>> Your chance to contribute: tell us what your think on Clapham Junction station redevelopment
Author: Cyril Richert
You might have noticed that we are a little bit interested by planning question in the borough of Wandsworth, here at the Clapham Junction Action Group. And as it happened that planning decision, approval or refusal, are taken by the planning application committee, it is legitimate to know the members (especially as a lot of changes occurred from last time):

Councillor Nick Cuff
(Chairman)

Councillor Mrs. Vanessa Graham
(Deputy Chairman)

Councillor Tony Belton
(Opposition Speaker)

Councillor John Hallmark


Councillor Mrs. Caroline Usher


Councillor Mrs. Angela Graham


Councillor Guy Humphries


Councillor Matthew Maxwell Scott


Councillor Steffi Sutters


Councillor Dr. Billi Randall

Date: Usually penultimate Thursday of each month, 7.30pm (next meetings: 24th June, 22nd July, 19th August)
Venue: Wandsworth Borough Council, The Town Hall, Wandsworth High Street, London SW18 2PU (more details how to get there on the website).
The biggest change: everyone has got new photos!  There are 10 members instead of 11 previously. Vanessa Graham, Tony Belton, John Hallmark, Caroline Usher, Billi Randall are still there but half of the members are new, including the chairman: Nick Cuff (maybe the youngest serving elected member; former chair of the Regeneration & Community Safety Overview and Scrutiny Committee. He has notably written on issues such as town-planning reform), Angela Graham, Guy Humphries, Matthew Maxwell Scott, Steffi Sutters (former chair of the Putney Society who approved our joint statement on planning policy for tall buildings in the London Borough of Wandsworth).
Interesting to notice that Guy Humphries is also a member of the Strategic Planning and Transportation Overview and Scrutiny Committee that will concern us for issues for Clapham Junction station.

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.
