Thanks Jan - I meant to give this a plug in this week's SE1 Direct, but I forgot to add it to the list.

If you do manage to get there, it would be great if you could post an update after the meeting

Yeah, I'd be very interested to read a summary of the meeting as I can't make it tonight. I live right by the proposed dev and only heard about the meeting yesterday from a neighbour despite commenting on the proposal and registering an interest with the West Bermondsey Community Forum.

It seems that develpoments creep from proposal to reality accompanied by a distinct lack of public awareness not public apathy. It'd be a full time job trying to winkle out all the information needed to keep abreast of developments in the area!

No, but this would be quite hilarious if it didn't make me fume. This morning I received an invite and an agenda for yesterday's meeting from Catherine Sackey , Area Co-ordinator (Bankside, Borough, Elephant & Castle), Community Involvement Unit, Southwark Town Hall. Admittedly it had been sent at 2pm yesterday giving a whacking five hours notice of the meeting.

Perhaps she should work for the 'Community E-x-c-l-u-s-i-o-n Unit'. God forbid they should have proper public consultation, that might mean the developers have to alter their plans or timescales and the council don't get the inevitably enormous kick back that will vanish into the black hole of Southwark's coffers (allegedly)! Cynical? Me? Nah.

I'm going to write a letter of complaint for all the good it will do.

I'm still interested to hear from anyone that actually went along assuming anyone other than Caterine Sackey and the developers actually knew about it.
