Council fails again on Lido

Greenwich Council has reneged on its promise about the future of Hornfair Lido after Labour Planning Committee members approved plans for its redevelopment, without consulting local residents as agreed. Cllr Graeme Coombes, who attended the planning meeting requested Councillors consult further with residents living next to the Lido, to take on board local concerns before agreeing any plans. Sadly, Labour Councillors decided to ignore local residents and voted the plans without further discussion. Graeme commented “Whilst I support the development of Hornfair Lido, it is a great pity Labour Councillors chose to ignore local opinion on the issue.

However, I remain hopeful that development of the site will bring considerably improved leisure facilities at the Lido”.
