Yes to the Elephant & Castle Planning Application

This petition had 568 supporters

Billions are being invested to make Elephant & Castle a better and more attractive place to live in. However, a group claiming to represent the entire community are doing all they can to prevent this change from happening. Their ideal solution is for the shopping centre to remain as it is, and for the council to turn away billions of investment.

The council meet again on 30th of January for a final decision, and we want the voice of EVERYONE to be heard this time, not just the few who fear change.  

What is our argument?
The positive of the planning application totally outweigh the negatives:
- More social housing will be provided compared to ZERO on the existing site
- Thousands of jobs will be created for the local community 
- The shopping centre is in a dire structural state and will benefit from a state of the art development 
- Elephant & Castle will become a more desirable place to visit and to live in
- The entire community will benefit from living in a better, cleaner and more socially friendly environment than what we have currently

Please support this petition to help rebuild the elephant for generations to come, and prevent a few who fear change dictate our future.
