Join us: Tuesday 15th December - Lambeth Planning Applications Committee meeting
The Garden Bridge ‘Trust’ needs to discharge several planning conditions before construction can begin and we intend to persuade Lambeth Council that this private development is unwanted, unnecessary and a waste of public money.
Please come and support us at the Karibu Education Centre, 7 Gresham Road, Brixton, London SW9 7PH. The meeting starts at 7pm but arrive early so that we can be seen and heard.
Don’t forget to keep spreading the word about the petition and write to Lambeth’s leader Lib Peck email@example.com with your concerns e.g. the overcrowding, destruction of treasured views, burden to the public purse, undemocratic and corrupt way the whole project has come about - or all of the above.
Lib Peck could’ve stopped the project dead but she allowed the Garden Bridge Trust’s group of multi-millionaire chums to proceed with squandering public funds in the guise of a sham 'loan’. Details can be found on our website: www.tcos.org.uk.
Coin Street Community Builders could similarly stop the project by simply refusing to allow a variation of their lease of the South Bank land that is need by the Garden Bridge Trust to develop upon. They say they won’t stand in the way of the development but this goes against the terms of their lease and what the land was intended for in the first place. The future of our open space rests in their hands just as much as Lambeth’s. Write and tell the Chief Executive Iain Tuckett firstname.lastname@example.org not to allow this to happen and to preserve our open space for use by the public 24/7, 365 days a year in perpetuity as per their lease.
Contact future decision makers for London: Sadiq Khan email@example.com and Zac Goldsmith firstname.lastname@example.org and write to your MP to tell them what a disgrace it is for public funding to be ploughed into this private vanity project when central government cuts are being made everywhere else.
And please continue to support our fundraising for if/when we challenge them in the High Court: www.everyclick.com/tcos
