Following the consultation on the Proposed Submission versions of the DMPD (Development Management Policies Document) and SSAD (Site Specific Allocation Document), which provide detailed policies to support the delivery of the Core Strategy [1], the final documents were submitted to the Secretary of States on May 27th. An independent inspector is currently conducting hearings regarding the documents.
Agenda for Hearing Session
Hearing Session 6 – 11 October 2011 – Afternoon
This Session opens at 14:15 and it is anticipated it will be completed by about 17:00.
The venue for the hearing sessions will be Room 123, Wandsworth Town Hall, Wandsworth High Street, London, SW18 2PU
Clapham Junction

  1. Given that prospects for redevelopment of the adjacent land are uncertain, does the inclusion of reference to the re-alignment of Falcon Lane (proposal 4.1.1) introduce an unwarranted element of uncertainty?
  2. Should the land at Sendall Court (proposal 4.1.2) be allocated for open space rather than residential or mixed use?
  3. Are the proposals for improvements to the Clapham Junction Station Approach (proposal 4.1.3) sufficiently definitive and positive?
  4. Is the incorporation of part of the Peabody Estate land (proposal 4.1.6) into the town centre justified by the evidence?

The Clapham Junction Action Group (CJAG) has been invited to attend the hearing session along with the Battersea Society. You will notice that the list of topics covers all main concerns raised by CJAG, including our criticism after the response to the consultation HERE.

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.
