Small self-interested cabals, lack of engagement with residents and now a case of the Leadership delegating an important key decision, a decision with significant impact on residents' lives, health and wellbeing, to officers at the last minute: this is shameful. Local residents and community groups have been denied the opportunity to exercise their right to present their views at a scheduled Public Meeting. This promised meeting evaporated without notice and the decision was made behind closed doors.
This does not inspire confidence that Hammersmith and Fulham is in a safe set of hands. Shuffling meetings where opinions are going to be voiced and excluding residents’ views is not democratic and not what people voted for. Democracy and Londoners are the ultimate losers.
This shabby and insulting indifference to local residents will not deter the Earl’s Court Area Action Group in its fight to Save Earl’s Court, the West Kensington and Gibbs Green Estates and the Lillie Bridge Depot.
