Thanks James,

Perhaps I have been psychologically brutalised by so many shockingly ugly development plans over the years, that my critical faculties have become grossly diminished - but to my eyes this one actually looks OK to me :) Although I suspect that the cool new high-level "amenity space" on their plans will be reserved for (marketing to) residents rather than open and welcoming for hoi polloi.

"Why Mr property developer, what shiny large plans you have..."

Would you like to go with me?
Wherever I'm going

And the council sells the idea of mixed communities in Southwark down the river again.

Surely we need to have more 'affordable' housing in the rich parts and more rich housing in the affordable parts - that's what will give us balanced communities.

So the Council leader has said that the 9 million from Neo Bankside can be used on the Aylesbury Estate. Because there's a real shortage of affordable housing round there, isn't there. (

I wonder where this 22 million will be spent? The Brandon Estate? Ledbury Estate? Tustin Estate?

I live next door to IPC Tower, and have to agree with RedBus - it actually looks OK. They have also listened to what the residents had to say and made some (albeit not all) amendments. The "amenity space" is currently also not open for non-residents and I don't see that changing. I quite like having a semi-private garden ;o)

Just looking at the artist renderings I wonder how much of that sunlight you'll actually get in what looks to be a fairly deep pit.
