I thought any development this big had to include affordable housing. Is that not the case?Pack in those young professionals!

It looks to be more like a glorified hall of residence rather than blocks of flats - I guess it's counted as one unit rather than 41 separate ones which would (in theory at least) require them to build affordable housing.
As Radiohead might put it, those young professionals will be Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box. Each room has a microscopic bathroom and that's it.It looks to be more like a glorified hall of residence rather than blocks of flats - I guess it's counted as one unit rather than 41 separate ones which would (in theory at least) require them to build affordable housing.
HMO - i wonder if it counts as a single property? Picture of the previous/existing permission on their website - https://www.gcdgroup.co.uk/blank Five large houses.
They probably realised they could make a shitload more money by turning it into 41 rabbit hutches for the well off young professionals who need their own in-house gym.
There was a skinhead guy on Streatham High Street aggressively demanding £2 from passers by on Saturday. He didnt get very far with me but i thought he had a right cheek. Whatever happened to asking for 10, or maximum 50p?Not sure if this quoted right...in reference to shop staff having it tough...but there's a quite aggressive Big Issue seller outside the Sainsbury's Local opposite Brixton Palza. Asked me if I had £5 or £10 for him, and when I said I didn't accused me of lying. I saw him from the bus more or less following people from the entrance. But if he's a BI seller, what can the staff do?
