Campaign against 344-350 Old Brompton Road

The current planning application for 344-350 Old Brompton Road (see our planning article for more information) has already received more than 70 objections, and a campaign against it has been started by a number or organisations.

The campaigners – who suspect that this is the first phase of a very big, dense and high development on the huge space left after the demolition of the Earls Court Exhibition Centre – ask people to object the proposed development because:

  • the proposal is too tall and too dense for the site;
  • oppose the lack of open accessible green space;
  • oppose the unacceptable amenity and child space;
  • oppose the harm to the area particularly the conservation areas and the Brompton Cemetery;
  • we want homes for residents, not rental housing.

The campaign is supported by:

  • Save Earl’s Court Earl’s
  • The Earl’s Court Area Action Group
  • The Boltons Association
  • The Friends of Brompton Cemetery
  • Philbeach  Gardens Residents Association
  • Earl’s Court Gardens & Morton Mews Residents’ Association
  • Earl’s Court Village Residents Association
  • The Kensington Society.

Those wishing to comment the application can do so via the campaign website or directly on the application’s page on the council’s planning application portal.

The public consultation ends on 26 March 2021.
