The old Dame, perusing comments, will often alight upon one succinctly summing up a situation.
This letter of objection does exactly that: unlike the silly nonsense produced by the Science Museum.....
"I can hardly believe the amount of PUBLIC money which has been spent on preparing this application.
It is made worse by the sloppy, illiterate and inconsistent reporting of the benefits supposedly of the scheme.
Is everyone cowed by the involvement of a Royal Palace?
No one is above the law.
And the law in RBKC is subject to CL7 and the latest SPD on basements. Only if the planning department and LPA want to drive a coach and horses through their own regulations and guidelines, should this application be allowed to go any further.
It would be a traumatic development to a Listed Building and a blatant defiance of the 2 storey rule to allow it.
Please refuse the application at the earliest opportunity and stop this haemorrhage of public funds.
