Hello Sarah

I am the Chair of a local Tenants & Resients Association that represents some properties on Long Lane, and at was stuck over one of our noticeboards. I received an email from Old Bermondsey Village Neighbourhood Forum that says a poster was put up in the local Tesco. Just because of the way it refers to Empire Square, I think it has been put up by a local, very poor if done by the company organising the consultation.[/quote]

How strange. It isn't clear who has organised the meeting from the poster except that it seems that the room at The Boot and Flogger has been reserved in the name of Hard Hat.
Well, I intend to go along tomorrow so no doubt will find out.
Thanks for posting on here.[/quote]

Hello Sarah

An email has been forwarded to me today:
"Good afternoon,

Apologies for the short notice but we wanted to let you know about a meeting with developers of the proposed 74 Long Lane development, next to the building you represent. We, Empire Square Residents Association, have organised this meeting as we have concerns over the proposal.

The meeting will take place on Thursday 15 June at 7.30pm at the Boot & Flogger on Redcross Way. It would be great if you could also provide representation there but, if not, then it would be beneficial to work together to review the impact on residents around the proposed development.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Lynsey Marshall
On behalf of Empire Square Residents Association"

Good afternoon all,

Following last week's extremely tense meeting with the developers (who sneaked in their planning application submission whilst stalling all requests for proper neighbours' consultation) many residents, and in particular those who would be more directly affected by the proposed development, are scrambling to comment on the planning application.

Already 13 comments are visible on Southwark Council planning portal, and they pretty much summarise all the negative feelings aired at the meeting.

One thing that isn't mentioned in any comment as yet (raised earlier in this thread), is that the Victorian centre portion of the existing building complex would be completely demolished - even though the matter was criticised by the Authorities during previous planning application reviews (also visible on the portal).

Anyway... it would be good if you could also review the planning application and post your views. The deadline is this Sunday 2 July.

Maybe it helps to produce effective planning objections (I got answers for my questions / concerns): http://www.hampdenfieldsactiongroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/HowtoobjecttoaplanningapplicationEbook.pdf

Please, bear in mind try to be less emotional and more practical your objection... like:

2., Travel plan - RESIDENTAL TRAVEL PLAN, page 1, 1.3 point: "The site is in a highly accessible area and the development does not provide any car parking."

(How about this part of the development, think about disabled persons, offices, sub contractors...)

The travel plan of the development listing the public transport and car clubs opportunities as a main travel solution to the coliving residents but as a local resident I know how weak the capacity of those services.
The C10 bus route are constantly need improvements because one of the worst bus route of London, 2009: http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/4221 2014: http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/7438
The Borough Tube Station also has weak access / service and no step free access from to the South platform: https://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/borough-tube-station-london

Page 11, 3.21 point, Table 3.3 The cited car club opportunities are only existing on papers, 1-2 cars / locations. If you check the availability of the cars in the peak times than only vans will be available.

Page 9, Table 3.1 the cited Tesco Express is still overcrowded in the peak times and not suitable for decent shopping. The closest supermarkets on the Old Kent Rd 20-30 mins far.

(need more works on the above text...)
