Continue Evening Football at St Mary's in Battersea
Wandsworth Council have recently denied planning (pending appeal) for evening and weekend social football at St Mary's primary school in Battersea. This is mainly due to a handful of local residents who feel that recreational sport will have a negative impact to their lives.
Official comment by Wandsworth Council. “By virtue of its location and close proximity to neighbouring properties the proposed development would have an unacceptable impact upon the amenity of neighbouring residents through light pollution, noise, activity and disturbance"
Prior to appealing Wandworth council’s decision, we are taking the necessary steps to appease local residents. Available out of school hours usage time will be adjusted from 39hr a week to just 12 hours a week. And light pollution/disturbance will be significantly reduced by the erection screens around the playing area.
The impact of closure will leave 3 members of staff unemployed, over 200 people without 40mins - 1hr exercise per week and a reduction of much needed secondary income to St Mary's Primary School.
