Enquiring Minds

It is arguably the biggest local issue affecting Worcester Park. The debate has been raging for several years, with 'people power' being victorious so far in curbing the expansion of The Hamptons development (St James Homes having twice had their planning application for provision of 184 extra dwellings rejected by Sutton Council).

Next week marks a crucial stage in the fight, with the issue now subject to a Public Enquiry.

The Public Enquiry will be held from Tuesday (17th March) to Friday (20th March) at The Orchard Suite in The Holiday Inn, Sutton .

If you wish to speak at the Public Enquiry, you must be there when the enquiry opens on the first day at 10am.

I really don't see what's wrong with The Hamptons. To me it looks well made and the park is quite a nice touch. I'd rather live there than in one of the flats on Central Road for instance.

Maybe if there were more people there'd be more to keep the local shops going and we'd have fewer charity shops on the high street ;)

I think a lot of people are jealous really it does look like a nice place to live and I'm not surprised they want to keep some of the riff raff away from their nice houses
