The Friends of Cheam Park held their Annual General Meeting this evening at the Prince of Wales public house (thank you PoW for your hospitality). A well-attended meeting heard more about the proposed development of the stable block that was allowed to fall into a sad state of repair by the Council, contrary to the terms that were made when the facility was bequethed to the local authority.
After election of officers and committee members – details to follow – the main focus of discussion was the proposed development of this site within the Park. Suffice to say there was an over-whelming majority who were opposed to the development. More details will be available in the minutes of that meeting.
Readers are reminded that the Planning Application comes before the Planning Committee on Wednesday 21st October at 7.30pm.
Those attending the meeting also heard about all the things that were being done in the Park. This writer for one looks forward to hearing when the Parks Department, and thus the Council, will actually discuss these projects with the Committee, rather than it hearing about these initiatives second hand!
