A blog post by Councillor Ben Andrew of Wandle Valley and Hackbridge
June 18th saw a return of Sutton’s committee with the least catchy name: the Conservation and Access Management Committee. It usually meets quarterly, and its job is to oversee Viridor’s restoration of Beddington Farmlands.
I first visited Beddington Farmlands when two residents got in touch to give me a tour. I was aware of the Farmlands as a local Councillor, but even though I lived five minutes away I had never visited myself. I was amazed that such a beautiful resource was sitting, largely empty on our doorsteps in Hackbridge.
