Earls Court Demolition Travesty

July 18, 2011 11:19 PM

Earl's Court Lib Dem Cllr Linda Wade joined West Kensington and Gibbs Green residents and local Lib Dems on Monday to protest at Hammersmith and Fulham Council's decision to contingently sell their estates for £15 million to the company behind the massive £8 billion Earl's Court redevelopment. The sale creates a conflict of interest for the Council since it will be determining the developers' planning application.

Lib Dem spokesman Meher Oliaji said: "The Council decision was a joke. Councillors didn't pay any attention to the petition or protests from residents. They seem to be trying to rush the sale through before Government legislation to help residents take control of their own estates can come into force."

Paul Kennedy said the small group of pro-development campaigners in white "Yes to the Future" T-shirts seemed confused: "Several of them told us they were campaigning to save their homes, so we thought for a while they must be campaigning against the development. They didn't seem to realise that they were being used for propaganda by the Council and developers who want to demolish their homes."
