If anyone is interested there are four shortlisted developer's schemes on display for the Council owned site on the edge of Bermondsey Spa Gardens at the corner of Alscot Road and Grange Road. They are all big ranging from 5 to 9 storeys and will result in shadows, loss of trees thus making a real impact on the local community park. The schemes are on display at Albert Salter House corner of Spa Road and Grange Road which is open for viewing this Friday 10th 9 - 5.00 p.m. and Saturday 11th 10 - 5p.m.
Due to local lobbying viewing time for the public has been extended until Saturday 18 August so 9 - 5 during week and 10 - 5 on Saturday 18th. If you live nearby go and have a look and express your thoughts by filling in one of the questionnaires provided.

It is too soon to say certain local residents living close to the site in the park were "stunned" to have not been told about the developers' proposals by Council officers. Imagine living across from the park and suddenly finding out developers are thinking of building up to seven storeys directly opposite your property - and no one has bothered to tell you! Letters of objection are being submitted by local residents to Fred Manson, Simon Hughes , Counc Steve Lancashire and ward councillor, Richard Thomas. If anyone wants to add their name in support or get involved leave a message/ email address and I will contact them.
