Great stuff.

Have you written to Southwark Council? It's not the sort of thing I would usually take the time to do, but I think this is such a good opportunity to add desparately needed housing stock to the area and kick-start improvements to the OKR that I had to write!

The butcher is Muscat butchers - on the south side of Peckham Park Road, about a dozen doors from the OKR, on the south side. Great butchers - their steak tends to have hung for six weeks or so.

Thanks James.

INDOMIE - be interested to see what you think of the new plans if you make it down there.

Judging by the latest info the number of flats has been 'revised' from 320 to 488...will definitely be taking a look this weekend!

Also interesting is the fact that they claim 50% of the flats will be affordable...

I suspect thats probably why Tesco have increased the number of units by over 50% from the original plans!

I really hope that they haven't spent the last eight months trying to cram as many new flats on this development as possible as they will erode much of the local goodwill towards this scheme and risk giving further ammunition to the anti Tesco bandwagon!

Judging by the picture on display outside on OKR today the design seems better but will find out more this evening.....

I think (but could be wrong) that 50% is the recommended proportion of affordable housing in new, dense developments in inner London

Tomorrow I'm viewing Oyster Court in Crampton Street (the shared ownership/affordable part of O Central) where the proportion is 24%.
