Sir Vince Cable intervenes in Udney Park planning controversy

Sir Vince Cable intervenes in Udney Park planning controversy

Local MP Sir Vince Cable has intervened in the long-running dispute over the future of the Udney Park playing fields in Teddington. Quantum Teddington Development Ltd has applied for permission to erect 107 residential apartments, a GP surgery and other buildings on the site in Udney Park Road – which the Teddington Society opposes.

In a letter to James Brokenshire, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Sir Vince wrote, “The overriding consideration has to be the fact that the development represents a serious breach of [Richmond] Council’s policy, which has wide support, to retain green open space (which would be lost permanently) and to retain playing fields which are widely used by the local community.”

The controversial planning application has attracted more than 4,500 representations to Richmond Council – believed to be a record for any planning application in the authority’s history.
