Old Bermondsey Village Neighbourhood Forum application and Draft New Southwark Plan
Wednesday 4 March 6.30pm Globe House
For those who didn’t make it, our last meeting on 18th February settled a revised constitution and a new Forum name: Old Bermondsey Village (Neighbourhood) Forum. This enabled us to close down the last of the Council’s technical objections to our application and we submitted the amendments last Friday. Finally we now have confirmation from Southwark Council that they no longer have any excuse not to determine our application (click here to see correspondence). Even so, they are still angling for an excuse. Mark Williams, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport says he has ‘concerns’ over our constitution – but doesn’t say what. We will be keeping up the pressure.
Meanwhile we need to submit some representations on the new draft Southwark Plan by the deadline of 6th March. The documents can be read here. In particular we should be commenting on high-rise, housing, heritage and designated sites.
Please will our followers submit any comments for BVAG’s submission by 6th of March. Comments can also be sent directly to the council by completing the consultation questionnaire and sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also we will hold an informal meeting next Wednesday to discuss our group representations.
