From the Elephant Amenity Network
You will know by now that the shopping centre planning application has been approved, by a very narrow margin. However there is still some distance to go before the development goes forward and the Mayor of London had to give his endorsement to Southwark’s decision.
We are campaigning now to get the Mayor to refuse to do this, as he has the power to do, and this will be the main item on the agenda of our next meeting, which will be will be next Tues 17 July 2018, 7pm, Bingo room, Palaces Bingo, 3rd Floor shopping centre.
Please bring the attached invite.
Meantime – Please SIGN THE PETITION

Eight Labour councillors, including the local ward councillors and the deputy leader, have made their dissatisfaction with the decision clear and have also asked London mayor Sadiq Khan to make improvements. London Assembly member Florence Eshalomi and a local Labour ward has added their voices to the call.
Hope to see you on Tuesday
