Tonight, Circle Housing and HTA Architects will be holding their second design meeting on the regeneration of Ravensbury.
In the last meeting in June 2014, they made what could only be described as a “drunken lunge” towards their own ideas of a design consultation, so here’s the pictures from the last design meeting held by HTA Architects and their client Circle Housing.
In that particular meeting, residents were angered by the way that the architects repeatedly told them to think of the greater good in opting for flats rather than houses. On hearing this, many thought that Circle must be having meetings with the architects in private where preferred options have been proposed. This was because the residents had explicitly told them that they want houses, not flats, and that they are happy to keep their current homes.
Because Circle Housing do not publicise the meeting minutes, we are all of the opinion that (unless evidence proves otherwise) Circle have definitely been pulling the strings in the background. After all, even Merton Council have said that the meetings between them and Circle Housing are off limits and the minutes are not to be published!
Pix below. See you at the Ravensbury Meeting Hall on Ravensbury Grove between 6pm and 8pm tonight (30th July 2014)
