Next week is a big week for the shopping centre. Mayor Sadiq Khan is expected to deliver his decision on the shopping centre planning application tomorrow, after Southwark Council referred their decision to approve Delancey’s plans to him at the end of November. He can either approve, direct refusal or take over the decision himself.
Sian Berry AM has written to the Mayor, asking him to call the decision in – read more here.
The planning application for Castle Square is also going to planning committee on Tuesday . This the tempororay relocation facility for the traders and is welcomed – but it is too small and there are many outstanding issues, such as length of leases and rent, which have not been resolved with the traders.
Delancey must get approval of the Castle Square application before it can proceed with the redevelopment of the shopping centre, so please join us to support the Traders on Tuesday – 6pm, Southwark Council HQ, 160 Tooley St SE12QH – read more here.
PS We raised £1800 at the Up the Elephant Party last week – 180 people attended – thanks to Distriandina, DJ Gloria, DJ Fulvio, Arch 7 traders, Elephant Traders Association, Latin Elephant, Southwark DCH, Southwark Notes and everyone who helped organise a great evening.
