Maybe Tricky Skills will do one of his revealing FOEs so we find out what the damage was (in terms of consultants fees)?
I never heard about it either - though was so ill I could not have gone (on 15th December).Got this today:
(Wonder who has been invited to the "public realm steering group"? As first time I have heard its meeting.)
Change of time: The next meeting of the LJ Neighbourhood Planning Forum will take place on Thursday 28 January at 8pm at the Loughborough Centre.
The next meeting of the Forum was due to take place on Wednesday 20 January but has been put back to Thursday 28 January to allow for the availability of Councillor Matt Parr and the results of Lambeth's bid to the GLA regeneration fund for the Loughborough Farm triangle site which should be known on 21 January.
The time of the meeting has been put back in order that Councillor Brathwaite's public realm steering group can meet beforehand at 6.30pm. The progress of this group with be an item on the agenda which is to follow.
Please do ring if you have any queries

Loughborough Junction Masterplan | Lambeth Council
What has happened is that the Council has now caved in completely to the motorist.Is this where the road closures were discussed? Apols if wrong. I spotted this update on another forum
Loughborough Junction - what you need to know | Lambeth Council.
It is conceivable that in the next couple of years the issue might come back - when the Higgs and Hinton Road sites are built. They would be far more affected by traffic than the Loughbrough Estate I imagine. Loughborough has plenty of space whereas the new buildings will be right on the road it looks like.What has happened is that the Council has now caved in completely to the motorist.
There will be a further statutory consultation on the "improvements" that the new steering group are formulating. This is planned to be soon. Will let people here know when they start.
My opinion is that its a farce. All suggestions to reduce road traffic have been ruled out of the discussion. So the new improvements will be motorist first, pedestrians and cyclists second.
So people will not be given different options to comment on. All roads will be open to the motorist. See the opening up of Padfield and Calais road. So I don’t know what exactly we are going to be asked to comment on - very little imo.
