Housing association L&Q have sensationally declined to face the residents at a public meeting called by the council. The meeting will be explaining to the residents L&Q plans and it is quite unbelievable that the tax payer funded organisation will not face the borough. How can anybody support an organisation that won’t explain its own plans to residents?
L&Q claim that they would be open and transparent, but words are cheap from this disgraceful organisation.
Saveourstow has already maintained L&Q have hid from the residents and this proves that very point. Nobody in the Borough supports L&Q only the leader of the council who is still protecting and hiding the viability figure for the site that would show L&Q losing the tax payer 26 million on the site. It is a public disgrace that the Labour council should withhold from tax payers the potential losses that would be incurred if L&Q ever got planning permission – should any councillor ignore the residents in favour of Chris Robins stronghold views in helping L&Q then they will be dishonouring the Borough and its residents and they should be held to account by the electorate.
We now demand clear and open transparency from the council and a full investigation into allegations that the council encouraged L&Q to buy the site and inappropriate actions of certain councillors and planners.
