Call for the immediate halt of the implementation of the Reserved Matters for the demolition of the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre.
Why is this important?
• The Reserved Matter conditions to demolish the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre in the first quarter of 2015 have been published and are to be decided by the borough of Kensington and Chelsea by 27 August.
The original planning applications required the consent from the two London boroughs and were jointly approved in November 2012. In May 2014 the Labour Party overthrew the Conservative majority in Hammersmith and Fulham.
This was a game changer…
- Since such time Hammersmith and Fulham have commissioned a review of all agreements and transactions associated with the proposed development and have announced a ‘pause’ to all dealings with the developer.
- The District Valuer’s Report, determining the value of the planning gain is being questioned, with the potential for a re-valuation of the entire site.
- TfL’s feasibility study on the relocation of the Lillie Bridge Engineering Depot is inconclusive as to its future and further investment has been made at this Depot.
- Tesco’s amended application for 100 West Cromwell Road
- The developers do not own all the land in Application 1
It is rumoured that the developers in light of the ‘pause’ in Hammersmith and Fulham will concentrate on the RBKC Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre, Warwick Road as a standalone development. This is against RBKC core policy and the impact assessment studies supporting the original applications will become redundant—this should be resisted.
If demolished this could be another Battersea Power Station—a ruin for years and a loss to the local, national and international economy.
