Events in Battersea Park: 2015/1887

The Battersea Society wish to object strongly to the inclusion in this composite application from the Borough Council of further FE events in Battersea Park in 2016 and 2017.

This application is premature in that assurances were given to members of the FE Community Forum, when the original permission was granted, that there would be a full assessment of the impact of this year's FE event on the 27/28 June 2015 before decisions were taken on repeating the event in future years.

The timing of this application does not allow such assessment to be made before the PAC meets in July. We therefore ask that the item 34 on the diary list in Appendix 1 to the application referring to FE races is either removed or deferred until an assessment of the impact of this year's event has been undertaken and fully considered by technical assessors, officers, and the Community Forum.
