New Cross Labour Party have published Joan Ruddock’s submission on Convoys Wharf planning application for consideration by the Mayor of London on their web site. Joan argues for better planning and support for the Sayes Garden project and the project to rebuild the Lenox, the flagship of the Restoration Navy. She also states that the current provision for social housing is not adequate, although I am given to understand that the final determination of the housing mix is to be taken later in the process.
I have written to the GLA planning officer reinforcing these points.
I wish I had opposed the height of the towers as inappropriate and the density too.
The Crosswhatfields site has a great article on reasons to oppose the application, let’s hope residents and expert views are taken into account, but the precedents don’t auger well.
