We have objected to the current planning application on many grounds – lack of affordable housing, impact on trees, poor sustainable development, density of development etc. (view brief summary here..).
We want our objections to be given a fair hearing when the applications are eventually presented to committee, probably in January and February, but the way the rules are at the moment objectors will only get 3 minutes between them to make their points.
This is plainly completely inadequate for such a large development and we have written to the Planning Committee asking for a more sensible arrangement.
We are inviting local objectors to a meeting at 7pm on Tues 11 Dec at the Crossway church on New Kent road. This will involve discussing how best to approach the hearing and ensure that we make best use of any time or methods for voicing our objections.
7pm Tues 11 Dec 2012 – Crossway Church 100 New Kent Rd SE1 6TU. Please come along if you can and let us know your views.
