After a year of campaigning by local residents, huge and unprecedented pressure has forced Wandsworth Council to finally agree to use their planning powers to protect The Wheatsheaf, a much loved pub in Tooting Bec.

 

Sadiq Khan MP said:

 

"I am really pleased that Wandsworth Council has finally succumbed to the overwhelming pressure from local residents and made this u-turn at the eleventh hour. The continued delay over the last year has been an insult to the people of Tooting, and wider afield, who use The Wheatsheaf.

 

"Our campaign over the last 12 months has been relentless. And everyone's hard work has finally paid off. We have forced the Council to pull their heads out of the sand and finally save The Wheatsheaf!

 

"This Article 4 Direction is a clear warning to all potential developers to keep their hands off our pub. I want to thank the thousands of local residents who have been part of this campaign and shown the strength of people power. Together we have achieved this fantastic result."
