According to this story [http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/1536] in the news section of the SE1 website, the GLA is consulting on which views of London and the riverside are of strategic importance and should be protected.
As the Berkeley Homes proposal for Potters Fields (or anything else much bigger than the existing St Olave's Grammar School buildings) would completely obstruct the view of the river and the city skyline presently afforded from the south side of Tower Bridge (from Tooley Street
north), perhaps residents might like to respond to the consultation by suggesting that this is a view worth preserving - at least by imposing a cap on the maximum height of buildings on this site.
Presently it is possible that a cap may exist in parts, to prevent the strategic view of St Pauls from Blackheath from being obstructed. But successful lobbying might broaden this corridor and lower the ceiling for permitted developments.
Only a thought....
