Yet again Southwark give permission to tear down ornate historic and characterful building frontages such as the Paper Moon public house and the lovely warehouse to it's left to be replaced with faceless zero character (most probably glass) high rises. Having visited Dubai, all I felt was a yearning for some sort of historic or cultural substance i.e. the old town and visiting the oldest mosque. This area really is fast becoming little Dubai.

I was back in SE1 the other week - just for a short while [ meeting ] and things have changed in tyhe 14 months since ive been gone - give it another 24 months and i wont know the place

The more i think about se1 - the more i miss it, its like ive lost a loved one

Used to luv getting off the tube at the elephant and then walking in a different route each day to the BFB, same thing at lunchtime - mow its the same boring walk every day here in the wharf

Apologies for going slightly off subject here yet I agree, ok nice they are re0builiding/branding SE1 but never take away the history of character

Are we not sick to the back teeth of these glassy developments where we know without use of a crystal ball that local residents will be shafted, and not a single affordable home will be built. FFS!!!! . I won't even bother to put commas around affordable as we all know they will not be, except for overseas "off plan" investors. I can't bring myself to go and see the plans. I just want to throw up.

It is astonishing that the developer announces on Friday 18 November that there will be an exhibition of their proposals on Saturday 19 November. The result is many local residents and interest groups only hear about it when London SE1 announce it on Monday 21 Nov! Who knew about this exhibition beforehand?

The developers sent round details of the exhibition by post to local residents and businesses about 10 days ahead.

The exhibition was also listed in our email newsletter sent out on Monday 14 November:

The CGI of the tower cluster on the 18 BFR website (which includes a completed Bankside Quarter, One Blackfriars, and the proposed 18 Blackfriars) looks great! Much nicer for the skyline than random, one-off tall buildings.

The 18 Blackfriars scheme will be considered by planning committee on Wed 19 July 5.30pm - officers' recommendation is to approve.

It looks like East Croydon
