Halloween horrors a day early in H&F

Tuesday 30 October sees major meetings at Hammersmith Town Hall about two of the most controversial local issues of recent times.

First, the council's licensing panel will hear a wide-ranging application from the Conservative council itself for Ravenscourt Park and Bishop's Park to host events from boxing and wrestling to concerts and parties. Local residents have expressed outrage at the prospect of thousands of drunken people regularly invading their parks. This just three days before the annual fireworks displays in the parks.

Then on Tuesday evening the council's planning applications committee will consider a proposal for a huge office and entertainment building on the NCP site at the southern end of Hammersmith Grove. Again local residents are outraged by the planned 'Armadillo' development in this area.

The Tory council in Hammersmith & Fulham faces its own Halloween horrors early. Remember, remember the 30th of October....
