Objection to the London Mayor's Plan

The London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has published his draft London Plan which proposes to deliver thousands of new houses. That ambition is great, we all know that more affordable housing is needed in London, but the way he wants to do it is not, as he expects outer London boroughs like Sutton to deliver most of this housing. This could mean turning suburbs into intensively developed estates. As we mentioned in our February Newsletter we wish to object to this encourage you to do so also, the steps to take are outlined in this document.

The Chairman's report for 2017 and minutes of the last meeting are in our document archive with full details.

OGRES is made up of local residents who give up their time to try and keep the area interesting and special. The Association has a good relationship with the council and has representatives on the local Wallington Forum and the Wallington Beddington Area Forum. Members of the committee are also active in the local Neighbourhood Watch Association and the Policy Consultancy Group.

The area is designated an ‘Area of Special Local Character’ by the council, a distinction that OGRES is keen to maintain. These are older parts of the Borough which have a special local character, in terms of their townscape, architectural and landscape features, and which the Council considers should be conserved or improved.

We need interested people, willing to support the committee by becoming members of the committee, or road reps. The time commitment is not huge, but does include about six meetings per year. If you would like to join the committee please contact us here.

Browse our website for more information about OGRES. If you have any questions or would like to speak to an OGRES representative regarding the activities of the Association then please contact us.

At OGRES, we wish to preserve the local character of the area and maintain and improve the area in which we live.

Our local MP Tom Brake has some great information on his website at www.tombrake.co.uk among other items you can sign petitions to "Save our Back Gardens" "Save our Magistrates Court" and "To ensure we keep a critical care hospital at St Helier"
