Kennington Cross (minor update re. 216 Kennington Road and a new project?)

I've lost count of the number of people who have emailed, left comments on the blog and sent Tweets with questions and info about what's happening at 216 Kennington Road.  All that any of us know is that white lines have been painted, sections of the kerb have been dug up and a new loading bay has been installed at the side of the development.  I'm presuming that this is in anticipation of the yet-to-be-confirmed Tesco, but I'm also presuming that it might help with the construction work required for the new flats in the development (which I think are part of the same planning consent as the alleged supermarket).  No more info. I'm afraid, but thanks to those who've been asking and those that intially notified me about the works.

Also, I've noticed an intriguing new project, "Pathways at Kennington Cross" which looks related to the old St Anselm Project, whose website seems to have disappeared offline and into oblivion.  Does anybody have any news on that project and is it still in the pipeline?  "Pathways" states that it's:
...an exciting new programme which looks to create a variety of sustainable businesses, run by ex-offenders, based at St Anselm’s church.  The programme will include an 80 cover bistro and restaurant (inspired by our success at The Clink, the first commercial restaurant operating in a prison: the aim is to provide employment, skills training and links to accommodation for ex-offenders and local young people...
In other words, it sounds similar to the St Anselm Project... I'm wondering whether they've just recreated their website?
