Chelsea residents, fresh from defeating the mega basement ambitions of a 'never here' Canadian cable tycoon, are turning their attention to a multi-billion pound developer.
This time in the shape of the Imperial Tobacco Pension fund. The fund has applied to knock down the much loved Daunt Bookshop in Fulham Rd and replace it with yet another boring eatery...Cote.
However, despite being recommended by Mr Stallwood's planners, the Planning Committee sensibly turned it down last night.
So, here's a question for Mr Stallwood....
The Planning Committee were so appalled by the design mediocrity of your recommendation that they threw it out without even giving it a moment's discussion.
Why on earth did you recommend it to the Committee?
What is it about K&C planners? They all seem to have been imported from Birmingham with all the grim bad taste associated with a city wrecked by developers.
Against the wishes of residents, Mr. Stallwood's team has recommended the destruction of this much-loved enclave set prettily back from the hubbub of Fulham Rd.
But it seems that residents are at last beginning to bare their teeth and are challenging Mr Stallwood and his team.
Rory Bremner is leading the charge and you can read his wise words here LINK
Of course, nothing gives our planners more of a thrill then cozying up to one of the world's most powerful pension funds.....so much more fun than dealing with boring little residents.
