Public Meeting for those interested in a community response to Delancey's latest planning proposal for the Elephant Shopping Centre. All welcome
Monday 5th March at Newington TRA Hall, 77 Canterbury Place, off Newington Butts SE17 3AD. Starts at 6pm
Here are some of the questions campaigners will be asking:
The social rented housing is being increased from 33 to 74 units although this still does not reach that required by Southwark’s housing policy. Why is the commitment to increase the amount further, to 116 units not in the latest amendment to the planning application?
Can Delancey confirm that the most expensive affordable units, at 80% market, are being increased from 20% to 47% of affordable total? (59 to 161 units, Band G)
Can Delancey confirm that the London Living Rent units, the mid-rent range, are being decreased from 46% to 28% of affordable total? (158 units down to 95)
Why is the Castle Sq Box Park proposed to rehouse traders only 300 sqm? Way too small! Delancey not really engaging with the real issues that will affect the traders re: relocation and compensation.
Why won’t Delancey provide the playspace required on the West Site (LCC site)? (It is proposing an in lieu payment instead).
What are Delancey doing about loss of daylight/sunlight on Oswin St?
Does Delancey still hope to make £153m profit?
