BWCP is instructed to advise over 140 residents in the conservation area to oppose a development proposal. Having successfully guided the initial opposition, we made a new application for a scheme considered appropriate for the site. This was granted permission by Camden within weeks.
The developers nevertheless appealed their refusal and Brian Waters represented the LLP at a hearing where the Inspector upheld the refusal. The successful scheme was offered to the developer but they have chosen to make an equally unacceptable new proposal; this has been refused and a third attempt has been refused and taken to public inquiry appeal in December 2009.
BWCP gave evidence for the LLP supporting Camden and in March 2010 these appeals were rejected by the Inspector.
