Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing and Countryside Properties have written to local residents today to advise them demolition works will shortly be starting at Poynders Parade and Clarence Crescent. The letter outlines the arrangements for the demolition and subsequent construction. Work will start on-site at 8am each day, Monday to Saturday.
MTVH and Countryside have pledged to keep disruption to a minimum but have provided contact details should residents need to get in touch or complain. We would also encourage residents to get in touch with us the councillors if there are issues we can raise with Metropolitan, Countryside or Lambeth Council.
The letter is reproduced below in image and text formats.
This morning our councillors Verity McGivern and Martin Tiedemann were out talking to bus users in Clapham Park about the proposed Tory bus cuts that would mean the 45 bus completely withdrawn!
As well as removing the crucial 45 that connects Clapham Park to Brixton, King’s College Hospital and Elephant & Castle, the proposals also further reduce capacity down Brixton Hill, making it harder for our residents to get a bus to Brixton.
We oppose any cuts to bus services, which are relied upon by London’s most marginalised and all of us facing increased costs. But buses are essential here – the part of Lambeth furthest away from any tube or train station. Check out the map, with most of Clapham Park in the white area >1km from a station. And that’s before hundreds of new homes are built on the Clapham Park Estate.
Clapham Park needs buses more than anywhere else!
Clapham Park also has a large Latin American community. Cutting the 45 means no direct link for our residents to the Latinx businesses at Elephant & Castle. ¡Salvemos el autobus 45!
