THE AIR OF NEW MALDEN
It all started with our members. Questions about Air Quality in and around New Malden were being raised more and more as winter was coming to an end and people were getting out and about.
It took considerable organising but a public meeting was held with the eminent Prof. Frank Kelly, attended by our Members, Councillors, and James Berry MP. That was at the beginning of September, even before that meeting we were taking steps to obtain our own equipment in order for the Association to assess for itself, the state of the air we all breath daily.
Today saw a further step in that direction.
With the help of Caroline Russell, (London Assembly Green Party Member) we installed the first of ten Air Quality Monitoring tubes. When sampling is complete we will return them for laboratory analysis then publish our results. Thank you to all those who responded when we asked for test kit locations.
90 More on the Kingston Road
The Prince Of Wales pub on the corner of Dickerage and Kingston Road has
been acquired by Yara Students - a company specialising in providing
Luxury Student Accommodation.
In a letter sent to some local residents they state.
' Following a positive pre-application discussion with council officers,
Yara Students is proposing to submit a planning application for 90 high
quality managed student apartments that will transform the unoccupied
site and help meet an identified specialist housing need in the borough,
as well as deliver a boost to the local economy through increased
spending in local shops along the Kingston Road'.
If the application, as stated above is approved, that will bring the total to almost
700 student units on the Kingston Road.
I am sure you have some thoughts on this so please let us know.
