As you may know there have been in the order of 100 objections to the scheme and
the main grounds are similar to the grounds on which the application was previously
The Recall Site is going to Planning Committee on Tuesday 29 July. This means the application will be
decided yes or no on that evening.[/b]
The address for the committee meeting is: -
Southwark Town Hall
Peckham Road

Officers were waiting for some more information - this has been received and can be
seen at Southwark but has not yet been loaded on the website. Officers say the
information appears not represent ��significant change�� and there will be no further extension for consultation on this information.
• Planning committee
The planning committee are body who will either support or overturn their views
(whichever way things are put forward).
• Recent case
The Jam Factory Residents were recently very successful at Planning Committee in
part because they attended the Committee in large numbers. It really makes a huge
difference to the Councillors. If anyone has any ideas for posters/banners or any
other visuals to maximise impact and make the event more memorable, that would
be most welcome.
• Planning committee
It is essential that everyone who has objections to the current proposals attend the
meeting to emphasise the strength of local residents' concerns.
There will be around 12 applications on the agenda compared
with the usual 4 so it is likely to be a late night. We don't know when Recall will
be heard but sometimes contentious applications end up at the end of the agenda.
We should assume that it would be a late night.
• Transport
If it would help the residents group can organise minibuses/cabs to take those
without transportation and if it is late in the agenda we could coordinate time of
attendance etc and this may make things much easier on the night.
• Preparation
We should also arrange a meeting for those who wish to contribute to how the
representation in made to review our approach and agree how to get the main points
across in the 3 minutes allowed. We suggest evening of Wednesday 23rd July (venue
tbc). When we last met as a group it was agreed that Patrick Collins from Royal Oak
Yard and potentially one other would use the objectors 3 minutes - is there anyone
on the Morocco Street side who can present their side of the case?.

Confirm attendance
Please can you indicate if you:-
1 wish to come to the preparation meeting on Wednesday 23rd Venue tbc
2 confirm your availability for the 29 July, and indicate if you would like help
getting there. The group can then organise minibuses/transport
