No Vote for Residents!
On the 13th October 2014, Paul Quinn (Director for Regeneration for Circle) stated in a letter addressed to Siobhain McDonagh MP, that NO VOTE will be available for the tenants and residents of Merton. He stated that instead, a survey would be conducted to measure opinion. This sounds suspiciously like the initial measure of opinion gleaned by Circle Housing in 2013, whereby maybe 1 in 100 were in favour of demolition unyet Circle told Merton Council that there was more than enough sufficient support for it!
Only a few weeks ago, Paul Quinn sat in the Ravensbury Residents Meeting and told us that there most definitely would be a vote by the residents and that if less than 50% were in favour, then it would not go ahead.
Once again, Circle Housing seem to be making it up as they go along.
