As currently planned, the project would see much of Wimbledon Town Centre destroyed, the loss of thousands of local jobs and a decade or more of major building works and traffic chaos.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our founding member Tony Kane. He did so much for #Wimbledon, setting up ⁦‪@Wimbookfest‬⁩ ⁦‪@timeandleisure‬⁩ and saving the old Town Hall buildings.
