I saw that on Saturday and thought it was Costa Coffee - was pleased when I saw it was the viet cafe. Jose needs it more though!

So can businesses just set themselevs up with tables & chairs in parks?

Not in this weather!

I sat out there and had my first taste of a noodles dish the other day, between rain showers. It was delicious and copious in quantity. It was very busy inside. I look forward to returning.

A planning application for the tables in the park has now been submitted:

Can you do that? Stick 'em out and then say, 'Oh yeah by the way about those chairs and tables...' It is a sweet spot on a nice day, though. Might pop down today even.

Is there any planner/architect/experienced person out there who can give us some tips on how we should frame our objections to the planning application? There is something distateful about public space being made private.

Having checked the Southwark Council site, I could not find a list of neighbours who were consulted (I am not sure whether no neighbour will be consulted, or whether they are yet to be consulted). I would also think that the scope of consultation should be quite wide as the park is likely to be used by all the local residents on Bermondsey Street, Tanner Street, Morocco Road, White Grounds (apologies to those I have inadvertently omitted).

Surely this only improves the park Froggy. They only have the tables on the hard landscaping so are no really using the leisure space in the park? I think it all looks really inviting

I can't personally see that it does any harm there, I think it adds an extra ambience to what is essentially merely the spot where you park your bikes.

Have to say I agree with the above comments. Sat out there last weekend and thought it was a lovely spot from which to watch the world go by. Granted if they started to encroach on the park itself that would be a different matter, but as it's on the hard ground I see it as a welcome addition.
