Kingston Liberal Democrats have been engaging with an organisation called "Create Streets" to help develop a scheme at Cocks Crescent in New Malden that will be fit for the whole community.
Create Streets is expert at working with local authorities to produce community-led regeneration.
Last week local Councillors met with the CEO of Create Streets where they discussed:
- The need for a replacement for Malden Centre that should include at least the same level of provision as is provided currently.
- The requirement for good levels of affordable housing.
- The possibility of a Community Arts Centre.
Local Lib Dem Councillor, Mark Durrant, added, “Discussions with Create Streets were extremely beneficial, and the organisation was sympathetic to a lot of what we proposed.”
“Create Streets will be reporting back its proposal to us next month. We will update you as soon as we have more.”
