We, the undersigned wish to express our serious misgivings about the proposal to establish temporary accomodation for vulnerable people, including children at 3 & 4 Longacre, London Road, Bath.
We have no objection to the fact that vulnerable individuals are already accommodated in the area. However, we are very concern at the chosen location, given the long history of crime, including serious offences, that have been committed in the immediate vicinity of the Longacre Tavern.
Despite assurance from Bath Self Help Housing, we believe that residents at 3 & 4 Longacre could not be effectively protected from those risks.
We call on the Conservatives in charge of housing and community safety, and in charge of property, Councillors Vic Pritchard and Malcolm Hanney, to consider an alternative use for these buildings and to stop any further progression of these plans by Bath Self Help Housing.
