There is a planning application in with Southwark Council to change the use of the Watch House on the corner of Bermondsey Street
and Long Lane
, from office/storage to Class A1 shop. My understanding is that the intention is to open a wine club shop there.
Good or bad idea? I guess that the council just want to maximise the income from this Grade II listed building which is in a conservation area (much good that does!)
The planning application number is 08-AP-2120 and the case officer is Sonia Watson 020 7525 5434. The consultation period ends on 17 September. The Planning website is http://planningonline.southwarksites.com/planningonline2/
