Chilcombe House mud bath

Background

To further highlight the car parking constraints on the Alton East this blog features the pressures on the Fontley Way area. This has featured many times in various media and most recently in the article featuring emergency vehicle access – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2020/02/08/should-alton-estate-residents-be-concerned-about-emergency-vehicle-access/ .

The area by Chilcombe House has become a mud bath with vehicles driving some distance over the green area by the recycling bins.

The area being referred to – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’50.8%22N+0%C2%B014’35.4%22W/@51.447443,-0.2437836,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4474431!4d-0.2431654

Views towards Chilcombe House

Views away from Chilcombe House

How it appears to be happening?

The arrow in the following photo highlights what appears to the path that vehicles are taking to access this car parking area.

Conclusion

The proposed Fontley Way decant site (planning application 2019/4697) is going to be built very nearby and it poses queries regarding the regeneration in that it does impact residents not in the demolition area. Is the number of car parking places proposed by this planning application going to be anywhere sufficient to alleviate the current challenges for existing residents in this area?

Labour Party 2014 campaign material – regeneration a “farce”?

Background

Recently it has been mentioned that it would be helpful to residents if the Councillors that were elected to represent its constituents provided regular updates on their promises.

Off the back of this it was thought that it might be of interest to highlight some of the past campaign materials and newsletters which the Labour Party has produced.

This 2014 Local Election leaflet mentions some interesting promises which have relevance.

Danebury Avenue – Tories don’t listen

The Alton Regeneration consultation “is already turning into a farce”……………………has it changed?

Labour pledge – ‘No’ to opening the Danebury Barrier

Hopefully some of you remember that two residents spent a day at Danebury Avenue barriers collecting signatures to keep the barrier closed………….not the Labour Party…………..

“Adequate provision for resident parking”……………….two regeneration decant sites on Alton East have result in a net loss of resident parking.

“Return to the same area post regeneration”……………..how many have left between now and then?

“Improved bus services”…………………yawn…………………this is dusted off and mentioned annually……………..thought what HAS been done is the question.

Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams

What’s been delievered?

Double glazing

Fontley Way is mentioned yet this was not handled well and there was many unhappy expressions of views about this and two years after the major works service charge was paid there is a further service charge bill? Where is the Labour Party in terms of reviewing this fiasco?

Tories in disarray

Hmmmmmmmmmm….for the 2018 Local Election wasn’t there a gent that was running for the ward and he dropped out which lead to Councillor Claire Gilbert being a candidate and then being elected Councillor.

Alton Estate residents – keep an eye out for fly tippers!

Background

On the 30 January 2020 a white van was spotted offloading boxes on the Alton Estate. An eagle eyed resident spotted the van doing this and took some photos which are highlighted below.

The van owner realised that he had been spotted and put the boxed back into the van and drove away.
