Yesterday’s meeting of the Parkview Residents Association introduced us to our new community support officer from Tower Hamlets Homes and also the Roman Road Trust.
There is also a Friends of Meath Gardens Support Group, that has a page on Facebook. Most of those voluntary organisations rely on support from volunteers.
Much discussion was held around the Chest Hospital development, whereby the new consultation round ends on 28. June 2018.
Concerns were raised that the longer the site stays undeveloped the more it falls into decay and that is not good for our neighbourhood. Residents can make a case for or against support of the new housing development from Crest Nicholson on the current Tower Hamlets Planning Application website.
There are many submissions on this development including
Please look at the building plans and consider the full effects of the site staying vacant for a prolonged period of time. It cannot support our community if the site stays vacant for years.

New plans discussion meeting on Tuesday, 12th. December 2017 @ 19:00 hours.
Chris Keys has submitted the following invite to residents via Change org.
The developers have now submitted a new set of plans for the chest hospital. initial reports indicate that the developers have ignored the main concern of local residents (the height of the new buildings) and have actually increased the height of the tallest tower at the Bonner Bridge end of the site.
Due to concerns about the accessability of the first set of plans and about the biased PR events the developers have staged we will be holding a drop in session at the glasshouse This Tuesday the 12th from 19:00 – 21:00. Where the submitted plans will be available to view.
Council Officers Gareth Gwynne and Simon Westmorland have agreed to attend in order to answer questions that you may have in relation to the proposals. They will not be there to present the proposals but rather they would be on hand to answer queries you may have in understanding the application documents.
It is also important to bear in mind that they will not be able to answer questions about the Council’s opinion/recommendation for the application given that it would not be proper for them to do so prior to the close of the consultation period. The purpose of their attendance would be to answer queries in relation to the specifics of the proposals, eg number/type of units, height of buildings etc. Please also be aware that this would not be the forum to formally present any objections you may have, this should be done through written representations to the Council as is the usual process.
We encourage anyone with an interest in this matter to come and see the plans for yourselves rather than relying on the biased accounts presented elsewhere by the developers.
