Online petition: calling for a public meeting on Wilmer Place

We were out on Church Street last Saturday collecting signatures calling on Newmark Properties and Sainsbury's to attend a public meeting to discuss their proposals for Wilmer Place. This is following their refusal to meet with local residents and businesses.

Despite it being a blustery morning, we collected nearly 150 signatures in just an hour and a half.

Concerns about the development have been raised with us repeatedly over the past few months and remain unanswered, including the impact on: traffic; road safety; the Stoke Newington Conservation Area; biodiversity; and the provision of affordable housing.

The petition is calling on Newmark Properties and Sainsbury’s to attend a public meeting in to discuss the proposals with local residents and that both companies commit to attending such a meeting before any planning application is submitted.

The petition is now online and you can sign it by clicking here.

Please note - this is a different petition from the Stokey Local one as ours is focussed on calling for a public meeting. Please sign both and support the Stokey Local campaign.
