|With Sol Campbell|
In fact, of all the councillors, Coleridge is one who takes the trouble to meet up with troubled residents and hear what they have to say.
So, it was with some relief, that the Dame read his concluding comments at the end of the debate on the future of the Odeon.
"We might make it an ACV if it meets that criteria and that will have to be really carefully considered over the next 5 days. It must be done by the end of this month.
Looking very carefully at all the evidence that we have and all the evidence to be collected and to weigh it up to make the
right decision I cannot second guess the final decision because that will have to be done in the proper manner weighing up everything and writing
a proper report on it”
It is good that Tim is in listening mode and we should all be grateful for that chink of light.
When Daniel Moylan planned to turn Sloane Square into a mini Birmingham Bull Ring it was Tim Coleridge who sided with residents and said NO.
It cost him a great deal of opprobrium and the Mayoralty.
Oh, yes, and the other councillor who sided with residents was our wonderful MP, Victoria Borwick.
Let us all keep fighting to save the Odeon.
It can be done.....
There is 'big money' seriously eyeing the project.
