    Default SAVE SOUTHBANK - The time is NOW!

    I'm sure you all know the score, the Southbank Centre plans to destroy the skateboarding Undercroft area to make way for retail space. Last week the Southbank Centre just submitted a 2nd planning application (it wasn't expected until early next year), and now skateboarders, local residents, and lovers of the space are racing to get planning objection forms in before the 18th Dec deadline.

    If everyone could please take 2 minutes to do an objection form it will help our cause to save it massively.
    http://surveymonkey.com/s/9DNCRKK

    Send this link to friends, family, work colleagues, uncle Raymond, facebook, twitter, get it out there! I know the great majority of skaters understand that the Undercroft is the oldest surviving skate spot in the world, and the epicentre of UK skate culture and history, and there has been an huge show of skater solidarity which is fantastic, but this is what counts. Object now!

    This short doc by LLSB has been posted here before, but just in case anyone hasn't seen it, it explains the fight and reasons to save the Undercroft really well.

    This has been stickied since that survey first went up, so I think most people here have filled it in, but it won't do any harm to have another thread too.

    Na mate just a skater. Been working flat out and not been able to help out much, but got some free time so trying to do what I can. Would be much appreciated if you could do an objection form and ask others to do the same. Non skaters too! Cheers

    That's a different link - the Lambeth council site, you have to register, login and find the objections form page. It's a bit long, convoluted and prob puts people off. The link I posted is quite new, and a lot quicker and easier. Peep it.

    This is the new application just for Hungerford, to soften the mood for re-submitting the main one - they're trying to bore us stupid and drown the public in planning guff, but SBC should get a robust response at all stages. You can read the links to documents and pics in the sticky thread without logging on to Lambeth, and then comment on them via LLSB.
