It’s around six months late and one of the least informative consultations I’ve seen.
It’s mostly a lot of buzzwords and phrases thrown around with next to no detail on how many homes are planned, building heights, total shops space and much else.
However, if we look at financial results revealed by the company today we can see that 2,500 homes could be built:
In the consultation for the public, the only real detail is more walking links through the site which was a given.
Amusingly it raises the Bakerloo Line (yep, the project with no funding) and states:
“Hyper connected to central London (Bakerloo Line) and the South East.
Well, it has the DLR and Southeastern.
The best case scenario if funding was approved in recent years was a 2030 opening. Now with no funding and no sign of any funding, 2035 would be seen as a great result.
The consultation site is so lacking in any sort of real detail – especially considering this follows the first round in early 2020 – that I keep thinking I’m missing clicking on the relevant pages.
