Well we know the difference between this scheme and the West ken and Gibbs Green one, Boris Johnson has no vested interest in Cressingham Gardens Community . However West ken and Gibbs Green sit on the Masterplan of Capco and TFL for earls Court and we know how hard Boris worked to make sure those plans to demolish the exhibition centres (which brought £1 billion per annum to the economy) and the demolition of two estates of social housing all went through, as far as a private table at the then Conservative controlled LBHF planning meeting with champagne whilst it got rubber stamped.
Meanwhile in RBKC a certain Ms Flight the planning officer threw her arms round Capco planning agents when their permission was passed, hardly the sort of behaviour one expects from a person employed by the council tax payer with an applicant is it ?
Bow Mr Malthouse passes one scheme but refuses another and lets see, he has had lots of chats with Boris lately and he is backing Boris and when Boris walks in to No 10 Boris will be his boss, a boss who still wants to see 7000+ luxury flats built by his mates (in the fully offshore scheme for tax purposes ) on earls Court and West Ken and Gibbs Green estates . is anyone surprised ? If they are they may do worse than look at how the exhibition centres were refused listing status initially to assist the demolition, who did the report and what connection did they have with Boris friends at Capco ?
The whole process smells rather nasty
