  2. Patreon: this is a well-known membership platform that connects content creators with supporters.
