The "No" Party just keep saying NO!

The Greens - now officially known as the "No" Party around City Hall - are set to oppose the redevelopment of Barrack Street. I am very much in favour of this for two reasons - firstly the site desperately needs regeneration and secondly the cost of bringing these properties up the scratch must be huge. However, the Green Shadow Housing Spokesman, Tom Llewelyn (whom as it happens I have a lot of time for) seems to think that reducing the housing stock is not a good idea. Are the Greens therefore pledging the cash to rennovate these properties - and all run-down council stock to give people a high standard of living? Have they told the Finance Director about this massive financial pledge ... or more importantly the people of Norwich?

Hey sir! I can't believe you have your own blog! I found this by accident. Finally found a source from which to take over the world with uncensored political ranting?:-) I dunno, haven't actually read it yet. Heard about you winning the councillor thing, well done! Next stop, prime minister, eh?

With politically charged memories,

My six sense tells me Greens are backing the wrong horse on this, and misguided. Idealogically Greens are adverse to any redeveloped larger than a garden shed. £4,500 is great compensation that other private sector tenants would not receive from an eviction. 60 energy efficient modern housing association are the replacement with the prospect of solar panels. I can't see Greens problem. Even if money is ploughed into these 45 flats the energy conservations will be poor. With steel framed 1950's windows and flat rooves their are little potential for insulation or double glazing. Sound is a very subjective word from Tom, perhaps he should stick with trees.
