A community website to gather feelings and ideas about the potential demolition of Jubilee Sports Centre.
The Borough's policy is:- to put 30% of new housing to those on the Housing List- to promote a healthy balance in housing types and choiceIf Westminster was building housing for those on the waiting list in Belgravia and Mayfair, I would be happy to accept houses for millionaires in Queens Park!
Neither WCC nor Willmott Dixon will tell us what profit is involved, despite this land belonging to us! So, a couple of us worked out cost/profit, based on current property prices and what we know of building costs and can show all workings out if anyone interested. Conservatively the OVERALL PROFIT of Moberly/Jubilee redevelopment for WILLMOTT DIXON (not including x12 'Affordable Homes' at Jubilee) = £52.55 million This is after all building costs.
The Jubilee pool is often busy. If Westminster Council is saying there will be 60% more use of a new sports centre at the Moberly, and the new pool is going to be the same size as the current pool at the Jubilee - doesn't that mean it will be nightmarishly full? What's the point of a swanky new pool if it's so busy you can't move?
