At our first pub evening of the New Year on Tuesday 19 January we are very pleased to welcome as our speakers representatives of Sellar Paddington Ltd, the company behind the proposed new development adjacent to Paddington Station. As many of you will already be aware this is a proposal for the redevelopment of the former Royal Mail Sorting Office site fronting London Street and Praed Street, with a distinctive tall tower as its centrepiece. Consultations about the proposals are already underway and some of you may have visited the exhibition of the proposals held in Praed Street late last year. The plans include new housing, offices, shops and open space. As this project would have major implications for our area it was felt that members might wish to have more information about the proposed development and also to have the opportunity to ask questions of the developers.
We therefore hope that many of you will take advantage of this opportunity and we hope to see you at our pub evening on 19th January. As usual we will meet in the Upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn place from 6.30 – 8.30pm.
