SAVE THE SUTTON ESTATE
Affinity Sutton’s plans for redevelopment of the estate will be considered by the Planning Committee of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea
When: TUESDAY, 15 NOVEMBER, at 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.
Where: Small Hall, RBKC Town Hall, Hornton Street, W8 7NX
Affinity Sutton claim that they won’t have enough money to replace all the social housing floor space without building flats and houses for private owners. The Council officers, having examined Affinity Sutton’s figures, say that that is rubbish. In their words,
1. The proposal fails to demonstrate that the maximum amount of affordable housing is being provided and the proposals would result in a net loss of social rented floorspace
2. The proposals are of insufficient high design quality and would not positively contribute to the surrounding townscape
3. There are no agreed s106 obligations to secure affordable housing and appropriate infrastructure required to make the development acceptable’.
It will be up to the Councillors on the Committee to make their decision based on the officers’ report. Because this is so important to residents on the estate, we have arranged transport to the Town Hall on Tuesday evening so that supporters of the campaign to Save the Estate can demonstrate that they agree with the report. A coach will leave from opposite Tom’s kitchen on Cale Street at 5.15 on Tuesday evening.
