Some residents of Nelson Square have also been following the story with a proposed development of Octavia House, in the junction of Union Street and Nelson Square.

The residents have praised the consultation for clarity, openness and visible models of the proposals to help neighbours to make up their minds.

The current 3-storey unremarkable red brick building was proposed to be replaced by a 18-storey new building – but the Southwark planners have now told the developers to reduce the proposed height to 14 storeys.

It may be good news if the Council planning department is taking a stand against height of building near Blackfriars Road. The irony is that there was no opposition from the residents for this development proposal.

There is a new consultation with the new reduced height plans on 11 June 2013 at

Octavia House
235-241 Union Street
