An 8 storey tower on that small site was always going to be a no-no and I now expect to see the modified ( but originally intended) plans submitted and accepted by the council, maybe even just nodded through.
No higher than the adjacent social housing thus maintaing the average height of buildings on the street would, in my opinion, be acceptable.
I wonder if Lambeth will apply the same criteria to the redevelopement of the bookshop site on the corner of Waterloo Road
and Baylis Road
. I suspect not especially if they follow Southwark's thinking of Waterloo Road
being a gateway to the two cities.
Having bought two paintings from Llewellyn Alexander's gallery over the years I would hate to see it go anywhere else. It is the classiest shop on the street and adds more than most others in uplifting the character of The Cut
