I just don't get the arguments against. Surely everyone loves Bermondsey Street because it is vibrant and lively with loads of great bars and restaurants, all independent, to choose from. The atmosphere in the street seems to improve year on year and long may it continue. Surely that's part of living in the centre of a great city, rather than some intolerant suburb.

I love it because it has independent shops, services and other businesses as well as its bars and restaurants. For me, it's the mix (and its balance)that matters.

Mr Garcia, some people wish to have something different than another place to eat in?

Is it so hard to understand?

Anyway good luck with your projects. Surely they will be of great quality.

Yes, no need to be rude - just an opinion placed. Thanks.

Why is that rude?

Ivanhoe.. focus on other things..
Why don't you PM me when you have something unrelated to say about me? I will do the same but lets not dissect any message like you always do... It is so useless!

My answer was as rude as Mr Garcia question.
Moreover I said :

Is that rude Mr JGracia?

Hope it stops here...

Well, that's me told, then.

From se1 Twitter feed today On Elephant and Castle Planning Decision:

"Nightclubs make noise. Not just from the music escaping across the rooftops, but from the people who queue directly outside the applicant's scheme, others who leave down Newington Causeway, and still others who laugh and chat in our front courtyard."

Cllr Eliza Mann asked Mr Presencer what sort of development he would consider to be acceptable on the site. "Anything that's not residential," he replied. He suggested offices, restaurants or leisure uses, and reminded members that the site is in the designated 'Enterprise Quarter' where businesses should be encouraged.

Responding to a question from Cllr Michael Situ, Mr Presencer described what he found when he visited his own club at 1am a few weeks ago. "The noise outside was unbelievable," he said.

"There are hundreds and hundreds of people outside shouting, screaming and being drunk. I make no apology for that. They are perfectly within their rights to be drunk at 3 o'clock in the morning shouting to their friends."

So what's happening at the site now ? It seems to be taking for ever and no indication as to what it is going to be or when it will open ?
