It would seem that if you are stinking rich and rarely in London Mr Bore and his feeble Planning Committee members allow you to do what you wish....even though it means disrupting the lives of traditional, less well off, neighbours.
English Heritage always object to any basement under the 'foot print' of a listed building so why are they not objecting to this application? Well, it seems that because Muck's pad is tucked away so they didn't notice it! As the Dame's old friend, disgraced ex cllr and Mayor Barry Phelps was wont to say, "you could not make it up!"
The Dame encourages residents to email Mr Roger Bowlder, head of English Heritage, Roger.Bowdler@english-
The Standard have written a major piece about Muck's plans Muck to excavate the mud
Here's a bit about the FLICK FAMILY.....
Interestingly, one resident, George Barbour wrote plaintively that the project was “tasteless” and “environmentally hazardous”, adding: “I’m appalled by the council’s decision — but not surprised, as it’s always riding roughshod over residents’ views.”
Residents associations are putty in the hands of this council. Councillors have no fear of them. In fact, those that toe the line and do what they're told are even given £500 and a Gold Medal! Pathetic!
Resident associations need to get a grip and put up their own candidates at the next elections. That is the only threat this Rotten Borough takes seriously.
