I have relatives that live on the Aylesbury Estate further up Walworth Road. There were really advanced plans to demolish the estate and replace it with modern housing, including mock-up show homes. A letter came through recently saying that the funding has ran out and the redevelopment won't happen anymore, tough luck. After years of planning and consultation as well. If this is a sign of things to come for Southwark redevelopment... let's see in 2 or 3 years time. Maybe we'll get saved by some aggressive rate cuts and stamp duty revisions.
James, apologies for posting on the wrong thread... and thanks for the new information. Wish the communication was better, we seem to get the odd letter here and there and our reaction was that it was all off - the last letter certainly pointed to that. Hope it all comes together one day.
