Much delayed, and too late for the Easter break school holidays, the upgraded children's playground on Broadhurst Gardens is now open. It has a number of new features but retains the perennial favourites -- swings, slide and roundabout. Take your children or grandchildren to test drive it.
The ability to object, support or just comment on Landsec's application to develop the O2 Centre site via the "comments" facility on Camden's planning portal has now been ended. Camden extended the period for comments to 17 April, and again to 22 April. but the period is now over. However, residents are still able to make their views known to Camden by sending an email to David Fowler, the senior planner overseeing the O2 application, at email@example.com
or by post to:
David Fowler, Planning Dept
L B of Camden 2nd floor, 5 Pancras Square
c/o Town Hall, Judd Street
London WC1H 9JE
Please quote the application reference 2022/0528/P in your communication.
CRASH submitted strong objections (see earlier items) to the proposed conversion of Lilian Baylis House on Broadhurst Gardens for use as a private school. We are pleased to report that the school's application was refused.
CRASH has, over a considerable time, supported the residents of Swiss Cottage in their campaign to end Deliveroo's industrial kitchens (the so called 'dark kitchens') in what is a largely residential area. At a Planning Committee meeting last Thursday evening (07/04/22) Camden refused permission for the continued use of the kitchens. The residents look forward to seeing Deliveroo packing its bags and moving to a more suitable - distant - location.
