Elliot Colburn updates on Sheen Way

Plans to build a school on the Sheen Way Playing Fields are now open for consultation.

Elliot Colburn, Prospective Conservative MP for Carshalton and Wallington said: "The Lib Dem-run Council is backing the building of a 246-place SEN school on the Sheen Way playing fields with a road entrance on Headley Avenue off of the High View estate.

"We all want to see local SEN pupils have a new school to go to, but local residents have concerns that they feel are being ignored.

"The site is off a set of narrow, already-congested roads, which will only be made worse with construction and school traffic.

"The Fields are home to wildlife, regularly used by dog walkers, but are also prone to flooding.

"Finally, this will mean another green space lost, leaving very little for local people.

"This is not right for local residents and cannot be the best we can offer our local SEN children - they deserve better from us."
