Southwark shows us the way

Courtesy of James Hughes at the noble Victorian Society, we can take a look an example of a conservation area being extended to protect an endangered building – and by Southwark Council too, just a short way up the river.

In this case, the building under threat was a glorious Edwardian bakery, from 1907.

It was saved by a local residents’ campaign which managed to persuade the Council to create a new Conservation area, thus preventing plans for its demolition.

Check out the full story here.

This is the kind of happy ending we want for our building!
Greenwich Council, why not take a leaf out of Southwark’s book?
