My Dear Dame
It has come to my attention via the new Silchester Residents Association website that it is not quite fair play in the "Regeneration Game". You can catch up HERE
We knew that Cllr Rock Feilding-Mellen and co at Hornton St had denied that there were any plans to redevelop the Silchester Estate right up until the letter was sent on July 3rd informing us of their consideration of our estate for their vision of North Kensington.
This was just before the actual executive decision was made on July 16th to examine the possibilities of regenerating Silchester. What we did not know was the contract for the consultancy to 'evaluate' the regen possibilities had been advertised in April, almost 3 months prior to the executive decision being made. It appears it was advertised to members of the council’s framework, so not publicly.
This is especially shocking as at a meeting of the Silchester Residents’ Association I attended where Cllr Rock Feilding-Mellen and Ruth Angel (RBKC head of regeneration) spoke, we were clear that residents would communicate with RBKC in a civilised and organised way, but expected respect and transparency in return.
Shocked of Silchester
