Here we go again - automatic demolition of our beautiful historic social history! We hope many responses to NSP were: No automatic demolition of our social history. This Edwardian building in the way of progress for SBU is sickening!
This is supposed to be an educational establishment? I would seriously question that claim! They've clearly learnt 0 about social history and architectural merit!

This is a beautiful building and should be reused for the local community, for education or other community use - PLEASE KEEP THIS BEAUTIFUL BUILDING!

Wilful blindness is worse than those who are genuinely disabled!

It seems to me that this destruction of our area and its history is deliberate, and based on greed as the land is valuable, but our opinions and views count for nothing.

They are turning the area into some corporate ghetto.

Aside from the old main block on Borough Road, LSBU is responsible for some of the ugliest buildings in the area. So it's a shame they're going to flatten one of the only remaining old buildings, if that is indeed the intention.

Meanwhile I heard something on the radio about this the other day, and thought of all the places being thrown up around here:

Agree with the previous comment. LSBU has got so many ugly building to get rid of. Starting from that concrete monster on the corner between Southwark Bridge Road and Borough Road.
Instead they pick the only attractive building on their site. I'm scared by their statements "to preserve the heritage of the site WHERE POSSIBLE" and "If there are foundation stones, we will also ensure that they are carefully incorporated into the new building IF APPROPRIATE".
Very short sighted.
