New building planned on Vine Street/Crosswall/Crutched Friars

I visited an exhibition of plans for the redevelopment of the Emperor House and Roman Wall House site on Vine Street yesterday. The redevelopment will involve accommodation for around 600 students, office space for mid sized firms and an incubator area where start ups will be able to rent space at low cost. In addition a section of London’s Roman wall will be on display to the public – here I am with a section of the wall in the basement – it used to have photocopiers next to it!

It was good to hear that local residents and businesses had been in to see the plans. The Planning Committee will be considering the application to amend the current planning permission for the site in January. Do let me know what you think.
