Carlton Tavern victory for residents as planning appeal is dismissed

Carlton Tavern 2Maida Vale residents are celebrating as the planning inspector has dismissed the developer’s appeal against Westminster Council’s decision to insist on the rebuilding of the Carlton Tavern ‘brick-by-brick’ following its unauthorised demolition last April.

Councillor Rita Begum, Labour Councillor for Maida Vale, said:

“This is a great victory for the local community which has campaigned ceaselessly for the Carlton Tavern to be rebuilt. We must now ensure that the Carlton Tavern is rebuilt brick-by-brick so that it can continue to serve the local community.”

    Yes! What a victory – this case demonstrates that the WILL of the local community has been heeded and sends out a strong and extremely potent message to unscrupulous opportunist developers. If they had been allowed to set a precedent, then this kind of behaviour would become endemic!! Congratulation to all involved for your determination and hard work you all put in to reverse this vandalism.
