If, like us, you’ve struggling through the mire of emails and websites to try and find out whom, and which is group, is saying what about the regeneration, then hopefully this webpage will assist you. From one resident we’ve had the following feedback “The site should become the go-to place for us to know what’s going on. It would save everybody a lot of bother if the council automatically sent you any relevant document (or link to such). That way, anything not voluntarily forwarded, we’d know they are trying to keep quiet about”.
Going forward we’ll try to update this page with information about the Roehampton Regeneration that is available from the various groups. We can’t guarantee that we will capture all information here, though we shall do what we can.
Feedback we’ve had a Councillor regarding the prominence of the Roehampton Partnership within the regeneration process was that “The Roehampton Partnership is the key consultative body for the Roehampton Regeneration”. When asked about the lack of information available on this key consultative body the response “You are also right in thinking that information on the Roehampton Partnership on the Wandsworth Council website is rather sparse”. Shame it’s taken a resident from the Alton Estate to highlight this………………….

Shame this is not published online, so we’ve taken upon ourselves to put it online starting with April (because that’s when we started to scan them!).
Let’s see what the Labour Party have had to say about the regeneration. It’s been commented that this regeneration process is a ‘farce’ but what is being done about it?
Let’s see what the Conservatives have had to say about the regeneration. Not a lot, we’ve seen just the one example.
- May 2014 – just before the elections is the first time the Regeneration is mentioned as a resident concern, with Danebury Avenue being highlighted)
What did UKIP say prior during the 2014 Council campaign.
