Manor Castle Green Party is keenly interested in the development of Park Hill flats and we wrote to Harry Harpham back in November 2014 about the development and location of shops and the progress of the redevelopment. We were sad to hear of his death this week and offer you our sincere condolances.
Grace Owen Nursery
Local people are frustrated by the slow progress of the redevelopment, the further dereliction of the old blocks and the lack of amenities such as shops that Urban Splash promised us. We are pleased that Grace Owen Nursery has recently moved but there seems to be very little progress other than this and some external landscaping.
We wrote to Urban Splash before Christmas, to ask for meeting when they could bring community groups and local residents up to date with the strategy for the development of the next phases. They said that they would be in discussion with the council and would be able to come to a meeting after Christmas. We wrote to them again after Christmas and they are now saying that this meeting will not be for a “couple of months”.
We feel frustrated with this response and would ask that you could arrange a meeting with yourselves and with Urban Splash , for local community groups and residents.
Manor Castle Green Party would be happy to suggest venues and to do appropriate publicity and liaison with local groups to get this meeting arranged.
