CRASH looks forward to hearing from them, and also from the Conservative, Lib/Dem and Green candidates (and perhaps one or two independents).
Swiss Cottage ward is to have three new councillors come the Camden council elections in May, with Cllrs Nayra Bello O'Shanahan and Simon Pearson announcing that they do not intend to stand again, and the (shameful) de-selection of Cllr Leo Cassarani. The elections will be fought with slightly-altered ward boundaries and the name of the ward will change from Swiss Cottage to South Hampstead. The Polling Station where you normally cast your vote may change.
CRASH would like to take this opportunity to express its gratitude to all three ward councillors for their support and assistance over the past four years. We wish them well.
Throughout last year, Land Securities (Landsec), the owner of the O2 site, kept promising (threatening) to submit its formal planning application for the development before the end of the year. Recently they announced that the application would be submitted in early 2022. We await its arrival.
As reported last year (15/7/21), Essential Living, the developer of the 100 Avenue Road site, submitted an Appeal against Camden's refusal to permit changes to the scheme. The government-appointed Planning Inspector has now refused EL's appeal. The saga continues.
