Photo taken from earlier in the week showing the impact the shadows from the new development will have on the park.
The large shadow on the tennis court is cast by a building which is exactly the same height of the proposed new development. If the new block is built, it will mean that the majority of the sunny green space between the tennis courts and Bermondsey St, including the public benches, will be cast into permanent shadow. The area to the left of the tennis court in the photo never receives any direct sunlight and is therefore never used by the community. It will be a real shame if we relegate the most popular area of the park to the same fate.
Southwark's consultation is open to the 29th March for anyone wanting to register an objection. Ref 17/AP/0469
