During the winter, Tooting Liberal Democrats worked with local residents to campaign against a proposed development which would undermine Wandsworth Common. The proposals would have demolished low rise units housing many popular local businesses on Jaggard Way, and replaced them with 4 and 6 storey blocks of flats.
Partly as a result of our campaign, on 25th January 2018, the planning application was refused, although Conservative Councillor Sarah McDermott stated at the planning meeting that future development was likely.
An exhibition was recently held near Wandsworth Common station by developers, outlining revised proposals. Click the link below to see a document summarising the proposal.

The Liberal Democrats remain passionately committed to conserving our Wandsworth Common and Jaggard Way local businesses, and will keep you informed of developments.
