News, at last....from the mouth of the officer responsible.
The posiition is that we originally proposed to the Bermondsey Community Council
a relatively small extension to the conservation area to take in parts of Grange Road
and Tower Bridge Road
. Public consultation produced a generally favourable response. However, a significant number of responses asked for further areas to be included as well, principally the former Jam Factory in Green Walk
Officers were of the view that the inclusion of most of these additional areas could be justified in architectural or historic terms (which are the only criteria for designating conservation areas). We therefore feel that there should be a reconsultation to include the residents of the additional areas.
We are therefore proposing to carry out this reconsultation over the next few weeks.
