Save the Oakfield Site - Petition

Well, as it is St. George’s Day, it is time to don your red and white tunic and pick up your metaphorical sword to slay the dragon of innapprpropriate development, if you so wish …

Unsurprisingly, some local residents are not happy and a campaign is brewing up nicely. There is nothing like an external threat to unite the people. We have already met some of the lead campaigners in (where else) the Fairlop Oak and are working closely with the Old Parkonians.

They are putting the e-petition facility on the award winning council website, Redbridge-i, to some well deserved use. Here’s the link.

You will find that if you are already registered with Redbridge-i your exisitng User ID and password will not work. It appears to be a separate registration process from the main site, which might explain the dearth of signatures on the other two active petitions. There is also nowhere to log out or log off. You have to close your browser to do that.

If you wish to be kept informed you can email the campign team here.

  1. Is there another way to sigh the e-petition? I have tried to register as a new subscriber and it won't let me, saying my password is invalid although I only created it 10 seconds earlier.
    Also I cannot email the campaign team as 'the default mail client is not properly installed

    1. Er, yes! I also found it kept rejecting my password but then I found that it had already logged me in and I had signed the petition - have you checked?

      If still having probs then complain to redimanager@redbridge.gov.uk

      If I didn't know any better I'd think someone didn't want the e-petition facility to work ...

      The campaign email is working OK from this end, at least i haven't had a bounce message.

  2. Why is it that just about everything about Redbridge's crappy website seems to have been designed to make access almost impossible?

    Could I also point out to the admirable organisers of the petition that the three councillors correctly named actually represent Fairlop Ward, not Hainault.

  3. Thank you to B21 to encourage us to sign the petition and guide us!
    Had to try twice and it worked second time when I used my email address and the password I use to log on the redbridge website.

  6. I registered all my details and then the registration page went back to the beginning. I then received an e mail confirming registration. Anyway, go to the e partition and you will find that you have registered and then click sign at the bottom

  7. You can not use your Redbridgei registration details, you have to create a new sign in.

    I went to the registration page and filled in all my details and then the registration page went back to the beginning. I then received an e mail confirming my registration. Anyway, go to the e petition page and you my find that you are already registered and then press SIGN at the bottom of the page.

  8. The Preferred Options Report, as you all know, has been through a statutory consultation and is in effect still doing so as objections continue to arise. At the end of this period it was intended that "the Council" would consider all representations received and use them to inform the "Pre-submission document" for a further six-week consultation prior to submission to a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State.

    Now, consideration by "the Council" was originally intended to consist of a review by the Local Development (LDF) Advisory Committee, followed by the Cabinet and then by Full Council. It now appears that the future Committee structure for consideration of Local Plan documents is still to be determined, and so "the Council" will not know the Membership or meeting timetable of the LDF Advisory Committee ("if indeed it continues in its existing format") until the end of May.

    One wonders why. I think we should be told.

    1. During the past 3 years the council has changed its motto. It used to be "In Unity Progress". That has changed to "In Dithering Confusion".

  9. Save Oakfield Site Pictures - https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3HiiX2s-ihndlRvbzY5YUhUX0k&usp=sharing

    When viewing these pictures remember that Redbridge Council states that the Oakfield site has no Green Belt value and that it is the zone to the East of the Central Line that gives the parcel known as "Hainault Field - GB13" the highest score of all Redbridge Green Belt parcels.

    They must mean the Car showrooms, the industrial estates, the Power League Soccer, the Caravan site, the unmanaged playing fields with inadequate facilities. Obvious really.

    Get involved

    1.send your email details to SaveOakfieldSite@gmail.com
    2.contact your councillors
    3.print and display the SOS poster (in the pictures link)

    1. Redbridge Council are like a group of poorly trained musicians: they don't know their brass from their oboe.
