|HAPPY RESIDENTS CELEBRATE THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY|
Clarion calls itself a charity yet the only beneficiaries of its charity seem to be the mega paid senior executives who exemplify what Michael Gove described as 'crony capitalism'.
In the previous financial year, Keith Exford was paid close to £370,000 a year and his Executive Board close to £2 million.
One assumes that his successor, Clare Miller is getting, with perks, nearly £500,000 a year. No wonder the Dame is desperate to get her useless nephew, Ludo, into the 'charity business'. For a charity, Clarion seems reluctant to publicise salaries......
Sutton Dwellings sits proudly and happily in one of the world's most expensive areas and that's the only reason why the spivs at Clarion want to redevelop it. The rewards in bonuses for the key Clarion directors will be enormous.
They know and value the estate for what it is, and for what William Sutton wanted to provide for the poorer residents of Chelsea. The Dame has been shocked by the sheer volume of complaints about this greedy charity. Every expert body, including the Victorian Society, has stated that Sutton Estate is included in the Chelsea Conservation Area. At the full council meeting, the motion put forward by Cllrs Atkinson and Henderson will be debated demanding the Estate be placed in the Conservation Area.
For months the Leader has told of us that there is a sea change in how the Council listens.
This debate will be the litmus test of that sea change.
How it ever avoided this protection is a question that needs further research.
Please turn up to the Council meeting and also sign the Petition
