• Udney Park Playing Fields: residents have their say

• Udney Park Playing Fields: residents have their say

On November 13th the Udney Park Playing Fields public inquiry held an open mic session, enabling local residents and other interested parties to express their views about the proposal to build 107 apartments on Teddington’s much-loved (and well-used) local green space.

Some 25 residents spoke at the session, roughly 80/20 against the proposal. Hampton Wick Councillor Robin Brown spoke against, and Munira Wilson, the LibDem parliamentary candidate for Twickenham, also attended. She later described the building plan as “totally inappropriate”.

Before the session, a group of 100 or more concerned Teddington residents and their children gathered outside to voice their feelings about destroying green space in our town.

In a highly vocal but good-natured demonstration, the message was clear: ‘Leave us space to play and breathe’. The Teddington Society wholeheartedly agrees.

The public inquiry concerns a property developer’s plan to build 107 apartments and other properties on the Udney Park Playing Fields – a designated Local Green Space. More than 1,500 written objections to the proposed development have been submitted from individuals, local and national sporting organisations and leading local sports personalities. The public inquiry continues.
