Residents groups are divided over the plans with many throwing doubt on the Council's claims to be creating new social housing which will be affordable to key public sector workers and those aiming for a first foot on the property ladder. Residents point out that many of the homes claimed as "social" will in fact merely be existing social tenants being relocated, while others from the Kensington side have warned that their homes, including that of the Prime Minister, will be overshadowed by enourmous retail buildings. But both agree that this will act as a major stimulus for jobs, which can't be a bad thing.
Either way residents can judge for themselves on the following dates:
- Friday 8th July - next to Habitat in Westfield 2 - 8pm
- Saturday 9th July - next to Habitiat in Westfield 11 - 5pm
- Monday 11th July - Village Hall Bulwer Street 12 - 6pm
