LFS: How to comment (by Thu 14th May)

You can see the letter which announced the publication of the LFS planning application here.

We have until Thursday 14th May (this Thursday) to make comments on the application.

If you wish to just give support to the project you can write in to say that.  If you wish to tell the planning committee about things which concern you then you need to say that you "object".  You can phrase this as: "I don't object as long as ..." or "I object because...", but the word object needs to be there.  If you would like there to be a public meeting, say so.  Also say if you would like to present your views in person at the meeting.

You can find information about the film school here on this blog (see the items with the Film School label).  The City planning web site has the submitted plans and the comments received so far.

The number of letters received counts, so please write letters individually.  The letter does not need to be long, but it should be from your point of view with respect to your flat.  Text simply copied from the letter of another resident or group counts for less than your own words.

According to the City:
Comments can be submitted by letter, email (PLNComments@cityoflondon.gov.uk) or through the City Corporation’s website.
The postal address is:
The Department of the Built Environment
PO Box 270
London EC2P 2EJ
The City give lots of information about submitting comments here.  They recommend making comments using their website and promise that if you do that you'll be kept up to date with the progress of the application.

To find the application on the City website go to the search page,  use "Simple" search tab (which should be the default) and enter "15/00203/FULL" in the search box and press Search:
