PLEASE HELP SAVE OUR HOMES IN MONTREAL SQUARE, CAMBRIDGE, UK.

MANY RESIDENTS HAVE LIVED IN THE SQUARE FOR OVER 30 YEARS ! 

RESIDENTS HAVE SPENT A LOT OF THEIR OWN MONEY AND TIME CREATING A HOME. WE ALL EITHER WORK OR ARE RETIRED. WE HAVE A FANTASTIC COMMUNITY SPIRIT WHICH IS A PRIVILEGE THESE DAYS WITH ALL THESE NEW BUILDS AND THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT BECOMES LOST.

WE LOVE THE AREA WE LIVE IN AND FEEL SAFE. SOME OF THE OLDER RESIDENTS HAVE GENUINE AND GRAVE CONCERNS THEY WILL NOT COPE WITH ALL THE DISRUPTION AND UPHEAVAL OF A NEW BUILD. SOME ARE ALREADY SUFFERING HEATLH ISSUSES BECASUE OF IT.

PRESENTLY THERE ARE 18 HOMES IN THE SQUARE. CHS HOUSING SOCIETY CLAIM THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE SOCIAL HOMES. ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE NOT YET GIVEN A NUMBER OF UNITS THEY HAVE SUGGESTED 2,3,4 BEDROOMED HOUSES AND A BLOCK OF FLATS . THEREFORE THE AMOUNT OF UNITS WILL BE SUBSTANTIALLY MORE BUT ALSO THE DENSITY OF PEOPLE LIVING THERE WOULD BE CONSIDERABLY INCREASED. THEY ALSO SUGGESTED SOME WOULD BE SHARED OWNERSHIP AND SOME FOR SALE .....SO HOW MANY ACTUAL SOCIAL HOMES TO RENT ?????? CHS HAVE CLAIMED THIS PROPOSAL IS NOT FOR PROFIT. 

WE HAVE A LOVELY GREEN WITH WELL ESTABLISHED TREES AND WILDLIFE.

PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE EVEN THE REMOTEST INCLINATION OF TRYING TO SAVE SOME OF THE HISTORY OF CAMBRIDGE AND PEOLPLES HOMES SIGN THIS PETITION! 

ITS SUCH A SHAME OUR CITY IS BEING RUINED BY GROTESQUE AND SHODDY NEW BUILDS. 

IT TAKES TIME TO ESTABLISH A HOME AND WE WANT TO SAVE OURS !
