Meeting on Crossrail 2 and Springfield Hospital Development

For all residents on January 12th

Dan Watkins (Tooting Conservative candidate for the May General Election), Wandsworth London Assembly Member Richard Tracey, and local councillors invite residents to a Public Meeting on Monday 12th January 2015 at 7pm, Central London Golf Centre, Burntwood Lane, SW17 0AT.

There is much interest and concern from local residents regarding these two separate Consultations, so senior officers from Transport for London, Springfield Hospital, and Wandsworth Council have been invited to talk about the plans, as well as to take questions.

A brief summary of each project:-

a)      Springfield Hospital is seeking approval to start building housing on the site in advance of any planned phasing of the project and putting aside some of the conditions set by the Secretary of State, such as to safeguard open spaces and local residents.

b)      Crossrail 2 is consulting on its safeguarding route , which in Tooting constituency runs underneath Wandsworth Common, Trinity Road and Tooting High Street, and includes provisional access shafts on Wandsworth Common and Trinity Fields.

Both consultations close later in January and the local politicians very much hope to see many residents at this meeting so that they can have a say on these important local projects, as well as gather more information.

If any are unable to make the date but wish to provide views, please email Dan Watkins at
