Thanks, very useful. I shall raid your note for my own to residents!

Only thing I spotted is that the St Mary's site for housing is at the front, with the new leisure centre to the rear.

Thanks for the write up Pros, the situation with Meadow gate are pretty crazy, as if Elephant Road was a safe enviroment.

The police should be making the borough safe, not boarding up the sections they don't fancy dealing with.

Thanks James

A remarkable but depressing document - Waterman's EIA scoping report says in relation to ecology (and speaking about the whole Heygate site)

"the site comprises mainly buidlings, hard standing and associated landscaping. Due to the nature of these habitats and the level of disturbance they are subject to, the habitats are considered to be of negligable value for wildlife..... However, trees and strubs do provide some, albeit limited, opportunities for breeding and foraging birds. The Site therefore presents an opportunity for ecological enhancement".

Absurd, given the presence of over 450 mature trees on the estate, many fruiting species, where less than 20% of the entire ground area is currently used for buildings, and where the trees provide a very significant area of tree canopy.

Given that many if not all of these trees are threatened by the new masterplan, this statement can only be said to be the attitude that the client is looking for!

sounds like another report written from a helicopter?
