Further to your articles from Councillor Chris Knight and Tony Hillier of Heath and Hampstead Society; I would like to point out that the thumping noise of excavating machines, the possible damage to neighbouring houses, and the upheaval to residents working from home, coupled with the pollution from scores of earth moving trucks negotiating the narrow single carriage road, would create a daily living hell for residents for over one year of their lives.
