Metropolitan Open Land designation, Clapham Common

J. Clyne made this Freedom of Information request to Lambeth Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lambeth Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lambeth Borough Council,

Environmental Information Regulations

An area of Clapham Common, namely Windmill Drive and a large area to the north of it, is no longer designated as Metropolitan Open Land. Previously, as is clear from Unitary Development Plan maps, the whole of the Common (apart from a separate and narrow peripheral strip to the east of the A24) was designated as MOL. The council's current map for Clapham Common shows this designation as having been removed.

When was Windmill Drive and an area to the north of it dedesignated as MOL? And what procedures and consultations were conducted to achieve this dedesignation? How was this change publicised?

Yours faithfully,

Jeremy Clyne

Dear Lambeth Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Lambeth Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Metropolitan Open Land designation, Clapham Common'. The requested information was not provided.

The response to my request stated that the boundary of Metropolitan Open Land boundary of Clapham Common was changed on the "UDP Proposals Map 2007" to exclude Windmill Drive and a large area to the north of it.
How is this compatible with the 2002-2017 UDP proposals map which shows the entire common as MOL? See:
https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkR_DxzXh-fHiFkJRLwI...

The green shaded area is MOL.

Please provide a copy of the "UDP Proposals Map 2007" showing Clapham Common referred to in the response, if this differs from the proposals map of which I have provided evidence, and please provide any evidence, as requested previously in my original information request, of the process by which this part of Clapham Common (Windmill Drive and the area to the north of it) was allegedly dedesignated, including any evidence that this change was advertised or that the public, Mayor of London or Wandsworth Borough Council were consulted and/or notified.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

J. Clyne
