Amin Taha and Islington Council lock horns over Clerkenwell Close decision


Surprised at the lack of clarity over what had been approved. Earlier in the year I looked at the Islington Planning web-site and all the applications and was pretty sure the building had consent as it has been built (aside from lift over-rub & solar pipe, maybe). I note some of these applications and approvals appear to have been redacted from the web-site. It is new to me that if one has a planning permission then it MUST be built (employment floor space) Let's then apply the same logic to all that unbuilt but approved housing. As for the appearance of the stonework, surely just a personal taste matter, and why not make it all sawn faced ? Anyway, expect more vindictive campaigns by disgruntled planning councillors and judgements by the Ministry for Truth and Beauty post Brexit.
