The Council is negotiating turning Ive Farm Playing Field, which they have left derelict, into a campsite for the Olympics.
Is the Council keeping local residents in the dark about this, hoping that they can sneak it through without proper consultation?
Oliver Close, Villiers Close and Ive Farm Close residents whose homes back onto the site will certainly have objections particularly if, like the site in Walthamstow, it has live entertainment and bars serving alcohol.
The Liberal Democrat Group Leader and Leyton Ward Councillor Bob Sullivan says:
“There must be proper consultation with local residents, If the Council forces this through all proceeds should go towards bringing the playing field back into use.”
