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.
