Praise for Piers as the Camden case continues


I am dismayed at the non-factual slanging match going on in your magazine regarding the scheme at Fortune Green, West Hampstead (Letters, AJ 13.5.04).

I am aware of the site, the immediate environs and the appalling appearance of the current buildings on the site, and also the brilliant proposals by Piers Gough. Anyone visiting the area could not help but agree with me.

There are many benefits of using Gough's proposals, some of which are:

la hugely improved townscape;

lthe residential use provides overlooking and additional security for the park nearby;

lthe project would provide buildings of quality and architectural merit.

How is it that neither the planning authority, the council or Hazelle Jackson can see the wood for the trees?
