Erm... sadly not as up on my Kant as I would like to be. Didn't even finish Sophie's World, IIRC. But I look forward to the time when I've got a free Sunday to read it. The Kant, I mean.

Jackie - glad to hear it. Pressure on them needs to be unrelenting still. Thanks for the bit of good news though!

Trust me, I'm a total PAIN when it comes to nagging and pushing and bringing the case to the fore...I'll never miss a chance to jump around and explain why the local population are horrified at the indiscrimate development of unsuitable and incongruous projects which only benefit the shareholders and have absolutely no contribution either to the people nor to the aesthetics of the area.

Whilst it may turn out to be the case that the land owned by Southwark Council is not utilized in the final development, I don't think it is safe to assume that no devlopment at all will happen on the land owned by B.Homes - there is very likely to be a contingency plan based on the possibility of them only having a diminished footprint to build on. Given the likely approval of the larger scheme, it would probably get through planning fairly easily.

According to the Southwark News a source close to John Prescott
says he is unlikly to change his mind.
its a good article though.
