Hi, I'm trying to look at the elephant and castle regeneration site but it appears to be down (at least for me). Anyone able to get to it? I believe its elephantandcastle.org.uk

The domain is currently suspended:

It was due for renewal in February.

Thanks James. Wonder if that means there's some bad news afoot... Or maybe the planning dept hasnt planned...

Hardly bodes well for the re-development if they can't even manage to remember to renew a domain name!

Now a 5 domain registration which lapsed for a few days may be a trivial matter in the context of the millions and billions at stake at E&C, but it was disappointing that Cllr Noblet gave the impression that it never happened in answer to this question tabled by Cllr Martin Seaton at yesterday's council assembly.

Cllr Martin Seaton (Lab): It appears that Southwark failed to renew its registration of the website designed to provide information to local residents and others about the Elephant and Castle regeneration (www.elephantandcastle.org.uk), meaning that it ceased to exist in February. What does say about the council's commitment to keeping the public informed about this regeneration?

Cllr Paul Noblet (Lib Dem - executive member for regeneration): Councillor Seaton has been misinformed as a quick web search would show. The website he mentioned is up and running.

Unfortunatley its the kind of mis-truth (to be polite) that all politicians seem hell bent on serving up these days.

Do you think someone somewhere will try to be honest at some point, take the risk of telling it how it really is, and perhaps, just perhaps the electorate might respect that and actually vote for them?

Hmm, is worrying that it either resorts to lies or just being misinformed. Neither good for people managing the biggest regeneration in Europe...

I suppose this is as close as I'll get to a Watergate scandal...
