Mill Road Tesco refused again

14-11-2008 16:01

Refused again
Tesco have LOST their first appeal (and the associated non-determination appeal) for the Mill Road site in Cambridge.

The Inspector concluded:

“I find that both of the realistically available servicing options would pose unacceptable risks to highway safety, which would not be outweighed by benefits or the fallback position. I therefore conclude that both appeals should be dismissed.”

Riseup! Radio #10 - The November Show

06-11-2008 07:51

Annie, one of our regular listeners

Welcome to the penultimate RiseUp!Radio show of 2008. Apologies to those who set their alarms for midnight on 31st of October in anticipation of the November show, a large chunk of our team have bean hit with extravavgant amounts of illness but we feel it will be worth the wait.

Jaques talks to the streets about their takes on our government, Doms takes us into the world of student politics and RiseUp!Radio goes to the Urban Harvest Festival and gets the low down from the windy miller. Also live music from local singer song writer My Crust, also some in studio discussion and Hilary gives us an introduction to his exciting new show ‘Looking into the Crisis’. Topped offed with a rendition of Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech, read live last month in Market square as part of Black History Month. Bon Appétit!

Councillor John Lines’ Homeless Village in Birmingham

05-11-2008 15:59

A protest camp named after Councillor John Lines who’s responsible for the city’s housing, was established last Thursday on derelict land owned by Birmingham City Council. Cllr. Lines has denied there is a homeless problem in Birmingham and also denies there is money available to build new ‘social housing’. The occupied land has been unused for around seven years whilst there are over 30,000 people in the city waiting for housing. The protest is against the Council holding on to land that could be sold at a ‘friendly’ price to Housing associations thereby allowing Housing Associations to draw up to £100m of grants to provide ‘social housing’. “At a cost of £50,000 per unit, the £100m could provide around 2,000 homes” said one of the protesters. They claim the Council’s approach is speculative - by holding onto unused land and buildings with a view to selling them off to the highest commercial bidder.
