We have been heavily involved in the reaction to Broomleigh Housing Association’s (BHA) plans to redevelop the sheltered flats in Bourne Vale. BHA is seeking ultimately to demolish the flats and build a mixed residential development.
However, the initial stages of their consultation have caused much worry among existing residents and their relatives. At the time of writing, we have held meetings with residents, BHA and the Council’s housing officers to examine Broomleigh’s justification for their plans and to clarify their timescale. We share the common view view among residents that Broomleigh have not made the case for the closure of the flats.
Today saw Bob Neill M.P. visit the flats and see for himself the good sized accomodation and hear from residents directly. Bob has promised to take the issue up, alongside ourselves, with Broomleigh and their parent organisation, Affinity Sutton.
