Wow - so the guys who are doing the demolition are unrelated to Commodore who will be building the new building in the space next to Bermondsey Kitchen
? That is incredible. My flat overlooks the site so I watched with astonishment yesterday as the JCB bloke attacked the old buildings.
So far as I can tell from the Southwark Council
website, only the buildings on the very bottom end of that part of Bermondsey Street
, and the small building right next to Tanners Yard, are buildings of interest under the Southwark development policy. The rest of that small plot of buildings is presumably up for grabs from a development point of view, but I agree that you would hope the council would make some kind of effort if an illegal demolition was occurring. What next? Could some other team just move in and start demolishing the Recall site?
New to site, so hi to everyone, etc.
