Meeting with proposed Developers of 74-84 Long Lane: Thursday 15 June

Meeting with proposed Developers of 74-84 Long Lane
Thursday 15 June, 7:30pm at
The Boot and Flogger pub 10-20 Redcross Way, SE1 1TA

One of the few remaining buildings of character on Long Lane has been the subject of a ‘consultation’ in relation to a proposal for a ‘co-living’ tower.

At a public exhibition on their proposals at the end of January the developers (or rather their PR team) were less than transparent about their plans.  It was far from clear what treatment they were proposing for the existing Rug Co. building (pictured below).

We don’t know whether this is the same prospective developers or whether they will be any more forthcoming but anyone concerned to keep anything of the history of Long Lane intact may be interested in attending.

The notice below was spotted in a local Tesco.

Independent Review of Engagement in Southwark

Dear all

If you have not seen or completed this could I remind you about it?

Apologies for any cross posting.

The council is currently conducting an independent review of the way we engage with residents. An online questionnaire went live yesterday and we are seeking your assistance in circulating it as widely as possible so that everyone can have their voice heard. This is the link:

www.southwark.gov.uk/gettinginvolved

Southwark is an exciting place to live, and we want everyone who lives here to have a say in their home borough, in how it evolves, and how the council invests its time, energy and resources. We already have a number of ways for local people to get involved in our conversations and decisions, but in the fast-paced world we live in, we want to make sure that the opportunities to get involved are open to as many people as possible.  We want to improve how we involve council tenants, council homeowners and leaseholders in Southwark in decisions about their homes and neighbourhood, and we would like more people to be involved in making their estates even better places to live.

We already work closely with residents through Tenants and Residents Associations and there are a number of borough-wide and local opportunities for us to meet with representatives of tenants and homeowners to discuss both what is happening in your area as well as policies and concerns that affect all of Southwark. However, we know not everyone has a say, and we would like to make sure everyone can make their voices heard.

We want to know what you think about what we do now, what works well, what could be improved and what you think we can do to make it easier for you to take part.

By completing our survey you will help us to develop ideas about how we can we can do better. This survey will be just one of many ways we will gather information about what you think about the opportunities to get involved. We will also be holding focus groups, speaking to people face to face and researching what happens in other places.

Your voice will help shape the future of resident involvement.

Thank you for taking the time to get involved.

Kind regards

Eva Gomez
