One of the largest open spaces in our part of South West London is under threat.
The AELTC’s planning application, to develop the golf course, continues. A year on, they have added 60 new documents, but the core principles are unchanged.
On Capability Brown’s Grade II* historic Metropolitan Open Land they still plan an 8,000-seat stadium, 38 courts, 10 other buildings and 9kms of roads and paths. The new AELTC park would still be “permissive” rather than “public” and still contains a 30,000sqft maintenance building. All this would still break the 1993 covenants demanded by Merton to protect the golf course and agreed by AELTC on their purchase.
