@branchenergy IME there is usually friendlier atmosphere at Lambeth planning cttee than Southwark. But not tonight.
@langrabbie Quite. The amount of entirely avoidable ill-feeling towards council created tonight is considerable.
Completely wasted evening at Lambeth town hall. None of 5 SE1 items on agenda were actually discussed though 2 approved without discussion.
Councils really shoot themselves in foot with absurd procedures like Lambeth planning committee. Poor way to treat residents (& developers).
Guillotine system designed to prevent over-long meetings but no good if ppl have to give up TWO whole evenings to comment on a planning app
Lambeth planning committee agenda management is a farce. Too many items. Elderly Waterloo locals wait for 3.25 hours then item is deferred
Will #lambeth planning committee even get to consider Waterloo Road/Baylis Road scheme? Guillotine falls 10.45; public waiting since 7pm.
Been sitting on the floor at @lambethtownhall for two hours. Not a comfortable experience!
@JGurling perhaps planning cttee chairs should be sent to neighbouring boroughs to sit through entire evenings to see what it's like
Not keen on Lambeth council's new procedure for approving some planning applications at committee without any presentation or debate
RT @Pops1978: Lights out under Bermondsey Street tunnel, bit dark!!!
Standing room only at @lambethtownhall planning applications committee
Heading to @LambethTownHall where planning applications committee is considering a bumper crop of Waterloo SE1 schemes
Anyone know more? RT @Jm1976: looks like a big fire somewhere near tower bridge. North side
