Just been alerted to this article. Someone could take the impression that the site has actually been formally discussed since the Government decided that this application was not as high a priority for them as others.
The irony of the article stating that I have raised the prospect of flats on this site could not be under-estimated. The thought of flats on this site is something I find very hard to stomach.
Whilst I maintain that this site was brilliant in terms of raising the profile of skills training, one of the other reasons I liked the use of a Skills Centre here is that it avoided the risk of more flats.
Maybe some who were critical of me previously now realise why the decision to forego a capital receipt on this site was a brave and good decision? A big commitment to the people of Feltham.
I have serious doubts that the site is worth £5 million as claimed in the article.
