Took a look at the revised plans for the St George — Mary Datchelor development yesterday (links to some images in this comment — thanks, Nick). Now, I’m no architect, but these looked quite acceptable to me. They’ve agreed to keep the 1890s school building and the 1920s extension, less apartments crammed into the existing space and more green space left.
Other comments I’ve heard have been generally favourable also, so I wonder if these might not be the plans that finally get approval. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the Camberwell Society’s verdict will be; I’m sure they will give the plans a more rigorous check than the five minutes I spent yesterday.
