Lister is the Leader of Wandsworth
Council and a member for Putney's
Monday's public meeting at All Saints Church on Putney Common
(October 28) will be a great opportunity for local people
to find out just how a third Heathrow runway could affect
of the big difficulties in getting to the bottom of the Department
for Transport's proposals is the sheer weight of technical
data accompanying the basic consultation document.
example nowhere in the papers we've researched does it spell
out just where the new flightpaths will run. This is almost
certainly because all the current flightpaths will be have
to be rethought - but it would have been more honest if the
Government had come out and said this openly.
also clear that there is the potential for a huge increase
in capacity at Gatwick - one new runway here and one at Stansted
would make further expansion at Heathrow unnecessary. So why
does the consultation not spell this out?
only got until November 30 to respond to the Government so
Monday's public meeting will be vital in helping to gauge
the reaction of those residents likely to be most affected
by increased aircraft noise.
Later in the week (Friday) an equally fiery event will take
place on the other side of Putney at Wandsworth Park. This
of course is the council's free firework display which was
such a success at this new venue last year.
the fire service unions timing their strike to coincide with
the fireworks season there's no safer place to enjoy the festivities
than at a properly organised display.
bonfire will be lit at 7.30pm - see you there!
a new 'planning alert' service will I am sure be welcomed
by Putney residents eager to keep track of proposed building
changes in their area.
online messaging system on the council's website means you
can now be tipped off the minute a new planning application
will also be sent a web link taking you to the relevant pages
of the council's planning register where you can inspect the
scheme and add your comments.
sign up for the service go to www.wandsworth.gov.uk/planning
and follow the registration instructions.
know just how keenly local people monitor new development
in Putney - this is a fast and simple way to keep in touch
with everything that's going on around you!
