Today sees the start of the public consultation by Thomas Pollard Edwards architects on behalf of the Almshouse Charity. This planned development on land owned by The Dulwich Estate that is leased to Judith Kerr Primary School, Half Moon Lane. The planned development is for 21 residental flats for elderly people placed in what is currently the playground for the children attending the school.
When the Dulwich Estate negioated the lease with Southwark Council and Department for Education, the retained the right to submit planning applications on the Green Space area which the school and the governors must not object to.
The consultation is at Wednesday 8th June 4pm-7.30pm at the Methodist Church Hall, Half Moon Lane.
Ths Save the Playground campaign feel very strongly that this developemt would be a hugely negative impact on the school and the wider community. The removal of the playground space would leave the children with less than 20% of the outside space stipulated in the Department of Education regulations. It would be unsafe and unfair.
