Petition against use of Central Square for phase 5

Following the recent leaflet from JRHT about planned construction work, the Derwenthorpe Residents Association has had quite a lot of feedback from people in the community who are extremely concerned about the use of the Central Square area as a compound during the development of Phase 5.

We think it’s very important that JRHT understand the strength of feeling in the community about this and so the DRA have started a petition with the wording:

“We oppose the proposed plans by the firm building Phase 5, having access to use the Central Area Compound. We want to see the Central Area raising of road levels, and the creation of a New Central Area completed as a priority.”

Volunteers are going door-to-door to collect signatures and so you should hear from them in the next week.

If you’d like to get involved in collecting signatures please email

We’d also like to hear any other feedback you have on JRHT’s leaflet, feel free to leave a comment or drop us an email

Will there be a way to electronically sign? I’m working in Mali and will not be home for several months.


We’re trying to be careful not to double count people so we’re going to do it door-to-door in person to start with. Clearly you’re not going to be around so if you’re happy for us to add your name I’ll make sure you get added to the list.

The same goes for anyone else who won’t be around. Please post a comment to confirm your oppose the plans and we’ll work out a way to add you to the list.


You spoke with my husband but I was on a zoom call, I’d really love my name to be added to this if possible!
