SNIP need support

Information has reached Hornet, in a roundabout sort of way, about a campaign group set up to fight plans for the new Iranian Embassy in South Kensington reported earlier right here. The Group called SNIP (Stop New Iranian Embassy Plan) gathered at the Town Hall last week to rally against plans to build the modernist embassy on the site of a multi-storey car park.

Neighbours of the site have complained to the Council that the plans are large and out-of keeping with the surrounding area. The group is objecting to the plans for a new embassy on several grounds.
It believes that the modern design is out of keeping with the surrounding 19th century architecture, and particularly St Augustine's Church, which is just 20ft away.

SNIP, and Hornet urges people to look at the plans on the website of the council here and to register your views accordingly.

  1. Cockell has terrible judgment.
    The idea of allowing this medieval and barbaric regime to by pass public opinion so as to be able to build it's monstrosity beggars belief.
    After 10 years + in the job time he stepped aside allowed someone with commonsense to take over.
    We do not expect our councillors to kowtow to this bunch of murderers of gay people and adulterers.
    I am astonished that Cockell nor Ward councillors have not had the manners to respond to residents: but maybe I should not be surprised !
