Hammersmith and Fulham Council Withdraws King Street Plans
Change of mind said to be due to "mass opposition"
Hammersmith and Fulham Council have withdrawn plans to redevelop King Street due to opposition from local people, according to a message sent to the campaign group Save Our Skyline by the GLA.
The news comes the day after Save Our Skyline held a rally at City Hall, which was attended by Chiswick resident Vanessa Redgrave, to urge Mayor Boris Johnson to block plans for the redevelopment of King Street.
The message said: " Hammersmith & Fulham Council has withdrawn the stage II referral until further notice. It means that the Mayor is not required to take a decision at this time. The application is still live and therefore it may be referred back to the Mayor at a future date. This will be at the Council's discretion."
