The sign says ‘Residents Only’ but the padlocked gates say all you need to know about Westminster Conservatives’ lack of concern for the local community.
Nik Slingsby, Labour’s candidate in the Marylebone High Street ward by-election, has joined with residents in Luxborough Street who are angry that they will lose the children’s play area, when the Council builds more luxury homes and an underground library.
This is what residents have told us;
“The proposed scheme removes at least one third of our estate and 6 large mature trees. The play area is relegated to a site which the police are unable to supervise and will be a focus of antisocial activity.”
“Marylebone is very dense, and there are already enough on-going developments and building sites. It is becoming a very young area, full of kids, and they will need places where to play!”
“I would like to add my concern to that of other residents on the proposed development of the play area in Luxborough Street, what with the redevelopment of the Chilton Street car park the proposed development of 66 Chiltern Street into residential apartments. We need more open spaces not less”
The forthcoming Marylebone High Street Ward by-election on Thursday 2nd May is your opportunity to vote for Nik Slingsby and to register your opposition to Conservative plans to build luxury homes and an underground library on the Luxborough Street play area.
