The Shell Centre is holding an exhibition and workshop to discuss future development there. Details can be found on the SE1 website, or email [email protected]

There are workshops on Wednesday 1 Feb evening and Thursday 2 Feb afternoon, and I think there are still places available. If you want to have your say, this is your chance!

I know it was a nice sunny day, but this has to have been the worst attended planning event I have ever been to.

The development proposals are sketchy in the extreme.

The consultancy company Soundings, the same experts in 'community consultation' who are doing the consultation in The Elephant are, I see, also doing the Shell Centre thingy. Joy oh joy!

Ouch - that looks really high density. The existing buildings have plenty of space between them and in their internal squares, so they look quite 'leisurely', but this looks like every possible square metre of plan space has been used.

That "public" square's not going to get much light.

And I noticed that they show the existing Elisabeth House shape, rather than any indication of the proposed, taller new buildings.

I would guess that having such tall buildings on both sides of York Road might turn it into a dark, windy canyon.

Maybe it looks better in real life.
