Shopping centre redevelopment – opposition grows

From Elephant Amenity Network

Dear Friend

Despite being approved by the planning committee there is growing opposition to the Elephant and Castle shopping centre scheme.

The scheme must be approved by Mayor Sadiq Khan and a NEW petition organised by Latin Elephant is calling on him to either direct refusal of the application or take it over himself.

Southwark Defend Council Housing had a stall at the SGTO summer fest in Camberwell yesterday and got a good response to the campaign to stop the scheme.   Labour Party branches and Camberwell and Peckham Constituency Labour Party have also demanded that Mayor Sadiq Khan calls this application in. You can see the motion they passed here.   Green AM Sian Berry has also written to the Mayor, as have ward Councillors.

PLEASE sign the online petition here.

You can also send objections and comments to here – mayor@london.gov.uk – quoting Southwark Council planning ref 16/AP/4458

Regards

EAN Shopping centre meeting 17 July

From the Elephant Amenity Network

Dear Friend

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

Sadiq: Say NO to the displacement of BAME communities from Elephant & Castle

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.

Campaign groups, including the 35% Campaign, Latin Elephant and Up the Elephant have also vowed to continue the fight.

See http://35percent.org/2018-07-09-delancey/

Hope to see you on Tuesday

Regards
