Kew Bridge Development Gets Go Ahead
Sustainable Development Committee agrees to St George's plans
Cllr Andrew Dakers addressed this week's Planning Committee Meeting with his view was that if St George's Kew Bridge scheme went to appeal, he was doubtful it would be turned down again by a Planning inspector, but the community would incur considerable cost.
His conclusion was therefore on balance that the community was best off accepting the scheme as is now presented. However, he urged Councillors to impose the following conditions:
1) A fair "Open book" agreement to deliver maximum social housing;
Items 2, 4 and 5 are supported by applicant and Council and 1 and 3 are subject to ongoing discussion.
A representative speaking on behalf of all 6 local community groups made clear their strong opposition to the development of 146 luxury flats.
The Eco-villagers intend to continue planting vegetables and making the Kew Bridge Eco Village a wonderful place to visit. If you have any advice for the Eco Village , comments or £250,000 with which to mount the legal case please feel free to contact them on the site phone: 07967864370
