Chest-hospital development

Unfortunately the former Chest Hospital is falling increasingly into disrepair, becomes unsightly and now graffiti is also overtaking the boards.

Had an intersting conversation with a neighbour and we came to the conclusion that it is better to build over good housing land rather than let it rot.

Those who argue that we need more social housing. I agree but we do not have a choice between a social housing and a luxury gated proposal for the Chest Hospital. We only have the luxuty gated proposal.

Our children will not get any housing if we refuse all developments just because they are not social housing enough. We’ll end up with no housing at all.

It is better to build the needed housing.

Unfortunately this council has not come up with a social housing project for the former Chest Hospital.
