Our candidate, William Taylor, is a familiar face to many of you. With him we have been active – not just asking for your vote, but listening to your concerns.
In the four weeks to mid-February, William and his supporters met 94 local people and conducted 59 one-to-one interviews across both the Middlesex Street and Aldgate Estates. Last weekend we arranged a meeting for you in the Mumbai Square Restaurant to discuss key priorities. Eleven residents across both estates gave up part of their Saturday to share concerns, identify priorities and begin to take practical action with five members of your local Labour Action Team.
We have heard how you like to live in the City and we’ve heard some of your frustrations too – e.g. lack of facilities for children and young people as well as problems with repairs, security and signage. There are also worries about development proposals for the estate. Here are your top concerns:
Security and Access
- Residents are concerned by the rough-sleepers in the Car Park and the breach in security that has allowed the situation to develop.
- And why has the door entry on Middlesex Street not been fixed?
Management and Representation
- Why do all questions for the estate management have to go through the front desk at the Artizan Street Library?
- And why has it taken so long to sort out the snagging in the new flats and repairs across the estate
- Following the major noise disturbance of “Phase 2” of the Middlesex Street development proposals there is major concern over the implications of the proposed Phase 3.
- Mostly you are worried so little is known about the plans and fear that decisions are being taken without proper consultation
