Coverage of the community meeting on 16 November
The Carriageworks Community Meeting will be at 6pm on Wednesday 16 November at the Elim Kings Centre (used to be the Deaf Centre) on King Square.
There are major concerns about progress with development of the site, or the lack of it. That is leading some to ask if the compulsory purchase process should be restarted.
We have invited Marc Pennick, the Director owner of Fifth Capital, to come to the meeting and we’ve also asked the Council to come so that they can answer your questions about what should happen next to make sure that the development actually starts.
What questions do you want to ask?
If you can’t get to the meeting, let us know your questions and we’ll pose them to Marc Pennick and / or the Council. Use the form below, email to email@example.com, tweet to @carriageworks2 or facebook at fb.com/CarriageworksActionGroup
An amazing 40 people turned up for the community meeting on Tuesday 1 December. Goes to show that the future of the Carriageworks site is still live in people’s minds.

We asked people to sign up to any of the themes in which they are interested – thanks to all of you who did. We’ll be in touch in the new year when we start to discuss the various issues.
Finally, thanks to Ian Mountford for hosting us at the newly refitted Salvation Army citadel – great space!
