Wow Tak, they are great pictures, can you see that from TAK Towers! is the netting/scaffolding/ still up incidentally?
Yes it is Jan - Luckily I live at the top.
Despite Southwark Council
s Press release on 10th April 2014 stating scaffolding would be down by end of May 2014, at present it's only been removed to about the 10th, maybe 8th floor max. I would guess it's going to take at least another two months until the flats on the lower floors get their daylight and use of balconies back.
My heart really goes out to those residents, after all they have been behind scaffolding since 19th January 2012 (that's 2 1/2 years!) and are still counting.
I really wish Southwark Council
would not release such silly press releases, even more so if they cannot even adhere to what they promise. Southwark really seems to be all spin but no substance from what I have been experiencing in last few years. I find this very worrying indeed.
