Previewed at the Bermondsey Street Area Partnership's
Party tonight, the "Three Houses" development will provoke plenty of healthy debate, so I thought that SE1 would be the ideal starting point for discussion.

The Sellar project is for the development of 3 large towers(the largest an 80-storey version, about the same as the nearby Shard) around the St.Thomas Street/Bermondsey Street junction. My precis of ancillary details : New school, Lido in Leathermarket Gardens; key worker and mostly family accomodation proposed.

Will be in the press soon...all comments welcome

Wot's a key worker? someone who works for Chubb?

Teachers, nurses, social workers, officers of the law, prison service personnel, army service individuals, therapists, etc.

Thank you Tolstoy, I was always puzzled by the definition..:-) would that be essential staff on a very low income?

Your welcome. Those people we rely upon to ensure stability and growth of the individual within a framework of empathy and understanding for the common good via guidelines enshrined in the principles of democracy, so yes... on a low income.

School, lido? What about a Waitrose?
