1) Copies of any minutes from meetings concerning the demolition of 64-84
Tooley Street at London Bridge.

Dear Mr Kennedy,

 

Thank you for your email on 3 March about the potential demolition of the
former South Eastern Railway Offices at 64-84 Tooley Street, London.  You
have asked for:

 

     "1) any minutes from meetings concerning the

     demolition of 64-84 tooley street at London bridge.

    

     2) any update on what will be happening with the

     tooley street building

    

     3) any information regarding any requests for the

     demolition to go ahead"

 

I will now consider each of your points in turn:

 

 1. I can confirm that English Heritage’s London Advisory Committee
(‘LAC’) which provides independent advice to English Heritage
staff, has discussed the possible demolition of 64-84 Tooley Street as
part of the development of London Bridge Station.  Having considered
the relevant sections of the committee’s minutes for release under the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004 I am pleased to attach them
to this email. 

     Further information about LAC including the committee’s Terms of
Reference, can found on our website at:
[1]http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/about....

 

 2. As the EIR only cover “recorded information” and you are asking “what
will be happening to” 64-84 Tooley Street  I have considered this part
of your email outside of the EIR, as ‘normal course of business’.  I
hope that the following is of interest:

The Deputy Mayor of London announced last week that he is: "content to
allow Southwark Council to determine the case itself, subject to any
action that the Secretary of State may take, and [that he does] not
therefore wish to direct refusal". Southwark Council has resolved that it
is minded to grant planning permission for the redevelopment of the
station including the demolition of the listed train shed and the
demolition of the unlisted South Eastern Railway Offices building at 64-84
Tooley Street.  The Secretary of State may yet decide to call the
application in for his own decision but if it is not “called-in” then
Southwark can issue their decision letter subject, of course, to any
negotiations about conditions and obligations.  Unless those opposed to
the proposals can have the decision overturned through a Judicial Review,
it looks very much as if 64-84 Tooley Street is set to be demolished.

 

 3. The demolition of 64-84 Tooley Street is part of the development
proposals for London Bridge Station and as such English Heritage does
not hold any “requests for the demolition to go ahead”.  However a
copy of the most recent Conservation Area Consent application  which
includes the possible demolition of 64-84 Tooley Street (ref:
11/AP/2080) and other related documentation is available on LB
Southwark’s website at:
[2]http://planningonline.southwarksites.com....
The progress of the application is discussed in answer to point 2 of
your request. 

I hope that the information that I have been able to provide is helpful to
you.  If however you are unhappy with my answers to points 1 and 3 to your
request you may ask for an internal review.  Details of our review
procedure are attached.

 

Yours sincerely,
