ROYAL MARSDEN LAUNCH ON LINE PETITION


The Dame is often accused of being partisan and only supporting the Royal Marsden....NOT TRUE!
The Royal Brompton are just too grand to talk to the old Dame: presumably, because they have powerful 'friends at court'.
The Dame would always be even handed....given the chance.


Anyway, a resident association bigwig sent her details of the newly launched on line petition run by RBK&C.


Dear Dame

The Royal Marsden have just launched a petition on the council website and it would be great if you could firstly sign it but also circulate it to other residents and all your faithful readers. Further details are below but due to the tight timeframe any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Council have agreed to extend the consultation period of the Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Royal Brompton’s redevelopment plans until the 30 April, however, they are still only providing residential development as an option for the Fulham Road Wing. As we have previously stated this would lead to even more luxury housing in the area and will have widespread implications for the borough’s local health care amenities. This is because The Royal Marsden needs this building due to it already being at capacity and turning patients away. Therefore, in order to protect Europe’s leading cancer centre in Chelsea, The Royal Marsden is looking to continue with our campaign to reject the SPD in its current form in order to allow a pause so a solution can be found which will ensure both The Royal Marsden and the Royal Brompton’s future in the borough.

WE WOULD THEREFORE DEEPLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD SIGN THE PETITION AND CIRCULATE IT AMONGST FRENDS AND MEMBERS

The petition is called ‘Petition to reject the Royal Brompton SPD’ and asks the next Full Council meeting and the Public Realm Scrutiny Committee to discuss the SPD before any decision on the draft has been taken and for them to call for it to be withdrawn so a solution can be found.

In order for this petition to meet the council’s requirements to allow for a meeting of the Full Council on the topic we need 1500 signatures by 1 May. 
Therefore it would be great if you could help us by signing the petition and encourage friends and other residents to do the same. 
If you have a website we would also be extremely grateful if you could share it on there.

The petition can be found on the council’s website here and is called ‘Petition to reject the Royal Brompton SPD’

There will also be a paper petition in the main entrance of The Royal Marsden.

  5. Signed the petition! Tell K&C we seek a cure for cancer, not the cancerous spread of unaffordable designer flats in a borough that is now nothing more than a cash cow for greedy speculators

  6. 10:26, 10:42 &11:32 are comments from the most odd Cllr Palmer. I see the Dame has put up a picture of Cllr Palmer playing Candy Crush on his council Iphone.
    His colleagues are delighted that this new toy keeps him occupied and distracts from the interfering with the serious business of Council.

  7. And I made the first comment. While I'm flattered to be mistaken for the excellent Mr Downes, he is not me. BTW I received an instant acknowledgement from RBKC of my signature on the petition. So everyone please find a moment to sign up - for our neighbours and ourselves.
