Wandsworth planners are considering a planning application to redevelop the Ram Brewery Site: the planning application number is 2012/5286.
We would like to see the old brewery site redeveloped to become a vibrant part of the town centre. However, we have concerns with various aspects of the scheme, and most importantly we do not want the 36-storey tall building that forms a significant feature of the proposals.
We have made a preliminary objection to the scheme, which you can view here and have now made our formal response to the application, which you can
The application documents can be seen by clicking here. This link will take you to the Wandsworth Council case file for the application, which also contains a link to make a comment.
We hope that you too will object to this extremely tall building, please visit the council's website and let the council and us know what you think. Although the consultation period is now closed it is still worth letting the Council know what you think, every little bit helps. The easiest way to comment is to write an email to email@example.com with the subject 2012/5286 Ram Brewery.
We will be adding further information about the Society's opposition to the current proposals. If you want to let us know your views on these proposals please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have circulated this leaflet to local residents.
The Wandle, our under-appreciated second river, already has stretches of enhanced bank and the Spit open space at the river’s mouth. However there is still much to do to create what is potentially a linear park. We support the linking of the Wandle Trail through to Carshalton for walkers and cyclists.
