I have been vociferously against Westminster City Council for many years especially since the gerrymandering and cemetry sell-off by that Tesco woman but I think they have got this one right although it sticks in my craw to say so.
Lambeth are not allowing the building to go ahead for any other reason than the amount of rates it will bring in, the higher the building the more rates they get.
It doesn't matter how many people will be employed there most of them will live without the borough and thus commute, a lot will be immigrants and the vast majority will spend little or nothing locally so from a personal view I opposed the original plans. No gain to me and mine from the doubtful promises of a Lambeth Council
and planning department which I believe to be corrupt.
