The new MP for Battersea is now Jane Ellison. As I said recently, Martin Linton (former Battersea MP) showed a great support in the last 18 months on issues such as the twin towers for Clapham Junction station and the 16-storey building proposal for Falcon road, on tall building policy but also on helping to organise meeting with the rail authorities and relaying our views to the Transport secretary.
I congratulate Jane Ellison for her victory and we are all looking forward to carry on the work and pressure we have been doing to see a real improvement for Clapham Junction station. She has already showed some support and organised a meeting with Theresa Villiers MP, the Shadow Secretary of State for Transport, who visited Clapham Junction Station 2 weeks ago. It was reassuring to hear that Theresa shared our concern as to Network Rail’s lack of accountability, and would plan to make them answerable to both commuters and parliament under a future Conservative administration. The next few days will probably show more outcome for the future government, but our hopes are high for Clapham Junction!
Regarding the Planning Committee, few should change from the former members HERE. However we might look with great interest whether Steffi Sutters (newly elected as a Conservatives councillor for West Putney) will join them as she shared our views for a Tall Building Policy last year, as a member of the Putney Society.
Last but not least, don’t forget to tell us what your think on Clapham Junction station redevelopment and send us your contribution.

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly called CJAG website) has been publishing local news for more than 14 years and remains committed to providing local community information and public interest journalism.
We aim to feature as much as possible on community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents and helping residents.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
Until recently, all stories, analysis and reports published have been made with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it cost time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but we need financial resources to help us providing regular information.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
