Wandsworth Council is putting on a series of Public Exhibitions to breathe new life into The Nine Elms Cycle Bridge which many had thought to be dead in the water after failing to gain any support from The Mayor of London and following Westminster City Council’s stinging examination of the proposition.
The 84 Eccleston Square Campaign Team has won the latest round in their battle to stop the demolition of a corner of their Square and development of a lackluster aparthotel-style block. The developers say they will redesign the development to keep the Cubitt-style facade and reduce its impact on this historic London Square.
From the 84 Eccleston Square Campaign Team:
Eccleston Square Residents Association (ESRA) has spearheaded a campaign to contest the proposed redevelopment of 84 Eccleston Square on aesthetic, conservation, environmental and social grounds. Supported by ward councillors Nickie Aiken and Jacqui Wilkinson they elicited 160 letters of objection to the proposal. A 5Fields survey showed overwhelming opposition to the project – see ’84 Eccleston Square demolition opposed by residents’ (June 2015). Numerous meetings and discussions took place during 2015, and the developers realized that their plans would not be granted planning consent by Westminster Council, with the level of objection that had been shown.
Westminster City Council Scutiny Committee is examining the Nine Elms Bridge. It’s the first meeting of Westminster’s Public Inquiry into the Proposed Nine Elms Bridge at Westminster City Hall and will help to set the agenda for the way it unfolds.
