posting time 12.30am Tuesday
It has since come to light that there is a report by Alan Draper regional offcer of the LWT supporting the application. However there is now a very impressive submission from the Burbage Road Residents Association pointing out all the breaches re:Metropolitan Open Land and of the Unitary Development Plan.
Having had a quick read at this lengthy submission it is surprising that officers are prepared to stick their necks out to recommend this.. There are likely grounds for judicial review. There is substantial loss of open space to new buildings and
car parking on a very considerable scale1

SOUTHWARK TOWN HALL 7PM.
The London Wildlife survey of the site in 1997 when a road was proposed completely opposed the loss of the Heren Hill Stadium Meadow a Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation. However a report gone in this time with their name on it but done by a local firm supports the vcreation of new building and car park. A deferral is being sought to allow for proper consideration of this and also the process is being challenged as Southwark Council commissioned the Project Managers to devise a scheme and shortly before earlier deferred meetings withdrew their name from the planning application. Southwark are also major if not sole funder of the project managers. There would seem to be an attempt to create a distance and impartiality
which is not the case. Copies of 1997 LWT report from firstname.lastname@example.org

The Herne Hill Stadium Meadow is listed by the London Borough of Southwark as a Site of Local Importance for Nature conservation. ( is this why Southwark have suddenly withdrawn as joint applicant for the scheme.
Any development must recognise this and rebuilding should take place on existing footprint.

Before you consider supporting the present scheme I urge you to take a walk around the most wonderful local nature reserve. I did this last night its full of wildflowers and wildife habitats.
