Hi all,

Does anyone have a copy of the planning application for the development of City Walk on Long Lane?

I believe the original planning application number was 0100714 and was made in the early 2000s. I have some material which I found on the internet, but it seems to have been before Southwark Council started keeping digital records so the original application isn't available.

I have contacted the Council Planning Department, but all they could send me (after a 3 month wait) was the final decision notice and could not find the original application.

Any ideas/suggestions would be welcome!

Thanks for looking. Yes, I did find that one. Here are a list of things I have managed to find, they are generally reports/letters from the Planning Department rather than the original submission though:

211_long_lane_rept.doc - 29 November 2011
211_long_lane_init_reprs.doc - 30 November 2001
211_long_lane_report.doc - 26 March 2002
211_long_lane_final_decision.rtf - 26 March 2002
Notification in the London Gazette - 16 May 2003

I also have the decision notice, but only in paper form.

If anyone would like a copy of these for reference, drop me a message with your email address and I'd be happy to share them.

Hi. I live in City Walk - lovely people, quite nice flats, dreadful plumbing and shoddy build.

I am curious as to why you are interested in the original Planning Application. Are you planning to demolish and build them properly? :p

It is mainly general interest as I also live in City Walk and am interested in how the development came to be.

I thought it might also have some pictures of what was on the site before it was redeveloped in it, etc.

There seems to be quite a bit of demolition going on at the moment round here, but I think City Walk is going to be around for a bit longer yet! :)

I've got much of the original planning documentation. We got hold of it from the council when we moved here in 2010. You're welcome to come round to have a look at it. Phone on 0207 234 0340 if you want to pursue this.
