Background

BRIEFING PAPER FROM SAVE WIMBLEDON PARK ON PLANNING APPLICATION (21/P2900) (THE ALL ENGLAND LAWN TENNIS CLUB (AELTC) AND THE FORMER GOLF COURSE LANDS) [Revised 11/23]

Please see the land ownership map created by Ken McFarlane (Wimbledon Architect) at the end of this paper."...read more
