MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT TONY COLMAN
to an old story to kick off this week - our newly closed Garden
ahead with the most unpopular decision in Putney, the Council
are set to approve planning permission for the site next week
- Tuesday the 15th October. The objections are listed in the
planning committee agenda, and the local concern over the
sale of the site, and the Council's mishandling of the whole
affair, is clear, but I fear this is not a battle where reason
Whilst on planning issues, it is still not too late to object
to the Royal Parks about the closure of Robin Hood Gate and
Pen Ponds car park. I am fully aware of, and very sympathetic
to, the environmental arguments for the closure, but moving
the traffic 300 yards away into a residential area is just
not a viable solution. Please voice your concerns to William
Weston, Chief Executive of the Royal Parks before 25th October.
I have had a very busy week following the announcement that
John Langan was resigning as Chief Executive of Kingston Hospital.
Working closely with neighbouring MPs Jenny Tonge and Ed Davey,
I have met the appointments Commissioner for London, the Health
Authority Chair and have a meeting coming early next week
with the non-executive Directors.
Ed and I are very concerned about governance issues, and the
processes gone through in filling positions, such as Chief
Executives of local Hospitals. We are concerned at the lack
of consultation, even with local elected representatives -
more on this in the near future.
lastly - a bit of good news - Sure Start is coming to Roehampton.
The scheme provides opportunities for pre-school children
and their parents, and has been a great success elsewhere
in the country, including Battersea. I am very pleased that
our sustained pressure on Ministers has paid off.
