NEW MAYOR OF LONDON QUIZZED ON CENTRAL HILL AND OTHER ESTATE ‘REGENERATION’ SCHEMES
Green party GLA borough-wide member Sian Berry has tabled three written questions to new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan over estates regeneration -and Central Hill estate in Upper Norwood.
The questions – due to be answered next week – are as follows:
Estate regeneration – resident support (1) Question No: 2016/1589 Will you immediately review the GLA’s funding for estate regeneration schemes in light of your manifesto commitment, requiring that ‘estate regeneration only takes place where there is resident support, based on full and transparent consultation, and that demolition is only permitted where it does not result in a loss of social housing, or where all other options have been exhausted, with full rights to return for displaced tenants and a fair deal for leaseholders’?
Estate regeneration – resident support (2) Question No: 2016/1590 Will you reflect your manifesto commitment on estate regeneration in your new London Plan? Central Hill Estate Question No: 2016/1591
While plans for the Central Hill estate are not directly funded by the GLA, will you lobby Lambeth council to ensure it runs a full and transparent consultation on how to refurbish and increase the numbers of homes on this estate, including options put forward by resident groups, and to ensure that no option is pursued for the estate without majority resident support?
