Merton Green Party members Pippa Maslin, Chris Stanton, Tom Killick and Jamie Rae have been working with other local residents to oppose a planning application to hold Eastern Electrics festivals in Morden Park. The Wimbledon Times has been covering the story.
Numerous residents submitted objections prior to the Licensing Sub-Committee hearing on 30th January. Further objections were then submitted when a revised application was presented to the interested parties a mere six days before the hearing.
The Licensing Sub-Committee hearing lasted over five hours (!) and Merton TV was kind enough to film it.
Pippa (our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Mitcham and Morden, and 2020 London Assembly candidate for Merton and Wandworth) will report in more detail when the outcome is announced. Merton Council informs us that we will hear by 8th February at the latest. Let us hope that, as was the case with the Diynamic application, the Council sees fit to reject the Eastern Electrics application.
