Greatham Walk scaffolding and poor communication? Again? (19 February 2019)

Background

There are major works (C6433) currently being undertaken in the Hyacinth neighbourhood. There have been various articles about these works and it has been mentioned that the communication could be better when it comes to working with residents.

Greatham Walk scaffolding

The following photos were taken on 13th February 2020 of the scaffolding being placed in Greatham Walk. Again, like the Ryefield Path car parking, there seems to have been no communication regarding these being undertaken? The Stoughton Close/Greatham Walk/Ryefield Path Residents’ Association (SCGWRP RA) was busy highlighting this to the Council.

Letter from Ian Williams

On 19th February 2020, Ian Williams provided the following letter highlighting what was happening.

Why is it that residents seem to be managing the major works when they take place rather than the Council or the contractors themselves?

Ryefield Path car park – out of action for eight weeks?

Background

The Stoughton Close/Greatham Walk/Ryefield Path Residents’ Association (SCGWRP RA) considered that the removal of use of the Ryefield Path car parking area without any means of communication to residents was unacceptable.

This being a follow on the article regarding the major works impact on car parking in the area which includes this area being referred to – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2020/02/07/alton-east-under-car-parking-spaces-siege-ian-williams-major-works/

This also follows on from the contractor communication blog article – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2020/02/07/could-council-contractors-communicate-better/

As such the letter below was produced.

The letter

Conclusion

The Council needs to be better at communicating with its residents. How can a car park be taken out of action with no communication to residents and no idea of the timescale?

Alton East under car parking spaces siege? – Ian Williams major works

Background

A very hot topic on the Alton Estate is car parking, especially with regards to what is going on with the regeneration. Presently on the Alton East there are three main projects all happening at the same time which is adding to car parking pressures. These projects are:

  • Pocklington Court development (2018/0272) this being close to the intersection of Bessborough Road and Alton Road at the Heathmere School end.
  • Bessborough Road development (2017/6977) – this being at the other end of Bessborough Road almost at the intersection with Alton Road.
  • The major works being conducted by Ian Williams – this being in between the two other projects.

It was thought that residents may not be aware of what is happening and this might be of use.

The following will be photos of the car parking spaces being utilized by Ian Williams with approximate numbers of the amount of car parking spaces being lost to residents.

Timsbury Walk

Approximate number of car parking spaces used = 8

Do you note that the yellow grit box is behind the fencing? How are residents supposed to access this?

Conclusion

It seems to be that this major works is taking up circa 21 car parking places which is a considerable sum when factoring in the other projects in motion at the moment.

It’s wondered whether this messaging has been communicated to the Stoughton Close/Greatham Walk/Ryefield Path Residents’ Association (SCGWRP RA) which is in the area?

 Some comments about the meeting.

Section 5 – Roehampton Regeneration Update

Bearing in mind that no one from Redow or the Council’s regeneration team attended the WAHP on 4 December 2018 to provide an update in person or provide any pre-meeting materials one might have expected that the Council would have made sure a personal update was given, instead what was received was the presentation that was to be given at the December meeting and a two pager with the latest update regarding the regeneration – https://1drv.ms/b/s!ArEMr7ee7ZCNiSbMopCFSTrHYuAx

Section 6 – Performance Monitoring

It was asked by HCRA what would be required to seek changes to the report to include other information or modify the existing reports. There was some hesitation before the Council suggested that the BRF would be the place to request this. Not sure how this would work is one was an RA that was not on the BRF?

Section 7 – SIBs
