Support Camberwell residents fight against developer

Dear Friend

Southwark Council recently refused planning permission to a large development just off the Old Kent Rd, by Burgess Park, after a campaign by local residents, who objected to its size and impact on the park.

Now the developer is appealing against that decision and there will be a hearing before a government Inspector in August.  Local residents have started a CrowdJustice appeal to get legal representation at the hearing and make sure that their voice is heard.  The appeal is supported by Southwark Law Centre, Wells Way TRA,  Friends of Burgess Park, Vital OKR and the Camberwell Society.

The development, known as Camberwell Union, offers 35% affordable housing, but should be offering 50%, because it would be on industrial land.  Mayor Sadiq Khan has promised 50% affordable housing on such sites in his new London Plan.

Please support the Camberwell residents in their fight by donating and sharing their CrowdJustice link.
