Accurate assists local residents association

News: September 24th, 2007

ARARA Shop at Queens RoadAccurate Developments have assisted ARARA (The Astbury Road Area Residents Association) in presenting plans for the regeneration of housing façades in the Astbury Road and Colls Road area of SE15.

As part of Accurate’s commitment to the local area in which it operates, Accurate made available one of the retail units (that fronts Queens Road) so that ARARA could present proposals to local residents and provide feedback to Southwark Council.

Whilst the unit was not complete and available for immediate commercial occupancy, Accurate ensured that it fit the purposes of the residents association by providing temporary sections within the unit and enclosing all electricity and pipework to fulfil HSE and public liability requirements. As a result, the unit was made available on a temporary basis and allowed ARARA to engage other local residents with the regeneration scheme to provide input and approval of the plans.

Astbury Road is adjacent to Phase 1 of the Queens Road development (Queens Bridge Mews) so it was an ideal location to host the presentation that took place over two days on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September 2007.

Site Manager at Queens Road, John Nolan, comments:

We were delighted to be asked to assist the local residents association with this endeavour. We have worked closely in the past to ensure ARARA and local residents were aware of our developments. Making information accessible is very important and we thank the hard working committee for inviting us to become involved with this display.

The “regeneration scheme” consists of improvements to the front of buildings by improving brickwork and gates at the front of each property. Four designs have been shortlisted and put forward for consideration. The residents of each road must decide which style of improvements they prefer and pay a small contribution to those improvements with Southwark Council paying the remainder.
