Our meeting tonight starts at 7 pm in the meeting hall on Ravensbury Grove. See you there.
Our next meeting is this Wednesday evening in the meeting hall. We’ll start at 7pm.
The Merton Council planning committee waved the Ravensbury Garages plans through recently. Councillors that thought the plans suitable (supported the application) included: John Bowcott (Conservative), Najeeb Latif (Cons), Andrew Judge (Labour) , Linda Kirby (Lab), Peter Southgate (Merton Park Independent Residents), Imran Uddin (Lab), Geraldine Stanford (Lab), Joan Henry (Lab).
This article describes a similar consultation to that experienced in Circle’s & Merton’s quest for regen. Definitely worth a read:

We thought it important to let residents & other interested bodies know that now that Merton’s planning committee have passed the Ravensbury Garages application, there is only 6 weeks to submit the case to court for a judicial review.
We believe that the legal costs (plus VAT) required to begin the legal challenge are initially around £3-6k.
The total costs to get to High Court are expected to be around £10-15k.
If the case goes further, there will be further costs, obviously.
If the case is lost, then costs would also need to be paid to the other party.
Submitting within the 6 weeks after a decision has been made (ie now) is also considered to be an 11th hour application.
Interested parties who would like to contribute towards a judicial review, should contact us on: Ravensbury.Grove@gmail.com
