Petition Tag - flats
The area of land at between Tyson Road and Honor Oak Rd in Forest Hill should not be developed into flats. We think that this wild area is a valuable area of natural beauty and important for Forest Hill in retaining it’s biodiversity.
This open green space is extensively wooded and has many old trees under preservation orders. This area is one of the oldest and most established green sites in Honor Oak as it was once a Georgian garden. To retain the character and identity of Forest Hill, we are strongly opposed to the devastation of this area, which as an open space enhances the standard of living of residents in the area, not to mention the many schools and resident families surrounding the site.
We have seen the proposed plans and architect’s model of the flats and in my opinion, the development is unnecessarily large, over-dense and ambitious for the size of the site. This can only lead to a feeling of over-cramped living conditions in the local area. The existence of a 77 space car park will generate traffic problems in an already busy area, not to mention an increase of cars in a dangerous road with two schools.
The scale of the development is completely inappropriate for the area: the height of the buildings will completely compromise residents’ privacy and disrupt many currently beautiful views of Victorian and Georgian buildings and trees. The nature of the development is such that we feel it will cause total disruption in the area, not only to residents, but more importantly to the abundant nature in this spot.
Please object to the Council by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference 08/70207 in the subject line, and include your name and address.

No 1 Manor Mount wishes to demolish the back and side of a Victorian dwelling and build a two story extension to the back and a two storey extension to the side to turn a family home into a large block of flats.
This will lie directly beside No 1 1/2 Manor Mount a small Victorian Coach House and cause considerable impact, not only to this house but to the surrounding properties.
Residents of the deck access flats in Pollokshields are calling for them to be demolished to make way for brand new housing.
A recent report published as part of the GoWell health study found that one in three families in the flats have at least one family member who suffers from asthma.
Residents complain that the flats are damp, cramped, hard to heat and have poor noise insulation.
Southside Housing Association and Glasgow Housing Association are working together to create a plan to demolish the flats to make way for new homes.
Glasgow City Council has the power to fill the last piece of the funding jigsaw to make the development happen.
We hope you will support residents in their campaign.

A block of 10 flats has been placed in a small area in Harver road. This block was unsafe to begin with as it was too close to the neighbouring house next door.
This became clear when the place caught fire and has now ruined the care home next door and all their possessions.
We, as residents of Harvey road, Pauncefote road and Colevile road, do not want these flats rebuilt under any circumstances.

In common with towns across the UK the Town of Lymington is suffering from a rash of overdevelopment.
In the name of supposedly "Saving the Green Belt" developers are being encouraged by the UK Government to build at ever higher densities in the centre of towns.
This process has now gathered enormous momentum and the town now has numerous building sites as developers knock down good family houses to build block of retirement flats and second homes.
Unless the local council the New Forest District Council starts standing up to the developers and starts saying NO then the town as we know it will be lost for ever.
This Petition is being brought forward because of Anti-Social Behaviour of some elderly people living in "Old Folks" Flats in our community. Some of us have lived here for over 20 years with no problems. Last year, a new tenant was moved into the "flats" and since then there has been verbal abuse and pictures being taken of children playing outside their homes, threatening gestures with a cane, verbal abuse to anyone with a dog, and property damage to a vehicle.
Another tenant was moved in recently and same anti-social behaviour is taken place, including threatening a dog with an axe in the prescence of children. There is also a "nun" who routinely calls the "guards" (police)if she hears children playing outside.
Now the reason these flats were built within a community is so the elderly can feel like they are in a community with families, and they are not sent to nursing homes to feel instituionalized or forgotten. These people forget that if children are outside playing, then the likelihood of them being robbed (which has happened on more than one occassion when there were no children or a dog outside)is decreased.
It seems that these elderly people who have a problem with children, people and animals should be institutionalized because they are a threat to themselves as well as the community.
