HRARA wishes to raise following concerns:
What will happen to places just beyond the boundary which are pretty run down? Will they be improved e.g.Kings Hedges to avoid a hi-tech citadel next to run down areas?
There are few green spaces. Could there be land bought to create parkland running down to the river?
Where will the high rise buildings be built? Number of stories?
What is the provision of coherent infrastructure for cycling, walking and bus priority? Will it be available before the residents move in? Is there any coordination between this site and GCP Milton Road project?
The site will have car free zones thus there is also need for some parking facilities on the edges of the site or underground.
There is a need for a secondary school since the surrounding areas will not have any available spaces for the coming new residents.
Are any nurseries planned for the working staff in the Science park area?
The station and the guided bus stop are on the edge of the residential area but there seem not to be any coordinated plan for joining the Science part with the Residential part or the surrounding areas.
Has the new location for the sewage plant been confirmed or will this cause delays for the residential part?
