Over the next 10 years our neighbourhood will be transformed by new developments on and around the Mount Pleasant site. Â It could be a great opportunity to create high quality housing and amenities that help us to be a thriving and diverse community. Â Unfortunately, the current plans for the post office site, proposed by the Royal Mail Group are for poorly designed, high density housing with little or no affordable property. Â Worse still they are trying to bypass any proper consultation by referring their plans directly to Boris Johnson. Â He will decide tomorrow at 4pm whether to call it in, over-riding the local councils’ planning committees.
Please take a look at these two excellent videos, created by the Mount Pleasant Forum. Â If they concern you too, please voice your opposition by contacting your local council or the press!
