Vipers Bugloss - Burgess Park west meadow (towards Wells Way)
New westside meadow starting to look really lovely, ablaze with oxeye daisies, knapweeds, sainfoin, birdsfoot trefoil, echiums, red and white clover, vetches and many other plants. The annoying fencing will come down but good to protect it while it establishes.

Burgess Business Park 
This large site on both sides of Parkhouse St backs onto Burgess Park west.  There are a total of 683 homes proposed as well as retaining the industrial employment space. All of the schemes are now on the planning portal.
Now is the time to comment on the planning applications. It is easy to do. Tenants and owners comments are both are VERY important in the decision making process by the council planning committee.  

Come to the Planning Aid London Training Tuesday 22 June details above.
