At tonight’s Ravensbury RA meeting we’ll run through the draft Local Plan that Merton Council have sent through everyone’s doors. Councillors David Dean (Con) and Stephen Alambritis (Lab) have said that they will attend.
There are many areas in this draft that require your attention, otherwise the future for Ravensbury could be decided by a poor set of principles being given the green light through a difficult-to-read booklet and little thought for those who actually live in the area.
If you read through the big booklet that was sent to residents, you’ll see that Merton has come up with ideas such as reversing the layout of the ground floor homes in Ravensbury Court. Merton also managed to “forget” to include the garages area in the guidance for building heights (pages 166 & 167), which is coincidentally the area that Circle Housing Merton Priory seem to be planning to use for Regen by The Back Door; thus showing complete disregard for proper resident consultation.
Doors open at 645pm, meeting begins at approximately 7pm: Ravensbury Meeting Hall on Ravensbury Grove.
We look forward to seeing you there.
