Gurnell development plans overwhelmingly rejected

By a surprisingly large majority of 10 votes to one, the Council’s plans to redevelop the Gurnell Grove site were rejected at last night’s (Wednesday 17th March) planning committee.

The Save Gurnell team has run a very effective campaign against these plans – which would have meant the loss of Metropolitan Open Land and over 150 mature trees along with the building of six 17-storey tower blocks.

Let’s hope the Council now takes time to learn lessons from this and works with local residents to design a more appropriate scheme for this site.
