Consultation Feedback

Main points raised by residents:

  • Loss of car parking space for local residents, their visitors, and the attendees of the local church (Assemblies of the First Born); some unhappy with current expensive parking permits
  • Massing, density, overlooking , “too many flats” … “will be an eyesore and in the way”
  • Concerns about redeveloping play areas that have recently been refurbished, also ensure play space remains overlooked from flats as at present, loss of the mural made by local children
  • Concerns about loss of the sheds bordering the play area that are very well used by residents for personal storage (their ‘attics on the ground’)
  • Improving play area and ‘opening up’ access from Berney Rd to Cromwell Rd should not make Berney Rd less secure, still need barrier to stop people encroaching to ground floor windows
  • Impact on property values if building too many new flats and leaving old looking dingy
  • Windows etc need renewal in existing blocks, new builds will leave the rest looking dingy
  • Will new tenants integrate, overuse of services, what kind of people will move in?
  • Concerns about impact of construction work, noise, disruption and inconvenience, where will people will park when construction starts?
