There’s room for 10,000 new homes on spare land in council estates, say Tories

We saw this article in today’s Evening Standard and thought it might be worth sharing.

Next time you have a wander around the Alton Estate have a look and have a think about where you might be seeing a new home.

We’d like to see the report “Gap in the market” which highlights 4,552 redundant spaces in 13 boroughs. Maybe it features Wandsworth, and maybe it features Roehampton. Then again, maybe it doesn’t at all.

HIGHCLIFFE DRIVE BARRIER – IS LABOUR LISTENING?

On 23.06.2014 we asked Councillor Peter Carpenter five questions regarding the proposal in Wandsworth’s Master Plan to remove the vehicle barrier at Highcliffe Drive and widen the road.

We asked:

  • Do you support this proposal?
  • How much will it cost?
  • Who is driving this proposal?
  • Have the residents been properly consulted regarding this proposal?
  • What are the risks of a Judicial Review as a consequence of inadequate consultation?

Is Labour listening?  Read the conversation thread here and make up your own mind …

Labour pledged to keep the Danebury Avenue barrier closed to prevent rat-runs through the Alton.  But where’s the logic in keeping the barrier closed to vehicles in Danebury Avenue and removing the barrier in Highcliffe Drive? We will end up with the same rat-runs … they will just cost more.

If you are concerned by Wandsworth’s proposal to remove the barrier at Highcliffe Drive, widen the road and turn it into a two-way bus route like Danebury Avenue, remove car parking, cut down trees, and spend £2m on two new bus stops, email your Councillors and Labour’s Parliamentary candidate.

Labour says it is listening …. let’s see what action it takes!
