The Open Spaces Society speaks out

The Society’s London representative, Bernard Selwyn, has written to Kensington and Chelsea Council to object to the Kensington Housing Trust’s planning application because of its effect on Athlone Gardens.  Click here for details.

From the Kensington Society

Basic concerns of the Society:

  1. in terms of equity, the residents deserve to get a housing mix as good, if not better, than the current mix given the upheaval they would suffer
  2. the Council’s research and their policy would justify refusal of the proposed mix – there should be a higher proportion of large flats
  3. a large number of the larger flats – such as the 3 bedroom duplexes – have two bedrooms below ground – is there a risk of flooding?
