Landlord to transform blot on the landscape
Published by Roisin Rowley-Smith for Riverside in Communities and also in Environment, Housing
Locals are invited to have their say about the future of an unused area of land in the Henniker Road conservation area in Ipswich.
Social landlord, Riverside, which has properties in the area, has already invested £7,000 into clearing the former blot on the landscape, to prepare for a makeover, based on residents views on how the land should be used.
Riverside is holding an event on Thursday 16th February from 10am until 3pm, for people to come along and have their say over a cup of tea or hot soup.
Community involvement officer, Wendy Mason said: “We’ve already spent time clearing the area, which was used for fly tipping, and have put up fencing. Now we are planning our next steps and really want ideas from residents who would use the space.”
Riverside is working with Groundwork to develop the land and will be busy clearing a path through the wooded area. Those interested in having their say about the future of the area are invited to join others at a marquee at Henniker Road on Thursday 16th February from 10am until 3pm.
