BVAG are fighting a similar fight in the 'Bermondsey Village' area. It is clear that heritage is presently not an issue with which Southwark Council is engaged - like central government, come to that. We have learned a few lessons over the past couple of years that you might be interested to share. We should certainly coordinate over some threatened buildings that we all want to see preserved. I am very concerned about the Sons of Temperance building. Do you know what is happening with it?
Just to let you know that the owner of Imbibe, 173 Blackfriars Road put in a planning aplication last year to erect a 3&9 storey building on the site of his bar last year. Planning App number 11/AP/1972 but then withdrew it due,(one assumes) to a better offer.
