Depot residents with councillor Ian Rathbone (far left) and Christine Williamson, Beecholme TRA vice-chair (fifth from right) with a "thumbs up" as the
proposed re-development planning application (2009/2490) is deemed unimplementable .
It means the 70+ jobs dependant on the depot remaining pretty much as it is are safe, at least for the time being.
It also means the Tram Depot Art Gallery and gallery VULPES VULPES, as well as individual resident artists, designers and craftsmen like the metal forge at Horse Workshops as well as bespoke small manufacturing firms like Furniture Design ltd, Line Furniture ltd, Touchwood Furniture ltd and the Plasterworks ltd can continue producing works.
It means the foam factory (London Foam ltd), the biggest employers in the Old TRam Depot complex avoid having to close permanently too.

REPLY: Thank you very much. We're just about to start another stage of the campaign to save both the building and jobs at the Tram Depot.... hopefully it will be as successful.
