At October’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting, Cllr Mark Williams and his team will again be justifying his decision to build a new leisure centre on top of the Surrey Quays Wildlife Area. He has spent a month reflecting on his decision and doing the work that was missing in his previous report i.e. naming alternative sites and discussing their merits.
We have been promised a full presentation tomorrow (20th October) which will include architectural sketches of the new leisure centre and more information on the facilities themselves.
Make sure you’re there to hear it first hand. Just go to the reception at the Council’s offices (160 Tooley St) and ask for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
We still have lots of questions which we hope get answered tomorrow and whatever happens, we will fight on to prevent the destruction of trees and the relocation of the leisure centre.
