CCT objects to GLL planning applications

Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL) have lodged with Lambeth Planning two applications on Carnegie Library – one for full Planning consent, the other for Listed Building consent.

CCT has sent in a Letter of Objection which you can read here: link
The Letter has been added to our Project Documents page. In addition we have submitted online a shorter version of the Letter which should appear on Lambeth’s Planning website. You can see GLL’s application, including plans, and the online Public Comments, if you search for ‘Carnegie’ on the Council’s search page (warning – the page is often out of action, you may need to keep trying):

The Council has posted the statutory Notice of Planning application on the front gate at Carnegie. The notice is dated 21 November 2016 and the comment period is 21 days. You may comment either online, by post, or by email to
Here is the official summary of the application; if you send a comment you should quote either the ‘FUL’ reference or the ‘LB’ one:
