If you are a local resident of the Pitshanger Lane area and you have been on holiday for the last month, you may not be aware of the plan to add two stories to the buildings on the South side of Pitshanger Lane.
The development is going to block sunlight on the street and is out of scale with the (protected) buildings on the other side of the road. At a meeting at St Barnabas Church Hall was packed with local residents with standing room only. Nobody spoke in favour of the plan.
Residents were concerned about the effect on the Lane during the two year (maybe!) Development. Businesses will go bust and the whole character of the Lane will be damaged.
The consultation ended on the 22nd August. However the meeting was informed that comments after that date will be taken into account until a decision is made. Lib Dems support the need for the communities voices to be heard and taken into account.
