We have previously mentioned the proposed Judith Kerr Free Bilingual (English/German) Primary School on our website. The school is planning to locate at 62-68 Half Moon Lane – the old King’s College London Plant Science Laboratories – and open in September 2013. Initially a temporary modular building will be constructed on the site to accommodate about 100 children while the KCL buildings are fitted out for a school capable of accommodating up to 350 children. If you would like to know more about the school, the web site is http://www.jkps.org.uk/.

b) Premier Hire, Giant Arches off Burbage Road
You may have noticed when travelling down Burbage Road that lorries and plant machinery vehicles are sometimes parked on Burbage Road near the railway bridge. Premier Hire have been expanding their business and have needed to park vehicles on the carriageway. The business would now like to construct a 2.4m, solid timber panel fence and security gates as well as undertake some resurfacing to make more intensive use of the area to the west of the railway arches adjacent to Cobb and Royston Courts. Currently there is an unsightly temporary hoarding and gates in place. Full details of the planning application can be found at : http://planningonline.southwark.gov.uk/AcolNetCGI.exe?ACTION=UNWRAP&RIPNAME=Root.PgeResultDetail&TheSystemkey=9549419. Comments on the application (13/AP/1246) closed on 18th July. The decision is awaited.
