Springfield Hospital lodge development appeal
Tuesday, 26 July 2011 16:53
Springfield Hospital has formally lodged its appeal against Wandsworth Council's decision to refuse planning permission for a major re-development of the hospital site.
In December 2010 Springfield Hospital had applied to build a development of 850 housing units on the site. This was rejected by Wandsworth Council following over 4000 objections from local residents.
Sadiq has written to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, asking that this appeal be considered via a full public inquiry, and that he personally make the decision on whether or not to grant planning approval.
- You can comment on the application online by visitingwww.planningportal.gov.uk and searching the appeals database using the case reference (APP/H5960/A/11/2156427).
