Adam,

I nearly did not :)

i have worked with Assael Architects to deliver 900 units in Lewisham and they transformed the area, and happened to be carrying out a survey for Lend Lease today as they wanted to ensure that a subcontractor made some improvements for disabled people.

So I guess I think that development should be steered - but also think that some of the planning environment and planning conditions are nuts, and the developers are just having to work within those - for whatever reasons.

I am working on the redevelopment of King's Cross - 67 acres of it which is winning awards and providing housing, schools, universities, but took 5 years to get through because of objections about relocating (not destroying) the gasholders. Even though each building is at reserved matters stage, every new building has the same local groups fighting to prevent the development - each one of which takes the team more than a year to prepare and submit!

I do understand the local point of view, but ultimately am grateful that this site is being sensitively designed by a good developer and architects to provide a much needed overhaul of that end of the high street, and happen to think that the tower, being subservient to the Empire Office block and not blocking any key views, is the right place to put it!

But i also think that it is cool for valid objections to be put forward as all of the decisions are representative of compromises - some good, some bad - I hate what has happened to the hammersmith scheme, but that is a different discussion!

James
