It seems that Ufford Street
will really suffer from traffic servicing the new block of flats doing U turns. Not just during the build, but forever after. I hadn't realised when I went to the last presentation that the 'roads' to both the left and right of the college will open up onto The Cut
and down the side of EV). The 'side street' near EV was proposed as a public footpath, but I have a feeling it may eventually give access to traffic servicing the new block of flats. I went to the meeting to find out more about the block of flats but Balfour Beatty has nothing to do with this and were only representing the college and as I had been to the presentation a couple of years ago, I didn't really learn much. I think residents in Lambeth who live near the site of the new block of flats will need to keep their eye on the ball regarding access for traffic. I spoke to Balfour Beatty about processing of waste on site as this was the biggest noise this summer. It seems that all sites are required to use as much waste as possible. I wanted to know if there was any ruling about whether this should be done off-site in a residential area and he suggested this be brought up with the planning department. I asked because I am concerned about the demolition of the buildings to make way for the Barratts Tower at St Georges Circus. I will write to the council and find out if the waste is going to be processed on site.
