As has been mentioned, John is presenting the scheme at the BSAP's meeting tomorrow the 7 February at 6.30 at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (across from Delfina's). We have a planning group that comments on most larger planning applications in the area. If you want to join us, please do. Annual joining fee is only £10 for residents and includes our Christmas and summer parties, the Festival and other events as they come along like a preview today at the FTM.
Thanks Shawna - just to clarify - you don't have to be a member of the Bermondsey Steet Area Partnership to come along - all prospective members welcome. If you're interested in your area just turn up tomorrow and see what goes on. Refreshments are provided. (Also on the agenda tomorrow is the latest update on the Recall site.)
Thanks James, but this withdrawal was only a technical hitch and the planning permission for the erection of two penthouses and four new flats is still live. The planning consultation period ends on 8 March.
The result of these applications was that the conservation officer recommended refusal as the development was too big and the applicants withdrew. John Ross has started redeveloping the ground floor of building no 7 in accordance with planning permission he received in 2006.
I don't think anyone knows yet what's going to happen next. So watch this space...
John Ross is going ahead with submitting revised plans for building no 5 with one storey less. There was a consultation on it last week but people only got 24 hours notice so there is another one this week at 6.30, Wed 21 May. The entrance to no5 is through unit 1, 7 Tyers Gate - the last grey door on the left before the park.
