|A THING OF GREAT BEAUTY|
The plan to build multi basements under the wonderful Hawksmoor/Vanbrugh Orangery at Kensington Place needs halting. Unless three objections are received the decision will be a delegated to the Director of Planning, Mr Stallwood....and that...we do not want... do we! So, the Dame says email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting PP/17/01414 and object on the grounds the basement construction......
- contravenes CL 7
- The embargo of basements under Grade 1 listed buildings.

This application is of such importance it must be democratically debated by the Planning Committee, not decided by developer friendly, Mr. Stallwood and, as one resident succinctly put it.... "A truly shoddy application. The 4 part Design Statement is incoherent and bitty. The application fee is £8,500 and the Community Infrastructure levy nearly £77k: waste of public money. The client is being led by the nose of greedy advisers: what on earth have works at St Martin's in the Fields got to do with messing up acres of Kensington Gardens? Shocking, and that's before you even get to issues of CL 7 and listed status."
