My suggestion is that the local charity that has kept this building empty for eleven years should either use the asset properly or sell it, thereby bringing it back into beneficial use. I am not aware that the Dulwich Estate has made any planning applications in respect of this site in the last eleven years (do not confuse it with the old dairy site, which is a different story) and to my eyes they appear to be characteristically clueless. You mention that the building is awaiting demolition. Is this an assumption on your part or is it based on facts?
The Rosendale Surgery (NHS doctors' practice) has been looking for a new local home for years and the Dulwich Estate managed to use their interest as the sweetener to gain their controversial planning consent to redevelop the complex dairy site. A much simpler and faster solution would, in my opinion, be to redevelop the former egg building site to accommodate the Rosendale Surgery in modern purpose built accommodation. The site is much larger than it appears peering through the gates and any competent architect could produce a fabulous facility here. This could have been done years ago.
