The team successfully protected Havelock Rec from being developed in 2015 and have been seeking extra protections since. Deeds of Dedication are a protection level above its current Metropolitan Open Land status and is a campaign promoted by Fields in Trust.
Cllr Michael Rutherford said: “For many years we have been strong supporters of Havelock Recreations Ground so are delighted to submit this application.”
Bob Neill MP added: “This deed of Dedication will strengthen the legal protections on the recreation ground. With the growing population in this area, a valuable open space like this that people can use will be all the more important.”
The application has now been submitted to London Borough of Bromley council. Michael, Will and Nicky have already started lobbying colleagues to support it.
