The LBRuT Planning Committee will meet to consider the three applications for the Mortlake Brewery site on Wednesday 29 January at 7pm at Clarendon Hall. The officers from the Planning Department have recommended that the Council approves the applications.
A local residents’ group, the Mortlake Brewery Community Group is asking residents to consider some questions regarding the development, such as:
- Do you want 900 new housing units on the site – exceeding the GLA guidelines for density? Are you happy with only 17% being affordable?
- Will the transport and health infrastructure of Mortlake cope with the pressure of a 40% increase in its population?
- Is the plan for 800+ parking spaces sustainable? Are you aware that air pollution generated by traffic will be above legal limits?
- Should mature trees be felled for the road widening at Chalker’s Corner, exposing residents of Chertsey Court to unlawful levels of air pollution and noise?
- Are you prepared to lose the green playing fields to large new buildings and an enclosed, floodlit, all-weather pitch?
- Is a 1200 pupil secondary school needed in Mortlake?
- Will Mortlake Station and the level crossing cope with the extra volume of users?
The meeting on Wednesday is open to everyone but has a limited number of seats – register if you’d like to speak, or contact your councillors with your concerns.
