There will be a public meeting to discuss plans to regenerate the Britwell/Northborough
area of Slough on Wednesday 22nd February at the Britwell Community centre,
starting at 7.00 pm.
When plans for the Britwell/Kennedy Park regeneration
project were first put forward in 2003, Independant councillors quickly
acted to make sure these
plans did not go ahead as they did not want anything built on Kennedy Park.
That project in particular would have meant a community sports hall for
which the entire town would have been proud of.
Instead, there are now a lack of sports and community centres for the
public to use thanks to these councillors.
New plans include regeneration of the Britwell & Northborough areas -
without the football club.
The new plans would mean more houses, no community centre, no sports
stadium, no public football facilities. The plans are to build on a larger
part of Kennedy Park than if the original plans had gone ahead. As
additional playgrounds and recreational areas are also to be built on, this
seems to be a much worse option than the original scheme, which highlights
the cynical attitude of some local councillors towards the club.
RebelsOnline urges all Slough Town FC fans to attend this meeting and
make their views heard.
