TWENTY MORE BASEMENTS PLANNED IN HASKER AND FIRST STREETS

It now appears that Chancery St James are planning to dig out considerably more basements than first envisaged. 
They have applied for permission to dig out, in Phase 1, a total of 20 basements covering Hasker, Ovington and First Street's. 

The Hasker and First Street applications are for one new basement level below Lower Ground Floor and are being done as Permitted Developments and therefore not subject to public consultation.  

COMING TO YOUR QUIET STREET SOON
The applications for Ovington [which are listed buildings] are applying for basements below the garden.
In all cases Property Investments Chelsea [Chancery St James] are the investors. 
As they own even more houses in these streets expect to find further excavations over the years.
The sheer volume of the excavations has serious implications for the water table  and surface water drainage. 
As the foundations of these properties are weak we can expect some serious structural damage to nearby properies

    Obviously the whole development regime is out of control as Councillors continue to be asleep on the job. Reports, consultations and hand wringing are a waste of time. It is only simple language that everyone will understand. No more development in Conservation Areas. This means no extensions. No digging. No additions.
