WALTHAMSTOW STADIUM-COUNCIL DECISION FIXED?

Walthamstow Stadium took a sensational twist yesterday that could throw the whole application out with legal challenges to the council now set to follow. The Chief Whip has been accused of fixing planning applications in the Borough by the Chair of the planning committee, Councillor Barnett.

Councillor Barnett accepts that the matter must be fully investigated and that the matter calls in to question the decision of the committee to approve planning permission to London & Quadrant. It is alleged that pressure was put on fellow Councillor Ebony Vincent who voted in favour of the L&Q application in the 4:3 decision.

Saveourstow and Stow Residents Association claimed that the decision was predetermined in their opening speech at the planning meeting. A councillor told the association that a “political” decision had already been made before the committee sat.

We welcome the ‘whistle blowing’ and urge the council to offer no resistance to the judicial review. If the council is to retain any shred of credibility whatsoever, there must not only be an investigation in to the whole matter including the Walthamstow Stadium application but this investigation must be fully independent and not internal.

    I said a long time ago that I knew that the decision had already been made even before the Planning Meeting and also offered the Chair of the Meeting the chance to justify the decision by the means of a Bye – Election which he refused knowing that he would lose. An Independent review must now be the only course of action by the Council and reverse the Approval immediately. Also maybe now some Councillors should do the ‘Honourable’ thing and fall on their swords and seek redemption from the voters. I’m SURE there is more ‘Bad’ news to come from the Council fairly soon.
