Protect Clapham Common: Winterville bid for planning for events in 2018, 2019 and 2020
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Lambeth are currently considering an application from Winterville to host their 5 week event on the Common for the next 3 years. The ground has still not recovered from their event ending 3 January 2018 and in fact has not yet been released back to the general population 5 months after the event began.
Lambeth Council have also put in a blanket planning application to allow them to use Clapham Common for 110 days of events throughout 2018.
There is a huge concern among local residents that the Common is being treated by Lambeth as their own commercial resource whilst showing little or no regard for the health or the spirit of the Common.
We are happy to see the Common used for events as it has done in previous years but only where it is for the good of the Common and it's local residents. Applications that cause increased noise and light pollution, damage the ground or are out of character with the local area should not be granted approval. Each event should be treated independently and granted or refused permission based on a set of agreed specific parameters.
