Do any SE1'ers have reservations about the huge redevelopment of over 100 apartments including a 9-storey tower proposed for the 'Stage Electrics' site on Long Lane
? (Application number 13/AP/4586)
I'm wondering if anyone shares my reservations about the scale of this development especially:
a) building a 9-storey tower in close proximity to The Leathermarket and the Bermondsey Street
conservation area encouraging height-creep in the area and repeating the mistake of Antoine Heights.
b) Spoiling the street-scape and special character of the Eastern end of Long Lane
which features various buildings all of approximately the same height.
