Many of you will know the saga of the Jam Factory development application (for those of you that don't, see & ).

The decision is finally going to be made on the retrospective planning application for Blocks A, B, C, D, and proposed E (after many delays) on Tuesday 5.6.07 at 7pm at the Southwark Town Hall, Peckham Road, London SE5 8UB. (Item 1 on the agenda, room A2)

I'd encourage anyone who has an interest in the site or the Southwark planning process to attend the meeting. The Jam Factory Residents Association is running a free shuttle bus service from the main gates on Green Walk from 6pm, returning back to Green Walk after the meeting. I would encourage as many of you as possible to attend on the night.

Committee Meeting 05.06.07: Decision Deferred

Planning Committee will now sit for a second follow-up session in July 2007

The Planning Committee have deferred their decision on the Jam Factory Planning Applications until the next meeting in July - dates to be confirmed by the Council.

The Commmittee will be visiting the Jam Factory site for further fact finding and to better enable them to take a decision over the actual site conditions here.

A detailed review of the proceedings on Tuesday night will follow soon.

Finally, a big thank-you to all those residents who turned on the night - the turn-out was very large and we had standing room only. This was noted and acknowledged by the Chair of the Committee, Councillor James Gurling.

Have the flats in Block D been sold or are they just sitting empty?

They're still empty. The developer can not do anything with this block until the planning application issue is solved.
