Those living within the vicinity of Harrods wish they didn't. Their lives and the value of their properties have been hugely and negatively affected by successive owners anxious to sweat the site for as much revenue as possible. Harrods cares not one iota for residents. Councillors promise-year in and year out-to do something about rickshaws, super cars, drug dealers, prostitutes, beggars, etc drawn to the area around Harrods.... but they do nothing.
In the meantime, residents put up with all of the above-plus litter and the consequent vermin infestation.
Now Harrods want to sell alcohol up to 11.00 pm practically
every day !!!
every day !!!
If RBK&C permits this it will do two things...
- Increase socially unacceptable behaviour
- Set a precedent for other stores in the area
This application needs to be fought tooth and nail. Please circulate the link The Hornet to EVERYBODY you know asking them to object to the Council in the strongest possible terms. This is the thin end of a very wide wedge. There is every possibility that Harrods will soon apply for permission to develop a hotel on the top two floors
