SAVE WATERLOO PARADISE
The green lung of the historic Lambeth, paradise of natural habitat for all is under threat!
MORE ABOUT SAVE WATERLOO PARADISE
Waterloo can be a hectic place: it has the UK’s largest station with 100 million commuters a year Europe’s largest arts centre with 30 million visitors a year, the HQ for Europe’s largest company, one of the UK’s major hospitals… and, amidst this dense bustle, Archbishop’s Park, a quiet green paradise.
But the bulldozers are coming! And Lambeth Council and the Mayor of London are waving them on contrary to their warm words and London plan policy. Now this paradise is threatened by the largest single office proposal ever seen in Lambeth – five huge tower blocks including 1.5 million square feet of offices and a tower of swanky flats (with the bare, statutory minimum of affordable housing), looming over Archbishop’s Park, blocking out the sky and dwarfing its magnificent trees.
