Hampshire School is proposing to convert 19 Mallord Street, the old Chelsea Telephone Exchange, into a school with upwards of one thousand pupils. Hampshire School claims to be the world's largest private education provider and is heading for an IPO.
The big mystery is who is financing it....
|A SCHOOL? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING!|
It seems the freeholder is more enamoured with the idea than residents. They are furious with Sloane Stanley for even considering leasing the building for such inappropriate use-especially as the development will have a hugely detrimental impact of property values in the area.
A school of this size will create massive traffic movements per week causing chaos in a residential street.
The only way this can be stopped is for Sloane Stanley to act in the interests of Chelsea and find a more suitable use.
Richard Everett, the manager of Sloane Stanley, is a decent fellow and one hopes he will have a re-think....
