Alton Area Regeneration News – July 2016
The issue of not every house on the Alton Estate not receiving a copy of the Alton Area Regeneration News continues and this was mentioned at the August Alton Regeneration Watch. Unfortunately, the July online edition of the newsletter was emailed to those on the Council’s database on Monday 1st August.
Some brief comments regarding the newsletter.
Section: The very first sites and new homes
There is no real detail as to what is proposed for the Alton East, for instance, is Heanen’s the butchers going to return when the new Petersfield Rise shops are built?
The picture seems to focus on the back of the building rather than the shop front. Wonder what the reason for that is?
Wouldn’t it better if there was a map of the area showing what is being proposed? Council Paper 16-277 provides background to what is proposed and could have summarised within the newsletter.
Section: Rents, service charges and Council Tax in new homes
There is no firm commitment to service charge costs, only the word “expects” with reference to service charges remaining the same or lower. For freeholders being offered a leasehold property this will be a new charge?
Wouldn’t an example of how the costs of what is now the case versus what it could possibly look like be of use?
Parking – in future
There seems to be a commitment to increase the car parking from its current size.
