How despicable, at a time like this, to try to demolish much loved and much needed social housing.
We know Exford, the £300,000 a year of Affinity Sutton is a nasty piece of work but the Dame would have hoped this grasping little man would have had the decency to stop this vandalisation of a wonderful community asset. 
Everybody in the area....poor, not so poor, rich and not so rich love Sutton Estate.
The Planning Inspector needs to back the Royal Borough which has made very clear why consent was not given.

  1. I better the hideous boss of AF is thinking he's so clever hiding it away during Grenfell tragedy

  2. Again , Hammering social housing tenants in RBKC .This has got to stop . Open season on us is over .Failed policies which do not include 'proper ' resident involvement - lead to 'Grenfell'.The perpetrators are now being hunted after years of corruption and mismanagement . Proper investigation need to happen . How did Affinity Sutton / Clarion get the Sutton Estate for nothing ? The residents on the estate didn't want it - but were railroaded by an unnamed Affinity Sutton employee who used to manipulate the residents committee - she sat in on every RA meeting and told them what to do . Was this of her own volition or was she promised a retirement pay off by her bosses . She has appeared on the Hornet before - taking pictures of Eddy Izzard and hounding residents who were opposed to the Demolition of the estate
