|Putney Labour Raises Questions On Common Development Plan|
In an open letter to Councillor Tracey
Letters have been sent to Councillor Kathy Tracey, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services, as well as Thamesfield’s Conservative representatives, Councillors Ryder, Madden and Torrington.
The letter reads:
Dear Councillor Kathy Tracey,
I am writing as Chair of Putney Labour Party regarding the council’s planned development of the Putney Hospital site.
Putney Labour Party welcomes the site being put to use in some way, as it has remained derelict for far too long. We also recognise there is an increased demand for primary school places in Wandsworth as a whole.
However, there were significant objections raised by local residents during the consultation on the site development plan in its current form. I am writing to ask what adjustments to the plans will be made in light of these concerns. In particular;
1. Traffic flow in the area. What assessments of the environmental impact of the development have been made? How will you make a realistic prediction of car use?
