A Model for Convoys Wharf?

We are still waiting for a response from Lewisham Council to the letter we sent regarding the cost order against us. The Judge ordered that we pay £8,000 of the Council’s costs. We do of course recognise the Order of the Court and our requirement to comply with it. The Mayor of London waived his […]

Some Good News

‘Pitiful’: Frustrated councillors rubber-stamp first Convoys Wharf blocks

From the article: Councillors criticised the low levels of “affordable” housing – Paul Bell, the cabinet member for housing, who also sits in Lewisham’s main planning committee, called it “truly pitiful” and got a dig in at the prime minister’s handling of the coronavirus too, adding: “It is a disgraceful legacy of Boris Johnson, although […]
