Come along to Kingston Council's working group public meeting on Friday 11th March 2022.
If you are interested in what can be done to protect the wildlife and biodiversity at this precious site, come along to Kingston Council's working group meeting to discuss options.
The working group was set up by Council in response to a petition (https://www.kingstonlibdems.org/kingston_council_agrees_a_way_forward).
The public meeting will be on Friday 11th March 2022 at 2pm at the Guildhall in Kingston — an online option will be available for those unable to attend in person. The working group, of up to 6 councillors, will hear evidence from any interested residents, local experts, other parties and council officers on the various options that could be reasonably pursued.
“With this site being in private ownership, it is difficult for the Council to force them to look after the nature that has grown on the site,” says local resident and St Mark's Ward Councillor Diane White.
“We want a full and open discussion on possibilities. The working group will then make recommendations back to a formal council committee for action,” adds Councillor Yogan Yoganathan.
“As well as in person and online, the meeting will be live webcast for anyone wanting to watch but not participate,” says Councillor Liz Green. "More details will be available from the Council soon. Please email me — [email protected] — if you want these sent to you.”
