We have objected to plans by Ealing Council to deregister part of Haven Green common.
The council wants to legitimise a cycle hub which was constructed unlawfully on the common in 2012. This did not receive the necessary ministerial consent for works on common land before it was installed.
We argue that the council should offer land in exchange for the common which has been purloined for the cycle hub, but the council claims this is not necessary. While the society supports the provision for cycling, we contend that such provision should not be sited on common land.
We are backing our member, the Friends of Haven Green which has also objected most strongly.
