Angry campaigners determined to overturn plans for a sports centre development on fields in Nallhead Road have rolled out a new petition today (28).

A campaign group led by Keith Griffin, John Wimsett and Nadine Waghorn, of Hanworth, together with Debbie Adye, chair of Tudor Estate Residents Association (TERA), have started knocking on neighbours doors to gather signatures and rally as much support as possible against the building of the clubhouse by Powerleague.

Dozens of people living in the area who believe their lives will be blighted by the building proposals have already voiced their concerns and many more are coming forward to pledge their support to the campaign.

Mr Wimsett who is expecting hundreds of people to sign the petition between now and next Friday (Sept 5), said: "This is the last big move.

"It seems like there will be a sufficiently higher number of signatures than last time."

A total of 21 neighbouring properties were consulted by letter in May 2013, following the initial planning application.

Amendments were made to the original plans and a second consultation took place with residents in March this year, with around 150 signatures against the proposals, which include three five-a-side football pitches, three seven-a-side football pitches, a cricket net and basketball/netball court, a pavilion, bar, function room and an office.

However, members of the campaign group argue the need for a second petition is down to the fact more people are aware of what is being proposed now than they were six months ago.

Mr Griffin added: "The initial petition fell on deaf ears in the council planning department.

"I did a standard letter for our residents who did not have access to the Internet or were unable to compose a letter (i.e. elderly and disabled residents) but the council deemed these to be part of a petition not single objections.

"We believe the council may have suppressed the number of objections to this development they received."

MP for Feltham and Heston Seema Malhotra has backed the campaign and has written to the council over her concerns.

The planning application has been recommended for approval to the planning committee.
