Residents make their concerns clear at Estate Regeneration meeting

Residents met for an at-times heated discussion on regeneration of the Millbrook and Maybush estates last night (25/1/16).

Plans were presented by the project's Steering Group for development of several sites across the Redbridge and Millbrook wards, including Green Lane, Windermere Avenue, Kendall Avenue & Cuckmere Lane, and Redbridge Hill.

Simon StokesSimon Stokes, resident and Lib Dem campaigner in Redbridge, says;

"I'm not against regeneration of the estate, but the schemes as proposed here are less about regeneration, and more about infill development - adding more than 500 new homes around our community with no apparent thought to how it will effect current residents.

"People are rightly concerned about the impact of any new development in the area. There are too many questions about the lack of school provision, GP surgeries and dentists, inadequate parking, significant loss of green spaces - questions that Cllr McEwing and the panel were unable to answer."

The next consultation meeting is scheduled for July this year. More information can be found on the Southampton City Council website.
