Petition update

Last Thursday, we submitted our petition on Central Square to JRHT. On Friday, they asked us for a meeting, which we held yesterday (Monday), including representatives from the DRA core team, DGG, ABC:D, and DPAC: 

We discussed two things:

1. Central Square. We want them to stop using Central Square as a builders compound. This is perhaps the most densely populated area of the estate. JRHT had discussed some ideas around this and had some helpful proposals. We discussed their ideas and some of our own. JRHT are going to investigate some details of the options that were discussed. We hope to see some firmer proposals in the next couple of weeks and to have some better news – particularly for residents of Barron House and Newman House.

2. An earlier paper that we’d submitted about communications. JRHT were keen to get on with all the things that we’d specifically asked for in that paper, including the resumption of development liaison meetings that had been suspended during lockdown. These are liaison meetings between the DRA core team, JRHT, and the builders – to track issues with the build. In the past, we’ve used them to get things like sagging porches sorted across the estate, and MVHR reinstalled across Stephenson Quarter (phase 1), for example. We’re also looking forward to a more regular JRHT presence on the estate, and to regular JRHT reports in LotsOn.

Some details still need to be discussed, but we’re hoping these things will start this month.

This is all sound like very good news for all residents. Thanks to everyone involved in following up these actions.

Ian Thanks to all concerned for your efforts on our behalf. I am sure that the residents of the apartments would be delighted if the Central Square was to be landscaped as promised by JRHT and the proposal for it to be used for Phase 5 works were to be cancelled. We have had to endure over two and a half years of pollution, both noise and dirt so JRHT needs to accept that the residents have had enough. Kind regards Nick

I can’t thank the DRA enough for supporting the residents of Barron and Newman House apartments. Let’s hope JRHT listen to the impact this would have on
the resident’s mental health and landscape the area as promised. When residents don’t have gardens,a lovely outlook is imperative.
Thanks again to all involved.
