No green spaces will be touched? That’s news to me
Dear Ed, NO GREEN spaces will be touched in Swan Housing’s plans for the Exmouth Estate in Stepney? But they will be landscaped? This is news for me
NO GREEN spaces will be touched in Swan Housing’s plans for the Exmouth Estate in Stepney? But they will be landscaped? This is news for me (East London Advertiser website letters, April 1).
Does that mean we will get some playing areas for the kids of the large families on this estate, or more appropriate trees for the environment?
Now Ms Ferris and Ms Ahern also got me more worried about the number of new people on the estate which is clearly going towards 500 (that’s 90 flats times six). Is that a good number? The facts, while kept very vague) are getting very worrying.
While Mr Durowoju from Swan Housing in his letter also suggests I am enjoying “one of the 250 private gardens,” my joy’ is profoundly spoiled by the “anti social behaviour” of my neighbours above.
I am afraid to sit in my own garden. If the green needs to be built on, I do not think even four-storey is a particularly good solution.
You may also want to watch:
It will do nothing for security as the estate will look more grim. It will also increase anti social behaviour and the number of rodents. Thank you, Swan Housing.
