This will be a short update as we hope to see many of you at the open meeting on
FRIDAY , NOVEMBER 8 AT 7PM AT THE COOP COMMUNITY CENTRE IN SHOREHAM
There will be no speakers – just an opportunity for you to ask questions, have an update on IKEA, the Civic Centre, Focus, and parking, and put forward your own ideas of what is important to you.
AND – at the time of writing we have got a working air monitor which measures PM2.5 and PM 10 which we plan to demonstrate.
Feel free to just drop in for a hot drink, biscuits and a chat.
For those who are unable to attend there follows a brief summary.
A: WE HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON IKEA. A case inspectorate official for the department of Housing and Communities has sent us a letter asking for another month to review the New Monks farm development stating how complicated and voluminous it is. This is in response to our Freedom of Information request.
B.The ownership of the strip of land needed for the new roundabout has not been resolved. An Equality Impact Assessment has still not been done for the Withy Patch residents.
C.We have written to FOCUS about the parking overspill ( no reply) and met with the Gordon/ Rosslyn Road residents group who are suffering the brunt of the overspill.
- We have asked questions at a number of council meetings. We encourage as many of you as possible to attend a meeting and decide for yourself if this is the way you would expect your council to function. Should you take the plunge, feedback would be welcome.
