Question

In your press release dated 13 December 2016 you outlined "plans to put local people at the heart of estate regeneration in the capital." On 18 July 2017 you visited Cambridge Road Estate in Kingston but did not meet the local residents affected by regeneration plans. Local residents have conducted their own resident engagement and proposed their own plans for new homes. Will you now arrange to meet the residents separately to see their plans and listen to their concerns?

Answer for Kingston visit - Cambridge Road Estate

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I did not visit the Cambridge Road Estate in July.

It is important that Kingston, like all landlords, engages with residents over their ideas for regeneration. My officers, including my Deputy Mayor for Housing, James Murray, will work with Kingston to ensure this is the case.
