Public Meeting - Rainbow Estate

Consultation on Draft Planning Brief for Rainbow Estate

The well-publicised Public Meeting was held on 10 July 2012 to consider the Draft Planning Brief. At this meeting; 
  • The Council Planning Officers made a presentation,
  • A question and answer session took place,
  • Residents’ spoke from the floor, expressing a range of views. 
At the conclusion, Rod Scott, Councillor, Raynes Park Ward, asked the meeting to consider some resolutions, which he subsequently reported by e-mail to Merton’s Planning Department, as follows:
`This meeting rejects the Draft Supplementary Planning Brief and urges Merton Council to produce its own planning brief in accordance with planning rules`

This was passed unanimously (the meeting objected to a brief prepared with substantial resource and input from the owner/developer and without review and consultation on alternatives to the proposal put forward in that brief), and;
`This meeting rejects residential/housing on the Rainbow site`
This was passed by approximately two thirds majority.
Rod Scott asked the Planning Department to assure that these important expressions of residents are considered and that these views are given full weight in the future plans for the Rainbow site.
