BALMOND BLOCKED MY BUILDING TOO
I was amused to read your story about Cecil Balmond's objections to a small residential development in Crouch End (AJ 29.06.06).
My modest proposal for a site on the other side of Chateau Cecil was met with the same treatment from the engineer.
Balmond acknowledged the ingenuity of the design in his letter of objection to the planners, but still insisted that the derelict garages on the site should not be replaced with a small Modern house.
