Last chance to stop flawed plans for London

The London Plan is due to be published in the next few weeks

A leading London QC has agreed to give me written advice as to whether there is a case for challenging the plan and I need to raise funds before I can finalise a contract

I believe that I have evidence that shows that the process by which plans for massive growth in The Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames, and perhaps for similar areas targeted for "transformation" across London, are deeply flawed

From Kingston to Croydon, from The Lee Valley and Enfield to the Royal Docks and Beckton Riverside, from Hounslow to Southall and Ealing and from Stratford and the Isle of Dogs to Haggerston and Elephant and Castle - all over London targets for massive housing and jobs growth have been pushed through with little or no say from the communities that will be affected by them, and with inadequate and incomplete assessment of the impact of development on the natural and historical environment and biodiversity

From the date The London Plan is published, we will have only a matter of weeks to launch a challenge in the courts if we need, and want, to do so

Will you donate towards the initial cost of legal advice which will amount to no more than £4000?

I will keep any money I raise in excess of the agreed fee to fund any further legal advice or legal action. At the end of the process, I will donate any funds remaining to the NHS Charities Together Appeal

What advice am I seeking?

The QC will advise on whether the London Plan meets statutory requirements with respect to growth targets and the protection of the environment and heritage assets

What will I do with the advice?

If the QC agrees there are merits in my case, I will be able to use the written advice to:

a. Support my request to the Mayor of London to address those issues before he publishes the London Plan
b. Publicise widely how the way in which plans for massive growth have been agreed in Kingston and across London is not legally sound
c. Raise awareness about the threat to the natural environment and biodiversity across and beyond Greater London from the London Plan
d. Raise more funds for a possible legal challenge
e. Launch legal action against the London Plan as a last resort

Please support me now

This really is our last chance to stop these flawed plans
