Amin Taha wins appeal against Clerkenwell Close demolition order


Reading further, the Inspector required the practice to "tool the ’sawn faces’ of the columns and beams on the Clerkenwell Court elevation, which he said were ‘intrusive and prominent’." Is this part of the new Ministerium für Wahrheit und Schönheit ? (Ministry of Truth and Beaty). I thought Inspectors ruled on matters of law, not with their own aesthetic preferences. If Amin Taha can stomach another appeal, he should try to reverse that. At least just not bother doing the work. After Brexit there will be such a Shitstorm (German word) that no-one will worry whether some stone work somewhere has been chiselled or sawn. Just like Corb losing that competition because he used Chinese ink rather than Indian ink for the drawings.
