For all interested parties -
The Southwark Council
planning committee will hear the latest revised retrospective planning applications for the site on Green Walk
have now issued their report and are RECOMMENDING APPROVAL of everything the developer has submitted, granting consent for Blocks A, B, C and D, as well as a new building on Block E.
On the Jam Factory site's Planning page - http://www.myjamfactory.com/planning
- is a letter sent by the residents association to the Planning Committee and Councillors.
The facts are:
- The Developer breached the original planning consent, and failed to comply with legally binding conditions and that Southwark Council
failed to take enforcement action.
- Consistent with this disregard for planning laws and policy the applicant seeks (i) to maintain what they have built in breach of existing planning conditions and policy guidelines with an application for retention and (ii) to obtain permission for developments which would also breach those guidelines to the detriment of Jam Factory and Meakin estate residents.
This is not NIMBYism but respect of residents and official policy and procedure. It is important, if you are concerned about the impact of any future development, that you make your views known, whatever they may be.
The Planning Officer's report, whilst recommending approval, is clearly marginal.
The local Ward Councillors are opposed to the scheme, as are both Haddon Hall and The Meakin Estate residents.
Please make your views known, by attending the Planning Meeting on TUESDAY 16th October at 7pm, Southwark Town Hall, Peckham.
