Hyde Park Labour Councillors Paul Dimoldenberg and Judith Southern, together with Little Venice Labour Councillor Sara Hassan, attended the Travis Perkins/Unite Students meeting with residents on 12th September at Paddington Works in Hermitage Street.
Residents once again expressed their strong objection to a massive building on the Travis Perkins site that would take away their daylight and sunlight. Residents also objected to the development of a 600-bed student block which would put huge pressure on services in the area. As previously, we will be supporting residents’ objections to these inappropriate plans.
We urged Travis Perkins and Unite Students to re-think their plans and not put residents through another year of misery with battles and objections to this unwanted development.
We are keen to keep Travis Perkins in the area and urged the company to come forward with scaled down plans to regenerate the site.
