A few weeks ago the Mayor for London asked that aspects of the Imperial West proposals be reviewed. Andrew Slaughter, MP for Hammersmith has submitted a letter of objection, which he has agreed we can publish here Andy Slaughter Imperial_Woodlands_Objection
This week, planning officers at RB Kensington & Chelsea have published the council’s draft ‘observations‘ on the Imperial West Planning application. These will be discussed at the council’s Planning Applications Committee on April 3rd, before being sent on to Hammersmith & Fulham.
RBKC officers have raised a number of concerns about the scheme, and share our view that Building D appears to be little more than an office building of a design (at 12 storeys) more suited to central London. RBKC also views the tower as a building which ‘lacks the outstanding quality and silhouette required of a standalone building of this scale.’ The council will be submitting formal objections to Hammersmith & Fulham.
We hope that RBKC councillors, having considered the report, will make their views known forcefully to their colleagues at LBHF.
