Discontent with Councillor White continues to grow

Four months on from the announcement that the village greens had been saved, locals in Havering are now preparing for a further protest.

The Leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White announced in September that Gooshays Green and Dovers Green were saved from development. However, local residents living near want their land saved under village green status to keep it permanently protected from future developments.

Councillor Graham Williamson of South Hornchurch said “Locals were promised last year by the Leader that the Council was dropping his plans to build on the Dovers Farm Green and that some form of legal protection would be introduced. Locals are demanding that that actually happens!”

Councillor White has faced a lot of backlash of late due to the increase in parking charges and the removal of the thirty minutes free parking. These ongoing protests are now becoming the norm outside the town hall.

Wednesday 22nd of January is the next full council meeting at the town hall in Romford and groups of protestors are already preparing themselves for another demonstration. There are a number of groups planning to attend including, Cranham residents who are concerned about the developments planned in the area, including the Pitch’n’Putt site, the Wennington Village Green Association, Dovers Farm Green residents, Gooshays Village Green group, and the Parking Charges Opposition Group (PCOG).

Over the next week leading up to Full Council, we will be interviewing each of the groups to find out more details on why they are protesting and what they are looking to achieve.

    Councillor Damian White has long since wanted to join his pal Andrew Rosindale on the gravy train of being a local MP, Unfortunately for him Harold Hill is part of Havering and as we always get the shitty end of the stick from our beloved council his name is synonymous with back stabbing lies and deceit, he needs to learn that Harold Hill isnt just a poor relation of Havering but a major part of his constituency where people actually work for a living and we are fed up of being the Havering councils dumping ground for Newham refugees.
