Surrey Canal masterplan

The masterplan for a major new development surrounding Millwall Stadium has been released. The vision is to build 2,700 new homes and a "sporting destination for Lewisham and the South East" on the 30 acre site, which we hope relies on more than just the appeal of Millwall FC.

Details are scant at this stage, but hopefully the release will jog Boris' memory about asking for the cash to build Surrey Canal station.

Well it refers to "the planned new Surrey Canal Road station on the East London Line extension" as if it's a certainty.

No doubt the planners are taking an optimistic line. Tfl will be after a wedge toward the station at the very least I would have thought.

And reasonably so. Seems like it would be fundamental to making this development viable. Depends what other S106 commitments there are.

Well I know that the northern line link to the barking thing is seriously being looked at in lu on the back of the development so who knows?

Please elaborate Mb. What's this Northern Line link proposal about?

Is this the plan Peter De Savra talked about in 2007?

It's no secret, it's been in the papers. Probably didn't explain very well, it's for the battersea project. Nothing to do with surrey canal.

These projects do fade away though, no cheques have been signed yet

The Surrey canal road station should have been a certainty. the stadium, and this new development should have supported the need for the station even more. the developers, i hope, would have been contributing financially to the costs of this station

That should be "Boris's memory" not "Boris' memory".

Brockley Nick said...

@Pedant - no, it's fine that way.

agree with Nick; the punctuation was perfect!

pedant said...

No, it really isn't. You follow the pronunciation:

"Was that Ken's idea?"
"No, it was Boris's."

Therefore the exceptions are things like Socrates and Jesus (though usage in relation to the latter is changing).

Now Then said...

Jesus wep't

@pedant, I agree that the best thing is to go
by how you say it, but there is nothing actually grammatically wrong with Boris'.

Don't it mean there is more than one Boris but only one memory?

Headhunter said...

Actually if the name you wish to make possessive ends in an "s" you can use either "s's" or "s'", both are valid.
