More about Newson’s Yard by BRA Chairman

You can submit objections directly to the Council: http://bit.ly/savenewsonstimberyard Newson’s Yard development has also been featured on BBC London news and can still be viewed online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DNyx16nvkI

I stressed to the reporter the impact on the community if Travis Perkins were to close, in that any tradesman working locally would need to drive to Battersea for local supply...more time and more traffic pollution and not to mention the loss to the landscape people at Chelsea Flower show each year who use this local store as a vital back up when setting up their gardens etc. Also what would the tradesman charge for collecting supply and being away for an hour from the job collecting the paint and/or nails, etc!
