Councillors to investigate social and economic impact of the Shard
Is it not a little late for all of this? Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the Shard and believe it most likely bring prosperity to SE1 without too much adverse impact on the local community.
But asking a local trader for his/her input on the impact on local business at this late stage of development? The bolt on the stable door has rusted and the horse is in Australia by now.
Also, does this type of analysis cost the council anything?
