Complaint after 'flood' of pupil comments on Kingsbury High Lucozade Powerleague Planning Application

Roe GreenVillage Residents' Association have asked Nicky Morgan MP, Seceretary of State for Education, to intervene over the involvement of Kingsbury High pupils in the Lucuzade Powerleague planning application for the school playing fields.

The Residents' Association note a deluge of support for the application lodged on the Brent Planning Portal by pupils and ask whether it is appropriate for pupils not to have had a balanced presentation about the issues involved in a controversial development.

I think the pupils are old enough to be able to express a view but agree with the residents that a balanced presentation should have preceeded any writing - perhaps a debate at the school involving representatives of both sides.
