What on earth is the matter with councillor and ex-Admiral of the Fleet, Malcolm Spalding?
For residents of Earls Court, Capco and Urbanista are Public Enemies. So, what does the silly old sailor do? He asks these two hated organisations to sponsor the Earls Court Society Christmas shindig. And, it's not the first time. You can search Spalding on the Nest and see for yourself.
Spalding, has form for lousy judgment: he switched, in a New York minute, from being independent to Conservative and has a history of kowtowing to Capco.
A resident tells the Dame, "He has, without any authority, consultation or agreement by the Earls Court Society organised for their Christmas party to be sponsored by Capco and Urbanista.
De minimus, it's deeply inappropriate to ask the two firms, causing local residents great upset, to be involved in a community initiative.
Urbanista’s recent planning application, vigorously opposed by local residents, caused great upset and was then withdrawn.
Capco has a lot of coverage within the area and residents are very concerned about the spate of applications coming through,
As Spalding has now taken a role on the housing committee it is inappropriate that he be so close to Capco and Urbanista.
