Southwark throws out KPF’s £500m Bermondsey biscuit factory plans

Good questions, everyone knows London needs homes for the people who work there, and especially who don't pull in financial-sector wages and bonuses. Where they might live, and in what conditions they live, should be under constant debate. If any of these Councils were serious, they should be compulsory - purchasing land to a Masterplanned solution, or central government should be handing over publicly-owned Railway, Gasometer, Post Office, waste-land etc. etc. for proper neighbourhoods. Blackmailing the private developers to modify rubbish greedy schemes to shoehorn in 35% social housing is pretty much a guarantee to get random and daft ideas. If you are going to tax them to get the funds, just do it openly.
