Save Holland Park School Playing Field!

In May 2006 I conducted a “Ëśrapporteurship’ into the selling off of public and school playing fields on behalf of the London Assembly Environment Committee, of which I am the Deputy Chair. My report into the issue can be found at http://www.london.gov.uk/assembly/reports/environment/playing-fields.pdf ), Since then I have been contacted by a number of local groups and individuals about the selling off of playing fields and the instance at Holland Park School has cropped up a number of timesThe great effect of the loss of small areas of open space in densely populated areas is not always appreciated. I wholly endorse Tony Benn and the Campden Hill residents in their effort to halt development on this land and am prepared to make representations to the new Mayor with a view to his using his new planning powers to intervene in the application if deemed necessary.
