Ask the Mayor

John Biggs, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, is holding an “Ask the Mayor” session tonight, that deals with the future growth on the Isle of Dogs. The Mayor wants to make sure that growth works for local people.

The session is at Jack Dash House, Isle of Dogs, E14 9YQ from 7.30pm – 9pm. Doors open at 7pm. Come have your say.

Perhaps our area representatives can pick up some pointers what criteria is used and what ideas other locals have about expansion, because our area is faced with a considerable influx of new housing schemes.

A Tale of big cities

Yesterdays AGM of the Parkview Tenants and Residents Association, discussed the big new proposed changes affecting our area like the planned new dwellings on the site of the former London Chest Hospital and other plans wanting to change the canal bank from Parkview estate onto Regents canal, making it into a permanent mooring site for large houseboats for rent.
Both plans attracted various petitions against, though I have not been asked to sign any.

The agenda included the minutes of last year’s AGM, please follow link.
Furthermore the meeting gave me the chance to finally meet the new panel that established since Jackie Miller resigned from her post as Glasshouse administrator.
Allyson Matthews, the Tower Hamlets Homes, engagement officer, let us know that THH lets community centers to functioning TRAs for a token rent of £1 per year. The Centre needs many modernizations, though meets basic Health & Safety standards. It awaits to be discussed how much any party wants to invest into building maintenance of the Centre.
THH also pays yearly grants to TRAs at a rate of £100 + 50 pence per resident. As the Centre is likely to be used by more than just Parkview residents this should become a tidy sum!

Most needed is the ability to hold children’s’ birthday parties on Saturday afternoon without the use of amplified music.
There was mention that ASB reporting has changed and general advice given was to ring 101 who will channel the call or advice to ring 999 if needed.
That is all I had time for and I’ll have to wait for the minutes for further information.
Just one more addition the Parkview gardening group plans to give plants to residents to occupy their window boxes with.
