'PROFESSOR' COLERIDGE ON MANOEUVRES........
A resident association, close to Sutton Dwellings, pleaded with Tim Coleridge to include it within the Conservation Area....after all, the world renowned architectural academic, Professor Landow, described them in the following way:" Looking at the Sutton Dwellings in Chelsea suggests an additional point of some importance: the housing created by such philanthropic trusts turns out — in both architectural and human terms — to be far more successful that most later council housing. These buildings fit in very well with the Norman Shaw-built and inspired buildings of Chelsea and Kensington."
It's clear 'Professor' Coleridge disagrees with Professor Landow and the 11,000 residents who petitioned to save this remarkable piece of interesting, old and fast disappearing Chelsea.
Coleridge has already signed off plans to lay waste to the much praised and loved Malborough Primary School.
The Dame will soon explain why, all those months back, Cllr Coleridge refused to protect Sutton Dwellings.
It's all rather squalid....
