'Masterplan' Explained..... 19th
the area containing the large buildings always shown in photos
articles trying to justify this scheme. The buildings are, in
places, in a poor state, and should probably never have been
sold. Some are really attractive, and are people's
are the buildings always publicised as 'Rowner', or 'The Rowner
Estate', and have always been focused on as the area to be
for Zone B, (and the area north of Nimrod Drive) have been
carefully hidden over the last 3 to 4 years, so the statement
have spent the last eight months engaging with the residents' is
totally misleading. This is Phase
6, which is unlikely to take place for many years, if at
Zone 'B' is the area containing hundreds of perfectly good homes which, over the years, people have been encouraged to buy, and many have been recently refurbished. Development of this area means the loss of these homes and extensive green spaces. The end result will be homes the present residents cannot afford, homes built without a thought for the environment and, the developers hope, with a large profit. No 'Eco Homes' here.
Note the 'Surestart' building, which was built on an adventure playground. Great for the politicians - not so good for the children.
Plans for the future of the area north of this map, see HERE, are yet to be revealed.
