    Does anyone know if there's a way of finding out if you've already commented on the Stadium appeal? I'm sure I did it ages ago, but can't find a way of checking for certain.

    Not sure. Of course you could sift through all the comments and check but that would take ages. In any case does it matter? If you want to make further comment then do! If you've commented previously then your comments will be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate but you can still make further comment and I'd suggest you do.

    We have just over a week to make comments to the Planning Inspectorate. These are people who will decide the outcome of this appeal and who might not know anything about our Club, what we've done in the community, and why it's important to stay in East Dulwich.

    Don't hesitate and think we'll be okay because someone else will comment. It's 5-10 mins online max to make your voice heard. Make it count!

    Just completed my 'representation'.

    Harman is my MP so will send her a hard copy. Is there a painless way of working out who my local councillors are so I can send hard copies to them too? Al Crane pompeydunc

    Excellent opportunity for everyone to spend 10 minutes putting in their comments today!

    We've produced a step-by-step guide to submitting comments on the Planning Inspectorate website here

    Guidance on what to say (other than your passionate description of what the Hamlet means to you and the community) can be found here for the main application and here for the Section 106 application.

    A copy of the leaflet that we've produced and been handing out over the last couple of weeks can be found here and contains similar guidance to that above.

    Finally, if you have any queries or problems making comments then you can email us at or here and we'll do our best to respond as helpfully as we can.

    Couldn't agree more...the Trust have really stepped up to the plate on this, over the last few weeks.

    Al Crane I've been asked today is the deadline 11:59pm or can people get their comments in on the 7th?

    I've told people to get them in today and will chase again.

    Well I've just posted mine from thei nternet in Dulwich Library, on my way to the ground, and they accepted it. &th March ends tonight at midnight, if they meant last night at midnight it would surely have said the 6th?
    So please, everyone , get all of your work colleagues and friends to support this appeal to the Planning Inspectorate today, it doesn't have to be detailed, you don't have to local, or even from England!

    Did mine very late last night and likewise just heard from a mate who put his in just now. As I intimated it wasn't clear (by can mean before) but anyway we know now. See you in a bit mate.

    Interesting High Court decision this week in favour of QPR's new training facility on Metropolitan Open Land.

    Actually, replying to myself, it is interesting, because you said 'in favour', but would have preferred a link, if you saw it on-line.

    Hi. I originally saw it on a website that has a paywall but there is an article here. Some similarities, some thing different, but seems to suggest MOL not sacrosanct to alterations in favour of community and sporting uses.

    When realistically do you think we will hear anything about this, can Southwark just ignore this too?

    If you mean the decision of the Planning Inspectorate, then I understand it, though clearly I'm no planning expert, their decision 'trumps' that of the whatever the Council say, the Planning Inspectorate will over-ride it....even though the Council haven't made a decision.
    I don't know one hundred per cent if the Council can appeal a Planning Inspectorate decision, I am guessing they might be able to, but it would be very expensive.

    I would have thought that it would go to appeal for the Mayor of London but highly unlikely. Not sure if it's of enough strategic importance i.e. we don't have to build new transport links.

    A Planning Inspectorate decision can be overturned via a Statutory Review (aka a Judicial Review) in the High Court.
    In practice it is highly unlikely that the High Court would overturn a Planning Inspector's decision.

    The Planning Inspectorate has written to Southwark (the letter was posted on Southwark's website today) to say that the appeal will be heard at the Council Offices at 160 Tooley Street from 10am on 12th December. It has requested that the venue be reserved for 8 days.

    It's a good thing. By that time, we'll be selling out every week at the top of Conference South and the need for a new ground will be evident to even the meanest nimby intellect.

    Anyone else get a letter from the council about the stadium development this week? Haven't seen anyone else on here mention it.
  29. jnrknight

    jnrknight James Knight

    I did. Seemed a generic response to anyone who'd 'borne witness' or 'made testament' or whatever their stupid jargon was about the club & the development proposal. Did make mention of the fact the council had received a large amount of correspondence on the matter.
