A Planning Application has been lodged to build on the Dulwich Hamlets football ground. The club would move to a new pitch and stadium to be built on the playing field behind. The Friends of Green Dale have indicated that they will be objecting strongly to the building on and enclosure of Metropolitan Open Land. The Camberwell Society will review the application and make our own comments. The deadline for responses / objections is 14th August so do look at the application (while there are over 100 documents you may find the "General Arrangement" Drawings most useful.
