Representatives from the Save Earl's Court campaign and Save Earl's Court Supporters Club were at City Hall on the 23rd of January, 2019. They were participating in the Examination in Public for the Draft London Plan on Opportunity Areas. The Earls Court Masterplan relates to the Earl's Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area. The Examination in Public process is led by planning inspectors appointed by the Secretary of State. We raised issues such as lack of resident engagement in the planning process - described as a "democratic chasm" by our campaign; housing that genuinely meets community need; the devastating impact the demolition of the Earls Court Exhibition Centres has had on businesses; lack of social infrastructure; meanwhile (temporary) use of the Earls Court Masterplan land which lies empty; and a review mechanism to assess failing Masterplans.
