|We are campaigning for a community facility|
here like a cafe
Southampton Independents has been listening to residents here, like we do everywhere.
We have been campaigning for a community facility here, but the Labour-run Council has been letting the developers get away with not providing one. Currently there is only a Tesco Express.
No community facility.
So we were dismayed when Domino's recently submitted a planning application for the vacant commercial premises.
They had already had one turned down in 2016, which we worked with residents to oppose.
We listened to residents' concerns and we acted on their concerns.
Both Denise Wyatt and Councillor Andrew Pope objected to the application. We encouraged residents to object to it, and to work with us.
The application by Domino's was refused.
Denise Wyatt, Council Candidate for this area as well as the whole of the Redbridge Ward, says:
Redbridge Council Candidate for Southampton Independents
"We were formed to listen to residents and to act for residents, because we are residents too.
Together, residents can shape their area and stop the wrong proposals like this.
It was brilliant to work with residents on this. They objected and we informed and supported them.
We want to see a proper community facility here, like a GP surgery or a cafe.
There is already a Domino's in Shirley, on the main road and not in a residential area. The parking issues around the Tesco Express are already seriously impacting on residents. The Domino's would have had too many negative impacts on residents here.
What would you like to see here instead of Domino's?
Please vote for me in the Council elections on 3rd May."
