later in the day those shadows get further - well past the middle of the tennis court - pretty easy to see how the development would completely plunge the majority of the park into shadow.. just move the height of those shadows over to the proposed development's boundary - and voila! a park in darkness!

also all the trees will have to go on the south side where the development is - aside from the fact they will butt right up against the new apartment windows they will also stop receiving any direct sunlight pretty much all year round as a result..

but hey who needs a park anyway? sunlight is MASSIVELY over rated. as are trees. I'd much rather have seven or so more incredibly small rental apartments than a park everyone in the area can actually spend time in and enjoy.

and yes southwark consultation goes on till 29th March..

Great news! The council have resolved the issue of shading by new buildings and found a natural way to dissuade fools from lying in dog excreta and urine as soon as the temperature exceeds 17C - they've planted two lovely trees. That should end all the insanitary sun bathing in this area. Now all they need to do is shade the rest of the park as well to encourage the sun bathers might to do something a tad better for their health than lounging in a dog toilet.
