Please be nice Leabank Square!
I DO NOT want to censor any residents comments again. I DO NOT want any visits from the police again. I DO NOT want any letters from lawyers again. I DO NOT want to have to explain to you why I took your comments down. I would rather you took all your concerns to this meeting.
Tracie has organised another meeting with the suits from the construction companies opposite, along with their Community Relations team - with a packed agenda. You should all shortly be receiving the flyer through your post slot - but in the meantime - here is the email version currently being circulated.
Please - PLEASE do come to the meeting. This is the only way we are going to get things off our chests. Tracie has provided an email address for those of you who can't make the meeting as well - so make sure to send her any queries you may have in your absence. She is a real trooper - she is definitely on our side - and she will definitely get answers for you!
Dear Leabank Square Resident
You may already know that the Leabank Square Community Association has been talking the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) about what they do and how we can work together for a better Leabank Square.
As the ODA are probably our closest neighbour and are responsible for the development of the 2012 site it is important to them that they are good neighbours. There have been some well reported newspaper articles which have left some unanswered questions about the site and it would be good to have the opportunity to talk about these with the people who really know.
We have arranged a meeting for all of us to meet with the ODA, contractors and developers on WEDNESDAY 14TH OCTOBER AT 7.30PM. This will take place at the Hackney Wick Community Centre (The Old Baths). There will be refreshments.
There will be an opportunity to hear the ODA talk about being a good neighbour and covering the recent media articles as well as hear from the Contractors what the next three months will look like for us and them.
There will be an opportunity to discuss some of the issues which we have as residents, see what is being done and planned around these and to discuss opportunities coming up such as family days and other ways which we might be able to improve the square in areas such as the riverbank, gardens, car parking and front gates.
Please do come along and meet people, find out what the future holds for the Square and have your say.
If you are unable to attend, have access issues or would like to be involved without attending, please either call Tracie on 07525923750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look forward to seeing you then.
