Banned from Battersea Park

The Battersea Park Action Group is striving to save Battersea Park from three weeks of closure this summer for the Formula E car-racing series, with its associated noise and damage to this peaceful, Victorian, grade II*-listed park.

The campaigners are seeking pledges for funding to support their legal challenge against Wandsworth Council which has granted planning permission for the event.

The case has wider relevance because councils are increasingly promoting the use of public parks for noisy, damaging commercial events. The society is backing the campaigners.
