Lack of communication from Lewisham
We have repeatedly asked Lewisham to send out an update letter about what’s going on to all residents, businesses, freeholders to update us all. We haven’t received anything yet although we were told three months ago we would receive some information at the beginning of January!
We are on Deptford Market with a mini stall from 12-2pm with other local housing campaigns.
Sadiq Khan is proposing all estates undergoing regeneration who receive GLA funding should be balloted before demolition. There is currently a consultation on this by the mayor – the Mayors draft guidelines exclude non resident freeholders, businesses, private tenants from a vote, we are challenging this in our response to the consultation as the Achilles street area is made up of a mix of tenures.https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/consultation-on-a-new-funding-condition-requiring-resident-ballots-in-estate-regeneration-schemes.pdf
