Ladywell Gateway Project. Conserns raised about cycling & road safety and flats being sold offshore Helen Mercer thoughts


Dear All

There are now several issues emerging around the Loampit Vale / Lewisham Gateway development.

1. That the flats are being sold off abroad as speculative ventures

2. That Saxon Crown swimming club has been given privileged access to the new pool, making public swimming there very crowded.
3. That buyers into the development have gained the impression that they would have privileged access to the new pool (this is something that I was told, I haven't seen it reported anywhere.)
4. That the area is becoming an accident black spot with cyclists especially endangered.
5. The issues of Lewisham Bridge and the lack of playground facilities will grow each year as the school increases its intake (it is currently only taking years 7 and 8 at the secondary level). 
These are all problems that the Ladywell Pool campaign and the various Gateway campaigns highlighted at the time.
6. There appears from Richard's recent emails to be some interesting stuff going on around the old Ladywell Leisure Centre.
I think, when we can, when I can, when I have a bit of a breathing space, we need to consider what we can develop around these issues. They are certainly a major talking point in my area...
Just some thoughts anyway.
