From family support, fitness classes and learning to art exhibitions, festivals and talks, our activities are wide and far reaching.
The plans for a new office block are 225% the size of the existing ITV Studios. This slab of a building will blight views along the river and deprive neighbouring residents of daylight – unbelievably it was agreed by Lambeth Council planning committee in March.
Lambeth Council sent the application to the GLA, and Sadiq Khan on 9 August 2022 which means there are only a few days to left for the London Mayor to either approve the application, reject the application or “call it in” for more detailed scrutiny. There is every chance this application might “sneak under the radar” in the time left if we don’t speak up now!
There are two things we need your help with:
On the 22 August we will present the petition to Sadiq Khan to ask him to do the right thing for the South Bank and London.
2. Email the Secretary of State, Greg Clark MP PCU@levellingup.gov.uk
In your email please state:
The Minister has the power to put a stop to this and “call it in” for a public enquiry, where the scheme will be properly scrutinised and local people’s objections can be heard and not railroaded through.
The Secretary of State will be considering in the next couple of weeks whether he should “call this in” and take the 72 Upper Ground application to a full public enquiry. He needs to know how much opposition there is, both locally and further afield, which will make all the difference in whether he chooses to step in on this one.
We aim to achieve something better for Lambeth, London, and the UK.
Thank you so much for your support.
