Local Liberal Democrats have committed to working with the community on the proposed regeneration of Cambridge Road Estate, and to hold a ballot of residents on the final regeneration deal.
Norbiton’s three Councillors, Emily Davey, Dave Ryder-Mills and Olly Wehring, will ensure that a binding vote for the estate community is held, and that the terms of the ballot will be agreed in consultation with residents.
In addition to a ballot, local Liberal Democrats will:
- ensure that all life-time Council tenants will keep their tenancies;
- work with residents to achieve the amenities that are needed as part of any regeneration;
- work to secure the funding needed to raise the amount of social housing beyond the current target of 653 homes.
Norbiton Councillor Olly Wehring, who lives on the edge of the estate, said: “The Lib Dems will be working with residents to ensure that they achieve the best deal for the community. Once this deal has been decided, the residents will have the final say on whether we go ahead.”
“This is going to be long process, and local Lib Dem Councillors will keep residents updated every step of the way.”
