Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

Building flats inside an existing gasholder is extremely challenging, and correspondingly expensive, and probably only viable because these flats will have views of the Oval that means people will be willing to pay £1m+ for them. (Ditto those next to Google's HQ). Is that really the case in Bell Gre...

Great to see an organisation like this trying to invest in Sydenham. Let's hope that it doesn't fall victim to the usual well intended obstruction... Yes - perhaps if everyone in favour, even if they might not use it themselves, left a comment on the planning application website that might smooth t...

Re: Alfred Pub

...indeed - sky-high prices and over-occupation is precisely what you get when you don’t build enough houses for Sydenham’s population (good news for those who bought big houses decades ago)

Alfred Pub

A baffling decision. Lewisham Council has rejected a proposal to build five, two-bedroom flats above and around the Alfred Pub. The plan proposed a three-story side-infill and a mansard roof. The rejection - http://planning.lewisham.gov.uk/online-applications/files/D54551CA5F957FEFA46430EEC89E881A/p...

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

Would housing built inside a gasholder be affordable? That Kings Cross scheme was terribly expensive - reflecting its prime location and in part no doubt to the engineering challenge.

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

Does this decision preclude the gas holders from being replaced with housing at a later date?
