Launched by a cross sectional group of residents it accepts though there is now greater control over mega basements the council has much work to do to ensure basement developers are properly controlled.
And remember, it was resident pressure, notably from Dr James Thompson, that forced the council to act on 'iceberg' basements....
"We are a group of residents who have lived through years of disruption from basement developments in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. Our streets have been chaos; our homes have been unliveable; we have suffered noise, vibration, damage, dust.
Whatever the individual circumstances, our common experience is that the Council has been little help to us.
They have failed to reduce the disruption and maintain our amenity, despite this being (in the words of Cllr Tim Coleridge) the single biggest issue of concern for residents ever experienced".
