Rotherhithe is losing it's identity at a very rapid speed, this is a prime example of this.

This is a symbol of Rotherhithe. Plans to remove the crane and regenerate Odessa Street appear to have been deliberately withheld from residents.

This site was protected by a restrictive covenant that meant it could only be used for open space. I am not aware that residents were not given the opportunity to object to the change of use approved in January 2014. The crane is unique and open space is becoming rarer and rarer. The spirit and enjoyment of the community is disappearing. Development is being progressed at the cost of community amenities - , kids play areas, seating and viewing areas, local pubs etc.

I was shocked when I heard that the site where the red crane sits has been sold with out public consultation. I am against development of the site that leads to the removal and destruction of the crane. It should be restored and preserved as a reminder of the arees former dockland heritage. The whole site including the youth centre building and the basketball court have been deliberately neglected. It should be opened up and landscaped and returned to public use and not turned into yet another development of luxury flats. I really do hope this decision is over turned. Too much heritage is being lost in London and all to satisfy property developers.

I would also like to add that as a resident of Rotherhithe Street, I received no notification from the developers about the public meeting that recently took place concerning the new proposed housing development. I live in this area and walk past that crane everyday. So I should have received some sort of notification about the meeting.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Because it's an important piece of dockland history.
