Sarahmc....your letter (email) is comprehensive........ mine was short and sweet!

I believe that the plan for flats is wrong. It is already a high-density area, and new flats will be too close to existing flats....there will be no privacy for either developments.

The application to cut down trees is a scandal. The area is drab enough without losing a dozen mature trees.

I'm a girl, I like to go on a bit! AND also I am really cross about these plans and want to make sure all my objections are clear!

Thanks everyone for being so suportive, it's so important that the Council (and St.George) know that this is not something that happens without the local population knowing, caring, and NOT simply rolling over and accepting it

Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 12.30 the Southwark News is coming to do a piece about the aforementioned trees. Please will any of you who feel strongly about this come and join the protest? We will be in the "front garden" of Metro Central Heights beside the big trees near the bus stop of Newington Causeway, just off the northern roundabout of the E&C opposite small tube station.

If you're having a photo opportunity we'd be keen to cover this too. One of your neighbours from MCH was in touch last week about us running a news piece on the trees row. I suggested a photo opportunity of some kind might be more interesting than a plain "residents oppose planning application" story, but I never heard any more.

Ah HA, yes indeed! I arrived late (sorry but inevitable) and got the stragglers, Lorraine Zuleta our indomitable councillor, Stephen Eighteen of the Southwark News, the Professor and David (one of our neighbours) and....another gorgeous young man with a notebook. I did think "maybe that's James" but was too polite to ask but - bless him - he identified himself and I GAVE HIM A KISS!! SO all of you who have never kissed James YA BOO SUCKS TO YOU!!!!

So were you a tree vandal? Did you scratch JR+JH in a heart shape into the bark to capture the moment ...?
