48 storeys is ridiculous - thatís 2 less than Canary Wharf Tower
Two storeys of Canary Wharf is about the same as a two story house so using storeys as a scale is very a bad idea.

Correction! One storey of Canary Wharf is equivalent to a two storey house!

Why do we only get to hear of these developments after they've gone through Stage 1 Planning Approval? Despite being registered with Southwark Council, no electronic updates or alerts on Local Planning appear to ever get sent out, I get most of my information old school from signs on lampposts, you can bet your bottom dollar that Southwark would rather spend money like that than sending far lower cost E-mail Alerts out... #TiredOfHavingTheWoolPulledOverMyEyes and let's start not supporting Councillors that don't support the Social Housing percentage

Bakerloo Line has been downgraded to a project by TFL so if ever it is built it will be years ahead. Tower blocks with very little social housing are so not appropriate for this site,Developer claims no car parking space, towers will dwarf all the areas building around and totally ruin the skyline and views to St Pauls. Tower need to be clustered together like Canary wharf and E&C
