Evening Standard: "Boris Johnson decision on Earls Court flats 'is social engineering', say residents"


Link to web site

"Boris Johnson’s decision to approve the demolition of Earls Court exhibition centre and two nearby housing estates was met with fury today.

Residents condemned it as 'social engineering' which would force locals to make way for expensive flats. They urged Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles to call in the planning application and said they would go to judicial review if he refused.

"... The Mayor said he was 'acutely aware' of the concerns of some residents, but added:
"I’m reassured by the measures being taken by both councils and the developer, to make sure the needs of local people are properly addressed. [The project would] deliver huge benefits to the area and beyond, for years to come."
