Please read email below, thanks to Matt Shearing and Lars we have these details.
A bit of a plee for help here. Lambeth council are potentially planning to either reduce the sports playing area of Clapham Common or remove the sport of Ultimate Frisbee altogether. This would be a terrible thing to happen since the vast majority of frisbee activities happen here. There is however an option to improve the sport facilities on the Common as well. If you use the Common or have in the past please take time to visit the web link, look at the options and fill out the questionaire. Because the deadline is this weekend, Lars managed to get a fax number (020 7383 4798)to use. Hopefully with enough intrest we can get them to go with the expanding sports facilities idea.
Thanks for your time

I just gave them a quick call to see if they accept faxed questionaires

everyone - just 5 mins of your [companys] time.
They did say they would allow a few days grace for posted
Here is the fax number: 020 7383 4798 (attention Shona Williams) and
I've even attached the questionaire
