Hillingdon Council are planning to build flats on Yiewsley Recreation Ground. Hillingdon Labour are campaigning to stop this.
Almost 100 years ago, the local Council was given the land by local resident William Knowles, under the agreement that it would forever be reserved for recreational use. The Council have now entered into a process known as ‘appropriation’, with the aim to legally change the use of the land, and then to sell it to building developers, so that they can build flats for profit on the site.
There are not enough GP surgery spaces and school places to support more flats being built in the area, let alone the increase in crime and anti-social behaviour that could follow.
Yiewsley Labour Councillors, Sital Punja and Naser Abby, are opposed to this, and want the land to be protected for local residents as a park.
