Doubt Southwark are putting in £35m - seems far too generous! But then I cannot believe that 20 large sites with hundreds of homes can be built for £35m either - when there's £1m going into a garden.
'spearheading a £ 35 million regeneration of the area, which involves building 2,000 new homes, retail and community facilities, as well as commercial space for small businesses. Twenty development sites have been earmarked, 13 of which are already under way.'
Perhaps £35m is the value of the land, which Southwark claims to be 'ploughing' back into the area following sale of the land.
Inspired by this article, I had a bit of a poke around the 'Spa' area yesterday. I see there are a couple of pikeys living in caravans at the South end of the Spa Park (actually in SE16, sorry); with luck they're just builders.
And a 3 bed Queen Anne house on Grange Walk
for sale for a cool £595k, and far more stripped pine than is entirely tasteful! (Daniel Cobb)
TLMJJ - must you post such nonsense at 3am... what do you mean by a google ad?
