Planning Committee Rejects Developer’s Proposal
The Friends of Kensal Rise Library are very pleased that the planning committee have voted to reject the proposals of the developer.
We are also heartened, as many communities in England will be, that the Asset of Community Value designation helped to protect the building for community use.
We now intend to work with the council to assist in whatever way we can to uncover the source of the fraudulent support for the developer.
We are very pleased that the council is taking these instances of fraud seriously and will pursue, with the help of the police, their origin.
There are serious implications for local democracy if processes can be abused in this way, and serious consequences for the perpetrator as Fraud by misrepresentation is illegal.
Thank you to to those of you who came to the planning meeting last night and those of you who have worked so hard to make sure the proposal of the developer was rejected.
