Site UVW Call-in update

Progressing as planned with the review date set for 9-11th Sept 2015.

Charles Church / Persimmon Homes - Site Area T

Charles Church/Persimmon Homes are supporting the Residents Association’s proposals for more diverse housing in area UVW as per the original Ravenswood Plan which promoted a mixed development of 35% social housing.

Downham Boulevard SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System)

All around Ravenswood there are green areas that act as SUDS.
Rainwater/surface water is collected here rather than going into Anglian Water’s drains. 
Every household on Ravenswood should receive an annual rebate of £25 from Anglian Water because of this unique eco-system. 
If you’re not receiving this please contact Anglian Water.  SUDS areas are maintained by the Council to support local wildlife.

Unfortunately, some people abuse these areas and they become unsightly, as is the case on the SUDS area separating Downham Boulevard from the school which is being eroded by cyclists riding down the centre.  Together with the Council we’re looking at ways to ‘design-out’ this problem and ensure that cyclists use the intended cycle paths. 

Erosion of the Tump

Steps are being proposed to formalise access to the ‘steep side’ of the Tump to prevent further erosion.

South East Area Committee

This is where we can learn about what’s going on in our area. It is a meeting of local councillors at which we can ask questions.
The local police and council officers often attend to present issues and take questions.
It can be really interesting – but it’s up to us to show interest and open up dialogue with our elected representatives.
The committee is a key part of the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement – remember it takes two to involve !

Details of the next meeting can be found on the IBC site here;-
