BrandNewGuy thanks for the link. Looks like they are more serious this time - three times as many documents but it took 4 consultations before the CPZ went in.
The documents will take some time to digest but the recent exhibition was better than the original application (apparently back in 2010), if not ideal.
In anticipation of this I’d been looking at some Council policies, the New Southwark plan has been submitted and is pretty good as these things go around protection for wildlife. There are a lot of documents on the application so in case it saves anyone some reading here is what I found that I thought may be relevant when the planning app came out.
The Southwark Open Space Strategy [www.southwark.gov.uk
Dulwich Hamlet is designated Other Open Space OS130
Dog Kennel Hill , OS119 is a Site of Importance for Nature (SINC) and Metropolitan Open Land (MOL)
Greendale Playing Fields, OS128 is also a SINC and Metropolitan Open Land
Greendale AstroTurf, OS129 is MOL
Table 8 in Annex 5 relates to Cleaner, Greener, Safer (I think its in Annex 5 anyway, I made the note some time ago and its not as clear now)
56 Open Space - MOL
P58 Green Infrastructure
I also see one of the documents is a Travel Plan and the impact on local transport was something I’d noted to look at. I’d noted sections in the New Southwark Plan and Draft London Plan that might be useful
New Southwark Plan - amended policy P9 Optimising Delivery of New Homes
- account of additional infrastructure needs - public transport, schools, NHS? Draft New LONDON Plan, D6 when determining density of development connectivity - walking an public transport and capacity of infrastructure to be considered
This may be a bit early but may help when the time comes to comment.
I’m also going to contact the Parks department and express support for Green Dale Fields now the access is better and in my comments on the application refer to using this more and how its developing. Will the development impact this? The Council saw the value and spent money to redevelop Green Dale Fields. How is the development compatible with their plans could be questions to ask
