A letter from the Neighbours of Springfield – Please act
Springfield have started their appeal process – we only have until September 1st to act
This newsletter is to inform you that Springfield have officially lodged their appeal over the planning application refusal on the hospital grounds, and we only have 3 weeks to submit any new objections.
It has taken the hospital 7 months to make this decision and in this time there has been no effort to communicate with us about how we could work together to find a solution that finds support with the local community. As Sadiq Khan has said in his letter to the local community, “Springfield is hoping to bypass this by appealing to the Secretary of State. This does not seem like a positive step forward for relations between the local community and the hospital” – and we would agree!
What happens now?
• You can read and comment on the application here.
• You can also write to The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/20 Wing Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN – please ensure you quote the case reference (APP/H5960/A/11/2156427) in your correspondence.
• Please note all comments submitted to Wandsworth Council as part of the original planning application will be considered as part of the appeal.
• Here is the link to the orignal planning documents on Wandsworth BC website – Click here
