This Wednesday sees the third meeting of the Roman Road Neighbourhood Forum. 6.30-8.30 PM at the Caxton Hall Community Centre off Malmsbury Road (close to the PDSA Centre).
This was news to the Mile End Old Town Residents Association who were surprised to discover that the boundaries of the forum include the whole of the MEOTRA area.
One resident explains his concerns and urges MEOTRA residents to attend the meeting:
Personally, I have concerns the plan will be too Roman Road-centric and “swallow up” Meotra. Ask yourself: How come I didn’t know the meeting was taking place? But have I got it wrong? Is this a great opportunity to solve some of the ongoing issues in our area, bring a greater sense of community, make it a better place to live and/or work in?
The meeting starts with a presentation explaining the whole “Neighbourhood Plan” concept. I hope to see some of you there and maybe you’d like to join me in The Lord Tredegar after for a beer to let me know what you think. I’m easy to spot – I’ll be the one mentioning Meotra every couple of minutes.
