Everything that is wrong with planning and development in London in one story. A better than 10 fold increase in land value simply because of a planning decision gone horribly wrong. It was absolutely predictable, as we constantly did, that once the permission was obtained he applicant would move on. The promised 'bung' to Council sports facilities which led to some in the Council supporting the project has already disappeared.  Agan predictably the promised 'affordable' accomodation will, thanks to loopholes in the law, almost certainly follow.  The one thing which led some in the community to resist less forcefully than they might have, the promise that the land would not be allowed to degenerate, long since thwarted.  No prospect even of a sad certainty and we will almost certainly see a new round of planning applications once a new owner is found.
