City of London Academy development on Richard Cloudsley site

Revised proposals for the RCS site have now been published and were discussed at a public meeting held on Monday 24 April. The majority of those present agreed that the revised scheme should be opposed.  A summary of the comments made at the meeting will be uploaded to this site shortly.

Note, the consultation closes soon.  GLERA sub-committee will be commenting on behalf of GLERA but individual residents and others interested are encouraged to submit their views as soon as possible. Comments can be made through the consultation agency website.  Comments can also be made by email direct to: jessicas@commcommuk.com Comments should be submitted by the end of this week.  

The consultation website sets out the amended proposals and also explains the next steps.

If you have not already signed the petition, follow this link.

For detailed updates follow this link to the Facebook site.

Here is a short video summarising some of the problems with the proposals.

Further updates can be found in the forum here.
