A recent meeting of the PEMBA Residents Association agreed that enough is enough now with the St Edmund's Hospital Site. It is time the Borough took it on for development with a CPO.
The reasons for this are:-
The site has been derelict for too long
The site is deteorating day by day
The site is an eyesore and blot on the landscape in a residential area
The inside of the buildings and the outside perimeter represents a major health and safety risk
The Borough has to bear the cost of the maintenance of the buildings and the security of the site
The site is being used by homeless, possibly criminalised gangs, and the detritus of drug use and human excrement are present in the buildings
The planning application has been delayed for one reason and then another
The developers show no sign of wanting to develop the site
The people of the town deserve better.
