Defending Hammersmith King Street against the incursions of the wreckers ball and two soaring blocks of luxury flats, the actors Colin Firth and Ralph Fiennes have signed up to the Save Our Skyline campaign that was launched last year at a packed out church on King Street, so the Evening Standard reports.
At that meeting, pictured above and which I reported on here, Council Leader Stephen Greenhalgh professed his "hurt" at the allegation, made by a number of people throughout the evening, that he wasn't listening and that he was in the pocket of the developers - whose plans also involve destroying around a third of Furnival Gardens with a footbridge so that the dwellers of the luxury flats don't have to have the inconvenience of crossing King Street in order to get there. He then submitted the plan to developers without a single change.
Regular readers may remember the Council professed to be defending Furnival Gardens against evil Thames Water just months ago. How times change. And you may see more than one coincidence with the way in which the Shepherd's Bush Market development is being pushed through.
