It’s crunch time. Network Rail have not changed their mind on locking Islington residents out of the station. The people who can change this are Camden Councillors and their planning officers. We need to lobby them by making formal objections to the plans. Stefan Schulte has set out how to do it on his excellent email list:
Go the the Kings Cross application direct on the Camden website by clicking here or if that is playing up go here and enter the application number 2006/3387/P. Then click on ‘comment on application’ in the top left corner and fill in the simple form – remember to tick ‘object’. Keep it simple – in your comment focus on the loss of residential or local amenity – it makes the area a much less nice place to live and work, the community safety impact, the impact on regeneration, the lack of consultation with the community and the effect on a listed building. Also ask for a foot bridge to access the station from Wharfdale Road funded by Network Rail from the huge revenue they will earn from having a new platform to charge train companies for.
IT ONLY TAKES FIVE MINUTES – YOU MIGHT REGRET NOT DOING IT ONE COLD WINTER EVENING WHEN YOU STRUGGLE IN THE RAIN DOWN YORK WAY PAVEMENT.
Please get as many friends as you can to object.
