[SE1 Discussion] Calling on the residents of Elephant and Castle!

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 18:26:18 +0000

Hello,

My name is James Dodds and I'm currently in my final year studying Human Geography at Swansea University.

For my final year project, I’m researching how residents perceive the new regeneration taking place in the Elephant and Castle area, focusing particularly on the Elephant Park development where the Heygate Estate once stood.

I'm posting on this forum to ask if any residents in the Elephant and Castle area would like to voice their thoughts and feelings on the Elephant Park development in an interview with myself in the coming weeks. If your interested please feel free to email me at jameschristopherd4@gmail.com.

Best wishes,

James

I used these guys yesterday: www.silversaints.com ; for plumbing, but I am very happy with the work and ease of booking. They do all sorts of trades. You book in 1hr slots although there is a '60 minute arrival window' and he arrived 30 minutes into that, but compared to waiting in all day or all morning for someone else.. it was fine. They do all sorts of stuff and travel by bike so don't have parking hassle. No connection except as a first-time customer.

Were there tunnels under SCH? When I worked there I was told there were MOD tunnels starting under the building, and I did go in the beginning bit of some kind of tunnels there but I don't really know now what they were.

Haha - best keep my address secret in that case. Anyway, now the butcher's shop is closing, our culinary delights may need a re-think!!

[quote suziq]Sorry for any confusion. I was replying to MarcoC's comment that the butcher didn't have the tools to cut thin slices of beef. My point was that if he can butcher whole sheep , cows and pigs, cutting thin slices of beef is unlikely to be much of a challenge. Anyway, it's not important - just wanted to give a good review of the place. From my experience it's always been a good butcher and, an added bonus, they would get in anything you asked for, whether they normally stocked it or not. I've ordered venison, pheasants, quail, rabbit and various other things over the years, so I'm definitely going to miss the shop.[/quote]

Sounds like we should all want to come over to yours for dinner Suziq :)

Some may, of course, say that Bermondsey street has not changed in a good way too. I jokingly refer to it as a street where you can buy lots of things you want, but nothing you actually need. Giddy Grocer being the latest vendor with an unwritten motto of never knowingly underpriced.

[quote Gavin Smith]I'd say that the Bermondsey Street heritage - whatever that actually is - was lost years back. People who talk about "heritage" clearly have no idea what stood on Tanner Street, the height of the buildings/warehouses that stood there, or indeed what stood on the open space prior to its enlargement. In heritage terms, Bermondsey Street and its immediate surroundings were dark and dismal places. To suggest, therefore, that its heritage is at risk is a bit disingenuous. Perhaps we can be enlightened?

This is a classic case of nimbyism. The net effect of reading this thread is that I have gone to the Southwark planning website to register my support for the proposal.[/quote]

Couldn't agree with you more Gavin. When I first moved to the area, 20 years ago, Bermondsay Street was a very different place, and not in a good way.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Proposed new shops at the Elephant.

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 14:52:26 +0000

Tiendas is totally different to the current proposal. It is specifically targeted at a narrow audience. The current proposal Isn’t that. It is supposed to target a wider audience. As formulated the current proposal is a waste of time and money for everyone involved. I’m sure a succcessful proposal is there to be had, but what’s on the drawings now isn’t it. It completely ignores retailing common sense.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Proposed new shops at the Elephant.

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 14:17:50 +0000

One of the precedents cited in the planning application is Tiendas del Sur, the mini-mall of Latin American shops in the old post office on the Draper Estate.

There are some small businesses - particular in the kiosks in the shopping centre - for whom this new Elephant Arcade could be suitable for, if it's priced and managed right.

They will not be able to give away these shops to sensible retailers never mind charge rent. A sensible retailer will take one look at this, laugh and walk away. Only naive fools will open stores here. If they are lucky, they will only loose money. If they are really unlucky, they will lose everything.
