55 Southwark Street - 30 Story tower block.
For those that are not aware - there are plans to put in a 30!!!!! story tower in the site above (next to the Chocolate Factory) - see plans below. The main body of the tower (upscale flats again) is next to the railway.
You can see below how the Chocolate factory is dwarfed to give you an idea of scale. Do we need a huge towering building on Southwark Street? There is nothing at this scale anywhere nearby until down at Blackfriars or till you hit the Shard. Even BlueFin isn't that tall!!
This planning matter needs your urgent objection (can you imagine the noise, light and change to the area??). Planning objections close on Friday (14th August).
PLANNING REF: 14/AP/4773
Please again make sure you say you OBJECT otherwise it is taken as comments. Please do look at the planning application and you can see everything which is planned. But I ask you - do we need another high-rise luxury tower of flats?
The whole scheme is not without merit but the tower on the back will change the cityscape / and character of the area considerably.
Please do let everyone know! Please pass this along to everyone you know. Share on Facebook and Twitter.
AGAIN PLANNING OBJECTIONS CLOSE THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!
