Good news - Camberwell Union appeal dismissed 
The Secretary of State has dismissed the appeal for the 499 home and industrial space scheme Camberwell Union.

The Inspectors report found it would not meet space and amenity standards and did not relate to the character of the area, or the park. This has significant implications for the Parkhouse St developments.
FOBP with other local groups put evidence to the inquiry.
