|Our Protest pays dividends!
While the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has agreed that Southwark Council can determine the Elephant shopping centre application, Delancey failed to getplanning approval for the related Castle Square temporary facility for traders. This scheme must be approved before the main shopping centre scheme can go ahead.
Plannning sub-committee B decided to defer the decision because it was, amongst other things, dissatisfied with the rent levels proposed for Castle Sq.
The decision to defer the application empowered Southwark’s Chief Planning Officer to refuse the main application- and we argue he should do so, without delay. Unfortunately he has sent a letter to Delancey reassuring them that he won’t be doing that. He’s trying to bounce Planning Sub Committee B into approving the Castle Square application. See further details here.
Sign this petition calling on the Lead Member for Planning Johnson Situ to refuse the Elephant application now.
Protest again- No to the Castle Square scheme- It’s still rubbish!
We demand that the Planning Committee listens to the community and refuses this application.
