Nicholas Rogers AM: Give residents more time to have their say on Mortlake Brewery plan
Today the London Assembly backed an urgent motion from Nicholas Rogers calling for residents to be given more time to consider the proposals to redevelop the Mortlake Brewery site.
Nicholas Rogers, Conservative London Assembly Member for South West, commented: "Residents need to be given time to have their say on plans to redevelop the Mortlake Brewery site. The current proposals would nearly double the local population and change the ancient Thames riverscape forever. With far-reaching and long-lasting effects like these, it's essential residents' views are heard.
"Nobody understands a local community and its potential more than the residents themselves. By listening to residents and taking on board their ideas and concerns, we can build something truly remarkable at Mortlake. However, there isn't time to have those meaningful discussions between now and the end of July. That's why I'm pleased the London Assembly has backed my call for the Mayor to delay the public hearing to allow residents to have their say."
