Sarah, you're partly right. The Clove Building, which is behind the Design Museum
and appears to be attached to it but actually has a different owner, has applied to add an extra two storeys. Permission has not been granted yet, as the consultation period is still open. Residents in Cinnamon Wharf and Coriander Court have been frantically organising to oppose the move, supported by individual councillors, and we are confident we will win.
James, I was planning to send you full details of this concerted local opposition later today, in the hope you could give us news coverage. Sarah's opening of this thread makes it clear there is considerable wider interest in this proposed development, and I'm sorry we haven't filled you in sooner
