Feltham Young Offenders’s Institution is to be closed down and an adult gaol built on the same sight. I would take this opportunity to lease this site for the maximum public gain. I would then build prisons and youth offenders institutions in areas of high unemployment. This would be good because property there would be cheaper and it would bring jobs to depressed areas.
I pass disused sites in London every day. On the motorway that leads to Oxford there is a long stretch of boarded up land. The bushes grow wild in there. It has been like this for years. It is a pity to waste ground in a city that badly needs space. The land should be used for some affordable housing but also as a park.
