Back Garden Campaign Launched

October 25, 2006 9:48 AM
Launch Back Gardens Campaign

Local Lib Dems including Tom Brake and Paul Burstow, Cllr Sean Brennan and Leslie Coman launch the campaign

Sutton's Lib Dem MPs Tom Brake and Paul Burstow, Leader of Sutton Council, Sean Brennan, local Councillors and Ed Davey MP for Kingston and Surbiton joined forces to launch their Back Garden campaign last Saturday.

The launch took place in the back garden of Lord Graham Tope in Sutton.

The campaign spearheaded by Leslie Coman, until recently also a Sutton Councillor, which is to be rolled out nationally, seeks to change the planning status of back gardens. Currently they are considered brownfield sites in the same way as a site with a factory or warehouse making it easier for developers to build on them.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
