A planning application has been submitted for the group of victorian warehouses to be demolished, at 44-60 Lancaster Street, se1, known as the Colorama buildings.
Southwark council has previously undertaken a character appraisal and recommended them for listing.(see link below)
Glasshill Street and Webber Street heritage buildings were proposed for demolition. Southwark Council listened and prevented this from occuring. However, the battle to retain the heritage of the area is not over. Want to help save the heritage of the area?
Make your views heard, via Southwark Council website (link below) consultation period ends 12/05/12
UPDATE - it looks as though the consultation period will be extended as they have not yet sent out the consultation letters to residents within the immediate vicinity. Once they do, 21 days consultation will start. I will keep you posted.
NB - Not all of the information on the planning application is uploaded on Southwark website. For example, the design and access statement.
Once the design statement is available for viewing, it will allow for more scrutiny of the justifications and intentions of the developers.
I was recently informed that it is not just the volume of objections recieved, but more the content.
I will upload more information on some useful pointers on how to make objections/comments directly on this planning applications.
