A condition of Fifth Capital’s planning permission is that they consult with us on the management plan, employment and training, materials and finishes, and the public art plan and cultural programme.
Furthermore, we haven’t given up trying to get more affordable or even social housing in the development and are plugging away with housing associations that might be able to help. We’re also trying to ensure that the management and lettings on the ground floor provide the best fit and opportunities for the local community.
To ensure that we give effective input to the details of the development we need to agree how we organise ourselves in the coming months. So we’re holding a community meeting – Tuesday 1 December at 6:30pm at the Salvation Army citadel on Ashley Road (now reopened after their own redevelopment works).
This will also be an opportunity to get the latest on the site proposals.
Everyone is welcome to come along.
