went along to see these...expecting models, maps and some depth, only to find a rather pathetic exhibition panel and a pile of questionaires, which you couldn't hope to answer as the display went into no detail whatsoever.

I know these are available deep in some obscure planning department, but shouldnt the plans be more readily available to the public?

From the little I saw, what I see the plans look really exciting, but I wonder if the residents of the huge ugly Heygate estate which will be demolished, have been properly consulted, and I pray that these limited plans are not another ill thought facade of improvement, rather than an in depth building of what essentially is a new town centre- the responsibility is huge!

I hope it works, as this forlorn area of london is screaming out for an identity
