Opposition: Pulling down flats will change the whole place
Socialdemokraterna are critical of a proposal from Moderaterna, Centern and Kristdemokraterna (the so-called clover-leaf group), to pull down 111 flats in the Ringen quarter in Hanaskog.
”If they'd done it in Broby, there would have been an outcry”Anders Bengtsson (S)
– If they'd done it in Broby, there would have been an outcry. Now they want to demolish a whole block in an area of social deprivation, says Anders Bengtsson, (S), leader of the opposition in Östra Göinge.
What he is most critical of is that there have been no discussions about the demolition.
The clover-leaf group has decided it is to be pulled down. The least you can do is meet residents and speak to people living here, he says.
– 60 per cent of pupils in the school live here. This is going to change the whole community. They haven't made that analysis.
”It might be in Glimåkra or in Sibbhult. But I want to live in Hanaskog”Ibrahim Al Hamo
Ibrahim Al Hamo also wants to stay where he is. It's not too far for him to travel to work, and the children attend Kviinge school. Göingehem has said they will arrange alternative housing.
– It might be in Glimåkra or in Sibbhult. But I want to live in Hanaskog, he says.
Ready to start pulling down 111 flats
The municipal council in Östra Göinge decided at its meeting on 23rd June to demolish the 111 flats over the next five years.
Socialdemokraterna. Vänsterpartiet and Mitt Göinge made a reservation against the decision.
