.We'll be holding a short news and updates meeting in the LRRA hall at 7pm on 8th September in advance of the two forthcoming presentations from A2Dominion/Instinctif.
We're really excited to announce that writer and campaigner George Turner will be giving a short talk based around his experiences challenging developments. This will help inform residents in the run up to A2 Dominion's planned planning application, which is when formal objections will need to be lodged with Camden planners. We also hope to have a member of the Save Swiss Cottage group to inform us about the progress of their campaign.
We'll also be providing updates from the Save West Hampstead campaign, highlighting some of the many ways in which the proposals are counter to Camden's own planning regulations as well as being damaging to local conservation areas. We will also be requesting a little bit of assistance from everyone that lives, works or plays in West Hampstead to help in the fight to "Stop the Blocks!" at 156 West End Lane.
A2 Dominion / Instinctif September PresentationsAnother round of presentations is fast approaching at which A2Dominion and their PR firm Instinctif will attempt to sell West Hampstead residents four blocks and 200 units at 156 West End Lane.
They have totally ignored the many objections sent in by residents following the first exhibition in June. On 21st July, south-side Lymington Road residents were presented with the latest proposals for 4, 7 and 9 storey blocks, with heights and bulk increased through the disingenuous addition of an above-ground 'lower ground' floor.
Despite presenting these drawings only to Lymington Road south-side residents, it is abundantly clear that crowbarring-in approximately 200 units and many hundreds of residents into an area with such a small footprint will have a hugely negative impact on West Hampstead amenities.
