The consultation period over the sale of some of the Crown Estates property has recently ended. Residents now face an anxious wait.
I have been appalled by the way this issue has been handled, and I welcome Frank Dobson’s lead in opposing the sale. The way Crown Estates have conducted the consultation period is nothing short of disgraceful. It has been way too short and the residents were denied the opportunity of a ballot.
I hope that the fantastic grassroots campaign that residents ran will have the desired effect of knocking some sense into the estates management. Housing is a real problem in our community and the sale of any affordable housing would be a disaster.
I hope to see some of you at the ‘Hands Off Our Homes’ show on the 28th April at the Vauxhall tavern.
