All hands to the pump required. Developers are going mad and planning loads of tower blocks in areas in SE1. If anybody lives in or near Borough Road
, there is a fifteen storey block of flats planned to be built, which is totally out of everything to do with what the street stands for and has always been. The application ref with Southwark Planning is 04-AP-0390, so if any of you out there are against this, please get your objections in. There are a few groups opposing this - one of these is the St Georges Circus Group, which is a conservation group and they have already done a marvellous job in opposing this, but more hands are required nearer to the development area.
This does not directly affect either us or the St Georges Circus Group, but we are proud and passionate about our area and all who feel the same should unite and fight.
Please feel free to contact me - I have information given to me by the St Georges Circus Group - you can also access the application details on the London Borough of Southwark Web Site.
Let's stop these people trying to turn our area into a New York style city with no sky in sight.
