Time for action to oppose Imperial’s tower

This is what the development will look like, from Oxford Gardens, within the Oxford Gardens/St Quintins Conservation Area in North Kensington, London W10.

Visualisation from Oxford Gardens

We have circulated all our members with details on how to help the campaign to halt or change the proposals for Phase 2 of Imperial West.

The deadline for comments on the planning application has been put back to March 8th.  We will be holding an open meeting at 8pm on Monday February 20th at St Helens Church Hall, W10 to discuss the next stages of our campaign.

For  information on who to contact to object to the proposals, check out our website page on how to make your views known

We have also updated the page on current planning issues for those who want to get into the detail of planning policies under which this application will be decided.  Details of the planning application can be found at http://www.apps.lbhf.gov.uk/PublicAccess/tdc/DcApplication/application_detailview.aspx?caseno=LWIDW8BI05Q00

Shadow cast by Imperial West at 5pm March 21st/Sept 21st

This plan of the area, from the Environmental Statement submitted by Imperial, shows the potential overshadowing of houses in Oxford Gardens and Highlever Road.  Late afternoon and evening sunlight will be lost for much of the year.

There are no existing tall towers to the west of Wood Lane.  No one wants a ‘Gateway to London’ built here.

Please also sign our petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/overdevelopment-at-white-city/    This calls on the Mayor for London and the Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham to call a halt to over-development of the White City area.

We need you help in supporting this campaign.   A series of massive developments, encouraged by Hammersmith and Fulham Council, threatens future quality of life in North Kensington and will destroy for ever the views to the west in this part of London.
