Alton East – was there a consultation?

Background

This week we received a pamphlet from Team Roehampton which highlighted information about what was happening on Alton East as per of the Alton Masterplan.

Has the actual plan been shared with the residents of Alton East?

That depends on how one defines the word ‘shared’. The plan itself was within the Preferred Masterplan Options presentation board which, as far as we are aware, was not distributed to Alton households.

It was not mentioned in either the Options or Preferred Options questionnaires.

Has this been queried?

Yes, twice by the Roehampton Trust.

The first time at the July 8th Roehampton Partnership – “……..added that despite living on the Alton East she was unaware of any information about the regeneration”.

 The second time at the Let’s Talk evening at the 29th September.

 Summary

We’re not convinced there was any real consultation with regards to the Alton East. If there was, how could this be queried by the Roehampton Trust, a member of the Roehampton Partnership?

This ‘consultation’ seems to be a like one we read about recently in The Independent.
