Comment on: MSMR's Battersea development given green light
'stories' in this instance is surely not correct. It is the plural of 'story' and only correct only if describing a number of story tales.
Storeys is the plural of 'storey' describing a horizontal division in a building.
Otherwise Julia's comments on lack of 'green stuff'' is so relevant. Perhaps 'greenery' would have been more descriptive (English for 'soft landscaping' ?)
The power of Ealing's very active community groups, together with the assistance of the local MP, should be acknowledged in achieving Crossrail's agreement to improve earlier proposals, following years of struggle against bureaucratic secrecy.
Lovely idea ! But what if the lift cage gets stuck halfway ? Lifts do break down occasionally, and in a normal building with floors every (say) 4m. passengers can be rescued from above to an adjacent floor, by rescuers on that next floor. In this proposal, there is no floor above and certainly no one to assist. Helicopters ? Health + Safety's comments should be interesting !
Let's hope that in this one instance, the 'powers-that-be' listen to what the community says.
AND . . . it must be less expensive to keep the skateboarders in the same location and happy ? They are an anticipated highlight of any visit to the S Bank.
