St Clements events this week, Thursday and Saturday

St Clements on Mile End Road is due for development…

Yeah and what’s new about that? We have developments on every street corner!!!!

Well, the difference is that part of the development will be a Community Land Trust - which in essence means there will betruly affordable homes for sale - and resident involvement. And who can resist that?

There is a lot going on at the moment in the pre-pre stages of the development - and this Thursday and Saturday residents are invited to get directly involved at two community planning events - if you aren’t already?! (Mark and I have been involved the last couple of years and got elected for the East London Community Land Trust board in August).

The events will be held on the main road 2 minutes away from St Clements and there will be tours of the site as well.

Thursday 29 November 
  • 10am - 3pm 
  • AND 6:30pm - 8pm
Saturday 1 December 2012 10am - 4pm

Read on - invitation message from the ELCLT:
"You are invited to the St Clement's Hospital Community Planning Workshops and Exhibition to help plan a new vision for the future of the site and its relationship to the neighbouring areas.Last year, the Mayor of London decided to establish London's first ever Community Land Trust (CLT) on the St Clement's Hospital site. Appointed developers, Galliford Try, and their architects, John Thompson & Partners (JTP), are now working closely with East London CLT to fully integrate the local community's previous design ideas from workshops held last year. As part of this, a series of further workshops will be held over two days, through which local people can help co-create a new vision for the site.

What to expect at the Community Planning Workshops:

You will have the opportunity to view an exhibition on the background to the regeneration of St Clement's and take part in workshops, walkabouts and hands-on planning groups to consider key issues such as landscape design, sustainability, connectivity and interim uses. This event is an opportunity to share local knowledge and ideas and contribute to the emerging vision for the site. Pop in for a short while, a few hours or stay for the entire time if you can. Team members will be on hand to explain what's happening."
