I totally agree about the river's edge but can we protect the open spaces as well please?

Good News
Simon Hughes is supporting the Tooley Street and Tower Bridge Community Association in fighting this development. He has agreed to host a Press Conference at our NUtmeg House premises next Tuesday.
We have updated our website to give details about the Public Inquiry next week. We need as many people as possible to turn up and give their oppinions

Given the biblical reference there is also a passage which says:

"And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver."
(Zechariah 11:12)

And they will, I'm sure.

I do find it interesting that Potters is not listed on BBC London's website under open spaces of interest though...

The opportunity is to make it somewhere of interest

And who is going to do that an in whose interest? Tourists or ice cream salesmen?

Potters Fields may not be of widespread interest per se - but surely the key issue about this site is its relationship to Tower Bridge - one of the four of 'Britain's Best Buildings' according to the BBC series of that name (in autumn 2002?)presented by architecture pundit Dan Cruikshank.

'It quickly became, and remains, a symbol, an image, of the city where it was built.'

And that is why there is such widespread concern about the buildings that provide a backdrop to the bridge. It is not just residents of Tooley Street who think that Berkeley's proposals are completely over the top.
