Was talking to someone who works on udderbelly the other week
He said that because of the posh new flats they cannot have a an upside cow for the next tow years as residents will object to it
He also said the festivals days are numbered and will only go on for 2 more years because...
the care park has been sold through shell to the developer and it is intended for use as a private garden for the owners of the posh new flats that no one in waterloo can afford ...
He might have got it all wrong... I hope so... does anyone know the future of the car park / land?

The developers of the Shell Centre do have a plan to acquire the coach park - but to extend Jubilee Gardens, not as a private garden.

This was announced back in 2013:

Undoubtedly a key motivation behind this scheme is protecting the river views of the flats they are building.

Yes, especially because the most luxurious and expensive block they are building ("The Belvedere") is on Belvedere Road adjacent to the railway line.

On a similar note, I wonder what the new residents of One Tower Bridge will think of all the festivals held in Potters Fields throughout the summer...

Most of south bank place has been sold to foreign investors according to the standard so I doubt they will care .. probably the same at tower bridge
