That slab should at least be broken up into two (preferably three), perhaps an extra floor to keep a similar number of units.

One hopes that the shortcut from Canada Street to the Tube station via the side of Decathlon isn't hindered. In past months it has saved me from excess loitering at the Pizza Hut bus stop at least twice.

Ineptitude by Southwark Council in redacting documents they put on line reveal that the Heygate Estate was sold to Lend Lease for a paltry £50m (probably less money than the council have spent on emptying and securing the estate)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-21338296

Oakmayne Plaza next door, which is a fraction of the size of the Heygate, was sold for £40m in April 2011.

Some new hoardings seem to be going up at Downtown Place (or will it be Redwood Park?). Good if that means work will finally start. It's an unremarkable low-rise Barratt's residential development, but it's very close to my house so may get more coverage in this thread than it otherwise deserves...

Screening application for Mulberry Business Park site: "Redevelopment of the site to provide student accommodation (sui generis), residential (Class C3), flexible retail/health care (Classes A1-A5, D1) and flexible commercial space (Class B1 or D1)."

No documents uploaded yet.

Officer Dibble do you somehow get alerts on the planning applications register?!

Anyway Mulberry confuses me... do you know if this screening opinion stuff is King's College? Perhaps they are preparing a Mulberry plan in advance of Southwark's decision on Harmsworth Quays?

I don't get alerts, but you can search by week (usually not a long list).

I don't know more than you do re Mulberry. Student accommodation is listed first, so it may well be King's, but without seeing any documents I'm only guessing.

If I remember correctly from their presentation a few months ago, King's College have already purchased land in the area and this must be the Mulberry site. I would have preferred to see a complete vision together with the Harmsworth Quays site, that would be exciting.

Marine Wharf phase two launching (though I thought they were already marketing it).

"Cadmus Court and Navigation House will comprise 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, courtyards, the new linear park on Grand Canal Avenue, a 24 hour concierge and a wealth of retail and leisure facilities including a Tesco Express due to open this year."

Definite movement here - some big diggers onsite this morning, and by the looks of things they must have been working for a week or two at least.

















And, from the Google cache of the now-defunct website of the Friends of Russia Dock Woodland, a letter late last year from Barratt's to "Steve", who I imagine is Steve Cornish who has led nimby opposition to this scheme (which, as a local resident myself, I don't understand at all):

Quote:
Dear Steve,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 30th October. Unfortunately I was on leave that week and you used an incorrect e-mail address. Please note for future use. However I was forwarded your comments and have now had the opportunity to discuss the issues you have raised with our operational team. Accordingly I would respond as follows;

1. The removal of shrubs and bushes from along the boundary of Redriff School was undertaken at the request of the school and the local police.

2. We have met with and discussed these issues with The Council's Environment Enforcement team and they have accepted that there has been no illegal dumping of shrubs or spoil and no 'crime' has been committed.

3. The fencing around the area which will be phase two of the development has now been made safe.

As Barratt have now begun site works for the development and will begin pilling in early 2013 may I take the opportunity to advise you of arrangements for communications with local residents and community organisations during the construction period.

1. We will be issuing a quarterly site newsletter to all residents in the area providing information on construction, planning and marketing information. The first copy of this will be distributed in the next few weeks.

2. We have put in place a 24/7 hotline for local residents to use should any issues arise regarding the construction process. This will provide direct contact with the contractors and site management team and is the most efficient means of contact with them. The number is 0845 4606011.

3. We also have a residents/community email address of info@...

All emails to this address are urgently routed to the appropriate department/manager concerned.

Barratt London have ensured that the site is registered under the considerate constructors scheme and that all our contractors are fully aware of the Council's requirements for a safe and proper operation of the site.

If you or any residents have any concerns please do not hesitate to inform us immediately.

Yours sincerely,

Greg Tillotson
Regional Development Director
Barratt London
(my highlights.)

An architect from Allies & Morrison went through the Mulberry student accomodation plans yesterday at the Canada Water forum, it is indeed for King's College.

The buildings would definately be one of most interesting ones around, and I think more or less secures their bid for Harmsworth quays.

I couldn't find any pics online though sorry.

Greenwich Council has approved plans to demolish the Burger King at Fiveways (A20) and build a hotel: http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/news/10..._hotel/?ref=nt

Don't think the renders capture the "ambiance" of the A20 Crossways. The lucky residents standing on their hotel room balcony, taking in the wonderful site of the Carphone Warehouse shop across four lanes of traffic whilst breathing in an array of pollutants and chemicals that will play Russian Roulette with their health for many years to come...Mmmmmm enchanting!

Many a drunken fight/night witnessed in the Crossways. Although not as heretical as the Yorkshire Grey being turned into a McD's down the road many moons ago or the Dutch House into a Harvester, turning that into a Burger King was bizarre to say the least.

Yeah, given the size of the site it might have been better to build a few storeys higher and create some green space between the hotel and the busy roads. Still, it's a big improvement over what's there now.
