CONSIDER WHO GETS HOMES
WITH the completion of housing at 31 Stratton Street, Hamilton Hill, I have concerns relating to the allocation of that housing due to its proximity to retained housing on Starling Street, Stratton Street and Carter Street.
The tasteful selection of exterior finishes and the inclusion of artwork has made a positive contribution to the street and amenity of the neighbourhood. However, my concerns are around the potential for ghettoisation and an increase in crime and anti-social behaviour that may result from the allocation of these homes.
I only hope that the housing authority carefully considers the allocation of housing at 31 Stratton Street and the impact of that allocation on the Hamilton Hill community. DAVID GOODALL Hamilton Hill
