Amin Taha wins appeal against Clerkenwell Close demolition order


The Inspector's decision is welcome and must be a huge relief for the architect owner and local community. The decision though does not give the architect back his time and expense fighting a needless and controversial decision. Islington Council need to be held responsible financially and obliged to compensate the architect for all the damage this has caused and the individuals within the Council need to resign for their wrong interpretation of planning law and for wasting public funds in fighting this case. Maybe the architect could "crowd-fund" the legal costs of taking action against the Council - not just for their wrongful actions but also the resultant damage to the architects reputation and commercial standing.
