I have just learnt that developers plan to convert the East side of Haven Green into a six-lane wide bus stop and stand.
This will create an insurmountable 'double decker barrier between the heritage, sunlit Edwardian terrace of shops and the rest of Haven Green.
The developers claim in their planning application that they're doing this on behalf of the council.
Why won't the council listen to its residents and locate the bus station over the Tube and rail station, like Hammersmith, instead of converting Haven Green into an ever smaller and less accessible traffic roundabout?
The elderly, families with children, travellers with luggage, and shoppers need the shortest interchange possible between tube, rail and buses.
Please ask your readers to write to the council's planners and tell them that the current application just is not on. A haven is defined as a place of safety and shelter..
