Red Bus is right! We may negotiate with developers and celebrate when they agree to minor changes with a pat on the head!
What about the infractructure and the effect of these develoments on the community?Southwark Council
must take note of these important issues. You need to lobby them! Even if planning consent is not granted first time round they will probably win on appeal so a Masterplan for the area is crucial.
There will be millions of S106 funding available (Planning Gain Money) you need to tell Southwark Council
what you want to maintain a sustainable community! Like a swimming pool and cinema - they are possible.
Don't keep talking it's time for ACTION write letters to Regeneration Executive Richard Porter copied to Ward Councillors and Simon Hughes
Bankside Residents Forum will be submitting a S106 "wish list" to Southwark Council
and developers but they need the community to put their ideas on paper.
Send copies of letters and ideas to Bankside Residents Forum, 185 Park Street
, SE1 9DY who are currently co-ordinating resident feedback to Southwark and key developers
