We have submitted our objection to the Gondar Gardens Development


The planning Application for the retirement homes development in Gondar Gardens has been submitted to LB Camden. Closing date for objections is 13 December 2107. The application can be seen here.
The NDF will be objecting to the application citing:

  • its height, size and bulk;
  • building design;
  • inconsistency with neighbouring buildings and the local area;
  • overdevelopment in a congested area;
  • no affordable housing;
  • loss of green space;
  • loss of views;
  • the impact on traffic and parking
and anything else that comes up in our open general meeting on the 4 December 2017 at the West Hampstead Library at 7.30pm. All welcome.
