DEFEND OUR DEN sign the petition now....Regeneration Land Grab

DEFEND OUR DEN


The popular Lions Community Centre under attack from Lewisham Council

Lewisham council are close to selling the land around Millwall which includes the stadium car park and the much praised Millwall Community Trust building (Lions Centre) to a developer Renewal who's holding company is off-shore registered. How can a off-shore registered company be part of the community and transparent in their day-to-day dealings? They cannot, you move your operation off shore for one reason, avoiding tax. It all sounds a bit dicky to me.

There is a link within this article which shows the statement that Millwall's chairmain John Berylson has penned to Lewisham council.

17/2/16
At the Lewisham Council cabinet meeting regarding this land grab it was said "it has come to our notice that the circumstances of the Compulsory Purchase Order necessitate further investigation before this matter can be considered"

There is now a referral to this sell off of our our land and now it's a chance for Millwall FC to voice it's aspirations for the club and it's assets and let them know we have every right to be involved in decisions that will impact on the club and all of our futures.. We must get this right

18/2/16- 9.25pm: The petition has now reached 17000 and still climbing. The comments left on the web-site by people who signed the petition are amazing and it shows that not just Millwall supporters are against this council madness, thanks to them all including George from Crawley.

8/9/16-Six cabinet members on Lewisham Council voted for CPO for the land around around the ground and we are shafted by six cabinet members who are extra cosy with the off shore property developer company Renewal. They are also shafting our local neighbours at the Den and in cahoots with Renewal offering derisory amounts of compensation for the land. John Berylson has stated that "we are not going to give in and it still can be stopped. 25000 have now signed the Defend Our Den petition. Six people voted for this nonsense and if that's democracy I'm the pope.
