No new building on Wormwood Scrubs

We the under-signed resist any move to take any part of Wormwood Scrubs Common out of Metropolitan Open Land designation. We wish to protect the whole of the common for its original purpose, which, subject to Ministry of Defence uses, is to be for the enjoyment and leisure of all Londoners. We believe that all the parts of Wormwood Scrubs common, from the hedge-rows to the scrublands, from the playing fields to the play grounds form an integral whole. This applies as much to Linford Christie Stadium and its changing rooms as to any other part of the common.

    4 years ago Comments: The Linford Christie Staduim was built on scrublands which were part of Wormwood Scrubs Common and have become part of the local amenity associated with the Scrubs. The old changing room which were located near Old Oak Lane had become disused as the stadium took on the role as the main sports centre on the scrubs for sunday footballers, keep fit groups etc. Hammersmith & Fulham are trustees of this land for the enjoyment and leisure of all Londoners and should not endanger its rights by changing its original intent.
