Follow up to Vauxhall-Nine Elms planning meeting

Don't forget that this Wednesday the KOV Forum are holding a follow up meeting to discuss the London Mayor's plans for comprehensive redevelopment of the area between Vauxhall Cross and Battersea Power Station.
It will be held this Wednesday 10 February, 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start, at St Peters Church, 310 Kennington Lane, SE11 5HY (corner of Tyers St).
The Vauxhall Society have submitted an initial response to the plans which raise some excellent questions:
-the need to remove Vauxhall's gyratory system
-that high density housing could be achieved through medium-rise buildings, not towers
-that tall buildings should not be along the riverside or railway as they contribute to the 'barrier' effect we already suffer from
-that proposals for public transport improvements are not adequate
Prince's Branch Labour Party have agreed that members are concerned about:
-whether sufficient social and family-sized housing will be built
-whether new buildings and communities will be properly integrated with existing communities east of the railway
-whether residents have been properly consulted
-whether proposals for new infrastructure are adequate
