With only 1 day to the Ravensbury draft masterplan: what is home to you?

@futuremerton @Circlemerton @htadesignllp? #Merton #Regen

How would you define “home”?

What is home on Ravensbury Village?
Why attempt to break a community such as Ravensbury that is not broken?

What is home without community? What is community without longevity?
What price do you put on the home of your community?

What do you have when a price is put on the heads of the homes of those who form a very substantial part of your community in Ravensbury?
What are the consequences once those who are supposed to manage your area begin to behave in an autocratic, self serving manner in order to take command of your community and your home?
What are the results of incompetent officialdom in the guise of a not for profit company wanting to fix a community that has never been broken?
Would we, the community, see a break down in the values that we have upheld for generations?
Would we, the community, see a future that diluted the strength of belonging, resulting in a less safe area devoid of everything that we have cherished and nurtured since its inception?!
Would we, the community, see a rise in anti social behaviour? Would we, the community, reap the consequences of a consultation that has been a travesty against the Merton public at large, that has tried to force itself on us from the very start, that chooses not to value the community in anything other than purely financial terms?
Is bang-per-buck the be-all and end-all of post-millennium society in Merton at large?
Is gentrification the end result of every regeneration project set upon the residents of Merton, whether they are freehold, leasehold or tenant?
We will make the voices of our community heard, no matter what hurdles or travesties are set in our way.
Ravensbury Residents.
