It appears that the London Mayor has changed his mind over the proposed redevelopment of the Dulwich Hamlet Football Ground and has said that Southwark should approve the latest revised scheme which provides more social housing. This will mean a series of blocks of flats being built on the existing stadium site while a new stadium is built on the adjacent Metropolitan Open Land – even though the Mayor acknowledges that an enclosed stadium does not comply with MoL policy. The Society and many local amenity groups objected to the loss of MoL but it is clear that the Mayor considers the provision of new housing more important than the preservation of public open space.
