There is growing local opposition to the SCST’s proposals to construct a new building on its site and let it to Nelly’s Nursery. Unfortunately the SCST did not consult neighbours properly and started building work started before planning consent was achieved. There will now be two public consultation, tonight and next Wednesday, at the clubhouse to let residents know exactly what is planned.

The use of sports ground buildings for nurseries has happened elsewhere in Dulwich – it provides an income for the clubs and helps maintain their financial viability, but the main concern in Turney Road is the impact on traffic and parking.
