Kings Cross refurbishment – pedestrian lock out – have you objected ?

Kings_cross_station_3_7Today is the last day for objections so i got up early this morning and wrote the attached before work.  It has been hugely helpful to draw on the advice and help that has surfaced through this website – from comments like Chris below and from KXRLG.

So if you haven’t had a chance yet just go to this link click  ‘comment on application’ and say something like ‘this application will split a community in half, the impact of the closure of pedestrian entrances on the East side has not been assessed and the entrances shoudl be replaced or redesigned’

What next ? – Camden officers will consider the objections.  Lobbying will continue.  Cllr Convery has assembled a small group to meet with Network Rail next week.  Ultimately the proposals will go to Camden’s devleopment control committee.  Will keep everyone updated.


Some helpful news – Islington Council has put in a robust response to Camden after discussion at the West Planning Committee

‘The planning committee resolved that LB Camden be informed that Islington cannot support the proposal without an eastern access and that the development should be reviewed with the focus on the effects on both Camden and Islington rather than solely on Camden.’

This is good.  Thanks to Diana Shelly for spotting this and the the KXRLG for knowing the proper process to put objections into Islington early to influence their views.
