For all local residents who sent in their comments on this extensive planning application to Southwark Council during the consultation process, please note that I have been informed yesterday by Southwark Council that due to an administrative error such residents have not received the written notification to which they are enttiled of the date of the planning committee meeting.

Due to the scale of this error and the resulting loss of opportunity for residents to examine the Council's report in sufficient time before the meeting this Tuesday 1st July, I would urge anyone who is concerned about this to express their views via phone or email to the Council at [email protected]

This major planning application, if approved, will result in the following:
- Building heights that significantly exceed the 2-4 storeys stipulated in the Valentine Place Conservation Area Appraisal 2012
- Significant loss of light and privacy at Bridgehouse Court and Quentin House residential buildings
- A complete loss of the historic shaping and character of this unique townscape in a designated conservation area.
- Demolition of over 50% of the buildings in the townscape, including loss of the Victorian warehouse facade at 3-5 Valentine Place and COMPLETE DEMOLITION OF THE HISTORIC MALTINA BAKERY BUILDING AT 21 WEBBER STREET, EXCEPT FOR ITS FACADE, AND DESTRUCTION OF ITS KEY INTERNAL FEATURES THAT INCLUDE A MAGNIFICENT VAULTED WOODEN ROOF, ORIGINAL PARQUET FLOORING AND A UNIQUE TILED INNER COURTYARD WITH SKYLIGHT ACCESS TO ROOF LEVEL.

The planning committee is set to take place at 7pm this coming Tuesday 1st July 2014 at Southwark Council's offices at 160 Tooley Street.

I urge all concerned residents to get in touch with the Council and request a postponement of the Valentine Place planning application in order to give residents time to be notified in sufficient time.

if the postponement is not granted, then a show of local support at the planning committee meeting would be most welcome.

Thank you.
