We had a letter inviting us to go along to Leather market to look at the proposals (in 3D) and question the developer prior to planning application going in but not got it with me so cannot remember the exact dates it is on but think it is 2 days this week
Is the developer's agent the same Kim Humphreys who used to be deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for housing. The one who shamelessly evicted the Heygate tenants to make way for a luxury housing development?
Do any SE1'ers have reservations about the huge redevelopment of over 100 apartments including a 9-storey tower proposed for the 'Stage Electrics' site on Long Lane? (Application number 13/AP/4586)
I'm wondering if anyone shares my reservations about the scale of this development especially:
a) building a 9-storey tower in close proximity to The Leathermarket and the Bermondsey Street conservation area encouraging height-creep in the area and repeating the mistake of Antoine Heights.
b) Spoiling the street-scape and special character of the Eastern end of Long Lane which features various buildings all of approximately the same height.
