Whitefields Regeneration and Housing issues.

Whitefields School Claremont road London NW2 1TR is now booked for local housing meeting 6:30 – 9:00pm 30/6/15
A meeting has been called on behalf of the local and surrounding community to help deal with the Regeneration project and Housing issues.
 
Over 100 residents have signed and sent in Objections to the Developers and Barnet councils Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO). This will mean a Public Inquiry will take place, this will allow you the resident to voice your opinions.
 
To make sure your views are not just heard but also listened to you have to go through a specific procedure.
 
The regeneration project will affect everyone, their homes, their health, their financial future.
If the CPO is agreed by the secretary of state it means that all home owners will only be able to sell their homes to one buyer and their buying price can come down to one person’s perception of what that person decides is a fair price. Your opinion will not count.
 
Secure council tenants could lose their security and can be forced to move where the council and the developer wants the tenants to move to not where the tenants would like to move to. Putting at risk your secure tenancy.  
 
Unsecured and housing association tenants could have a very uncertain future.
 
All the above is based on actual events that have already happened to other homeowners and tenants on other regeneration estates in Barnet.
 
This meeting will give you the resident to gain information to help you make your own. A decision that could well affect the rest of your life
