Yeah: they'll consider all comments a nuisance as they steamroll forward with the application...
All developers carry out 'consultations' with the public and local stakeholders, but in my experience little comes of it.
I was merely pointing to the reason Sarah V couldn't find a planning application. Given the habit of Southwark to not write to local residents these days or even place planning notices near the site it is best to keep an eagle eye on the planning register and respond with comments.

If it goes ahead as planned, me and many others will have a 9 or 14 storey building 3-4 metres from our only windows!
Anyway, whether you like the idea or not, if comments are not given voices have no chance of being heard so would encourage you all to give feedback. I have to say I am suspicious of any developer who gives beautiful, coloured drawings rather than CGI representations of what it will actually look like and how it will have an impact on the skyline and neighbours.
