Portobello People Power supported by Planning Committee
The Dame was delighted to hear the following....
"On Tuesday evening RBKC Planning Committee voted 4 to 1 to reject the latest planning application to regularize the notorious plastic shopfront of All Saints' megastore on the corner of Westbourne Grove & Portobello Road. A considerable crowd of residents & supporters of "Save the Portobello Road Market" cheered as the decision was announced. "
The happy crowd then moved en masse to a nearby watering hole! Well done the Planning Committee for hearing the people
Another item of welcome news for Portobello is that HM Planning Inspectorate has announced its intention to take a closer look at the future of trading in the Admiral Vernon antiques arcade."
