I'm not sure who is the right person at Southwark to talk to , but I will try and stir something up tomorrow! However if all else fails, American Express will soon have their "tennis event" there so maybe they could substitute the rats for the balls - or is that cruelty to animals!
have southwark council made any noises about what is happening in regards to the Berkeley development.
Im assuming the decision is on hold until the out come of the Olympic bid is known.
I did wright to John Presscot slaging off the inquiry before Christmas ,but the reply I got just said they hadn't received the inspectors report yet. That was in december.
You cannot build, to cater sufficiently for demand, enough housing on the horizontal except on the periphery and that defeats the point of living in inner London - theres too much stuff there already! If you dont build upwards then you are left with one interesting choice: in the words of those forward-thinking headbangers: "Down, down,deeper and down..."
I'm not against high buildings, just not so many of them and not on every available patch. I;m not, for example, opposed to the Shard of Glass, nor to the two large towers we are getting at the Elephant. But I am against the one they want to build near the Tate Modern, and I'm certainly against the development at Potters Fields - this one in particular will look SO incongruous with the Tower and as I said before, the design looks like a gasworks.
