By my calculations (not necessarily to be relied on) anyone wishing to comment on the application for planning permission for 'Tabard Square', Borough SE1 (formerly Long Lane
Studios) needs to do so in the next day or two.
For those unaware of the proposal it is for residential and commercial property to be built in the area bordered by Tabard Street
, Long Lane
and Sterry Street
. It includes a proposed 26 storey tower on the Long Lane
boundary and various other buidings of around nine storeys around the perimeter of the development.
By way of comparison Guys Hospital is 29 storeys high, Tabard Gardens
Estate is predominantly four storeys and the houses that back onto Sterry Street
are two storeys tall.
There's more information and a scale model at the John Harvard library on Borough High Street
if you're interested.
If you have any comments, for or against, then send them to: Head of Planning, Southwark Planning, Portland Street, London SE17 2ES quoting reference number 9900118.
