We have started this fundraiser to help us with the huge financial costs of fighting the many battles (some of which are shown in the pictures above) to improve and preserve the environment for those of us who live in eastern Riverside area (i.e. eastern Riverside itself, Stanley Road, Oyster Row, Cheddars Lane, Garlic Row and Newmarket Road). Over the last few years our small group of residents have invested literally thousands of man hours, but also many thousands of pounds of their own, to bring about much needed change and fight emerging threats to our community. The costs result from the many professional services, meetings and thousands of flyers/posters/placards that we have had to organise over the years. A few of the big issues that we have addressed successfully are outlined below:
- Cheddars Lane student flats development – employed photographers and consultants and successfully lobbied for reduction in building height of otherwise huge and imposing housing blocks
- HGVs – lobbied Council for improvements to chaotic HGV issues which have been funded and are awaiting implementation
- Mercer’s Row Estate land use protection – secured protection of Mercer’s Row area for employment use only, preventing negative consequences of high density redevelopment on local roads
We’re reaching out to the local community to help us with the costs of these efforts, however large or small your help is HUGELY appreciated. The total spend comes to just under £7000, hence that has become our target. We’d like to thank you once again; collectively your donation will make a massive difference!
