While I believe very strongly that we need more affordable housing across the UK, the disruption being caused to my family and our neighbours by this development is outrageous. We live quite literally across the road from this wonderful building (my mother also worked there) and have done so for 30 years.

No sooner had the bulldozers set up that our entire houses were covered in a thick, yellow dust that has left a good number of us really unwell. Two young children are having breathing difficulties, my mother as well. A few of us having not stopped coughing in 6 weeks and despite the best efforts of the builders' hose-down exercise, we are all fearful that we are breathing in and living in the middle of something we should not be.

This needs to be addressed.
