Our Community Vision for the future of the Carriageworks
People’s comments on the Fifth Capital proposals
What are the water run-off plans?
Given that the value of these buildings have given their owners assets on their balance sheets, isn’t it time for the local community to benefit?
Why should we accept profit making outsiders over the popular model developed by CAG and Knightstone, designed to meet local need?
Not by commercial non-local.
Anything to stop foreign investors bulk buying?
How can we trust a company whose representative so blatantly disrespects the Chair of this community meeting? (refers to architects refusal to keep to agreed time).
As the Chair of a Social Housing group why should I support this (at present I am urging Councillors to reject) as:
No social housing – shared equity is NOT social
Car parking is naive
Money not clear
Relationship Fifth Capital and (Comer)
No community element
Why are there no detailed plans on display tonight?
Comparison with the Knightstone scheme is unfair. Their proposals were really very early stage ideas. This should be made clear.
How to you feel about riding on the back of years of community work and wrecking it?
This is a real tooth and claw private development that offers little or nothing to the local community. It offers nothing in terms of self-determination. It is a luxury development visited upon a vibrant community that will change its nature irrevocably – all in pursuit of profit. How do you sleep at nights?
There is no element of community ownership in this development.
This is a purely commercial development. It is not clear how this benefits the local community.
