I cannot make the Planning Committee meeting tonight but some others will report for us on the website.
I have just spotted this article below in Wandsworth Guardian. It will add a little bit more pressure for tonight … 😉
Wandsworth councillors advised to reject 16-storey Clapham Junction hotel plan
7:20am Wednesday 24th June 2009
“Wandsworth councillors are expected to reject plans for a 16-storey hotel in Clapham Junction on Thursday night, just 48 hours after heritage group English Heritage (EH) said the area was “at risk of losing its character”.
On Tuesday English Heritage said 81 of 486 conservation areas surveyed in London – including Clapham Junction – were threatened by “neglect, decay or damaging change”.
The list is part of English Heritage’s At Risk Register, which identifies areas that have deteriorated in the last three years or are at a risk of doing so in the next three years.“
The statement from English Heritage they refer to is here (BBC website).
We have reported about the planning officer recommendation there.
