Further to Mickeysalt's query regarding Thameslink 2000, there has been an important development in the last couple of days. (I thought I'd start a new topic because it's important stuff and I didn't want people to miss it).
I've been in touch with Network Rail and they tell me that they submitted a new planning application to Southwark Council
on Friday for the replacement buildings around Borough Market
As soon as the application becomes validated people have 21 days to view the plans and comment on them, which they can do in the following ways:
Network Rail will be holding an exhibition of the plans at Borough Market
in Green Dragon Court
on Thursday 15 July from 7-9am and 12-7pm. (Anyone can just turn up and view them).
You can also view them at local libraries. A full list of places to view them will be posted on the Network Rail website from noon today:
You can go into the Southwark Council
offices (tel 020 7525 5402 for more information)
Or you can view them on the Southwark Council
where brief details have already been posted (Application Number 04-AP-1133)
I'm told it is highly likely that the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister will also want to hold an enquiry, which will probably happen in 2005, but it is still important for people to make their views known through the means available listed above.
