A decision on controversial plans to turn a Grade II-listed Hampstead wildlife oasis into an underground car park and 156 new homes has been adjourned after Camden planners ran out of time to consider the application.
Protesters who gathered at Camden Town Hall to object to the scheme will now have wait until February 25th when the application will be considered.
As reported in the Ham&High television presenter Esther Rantzen and actor Tom Conti joined a previous protest against plans to turn a Grade II-listed Hampstead wildlife oasis into an underground car park and housing development.
More than 200 people have signed a petition to halt the scheme on the former King’s College site in Kidderpore Avenue.
The site, which currently houses five Grade II-listed buildings stands in two acres of green space with mature trees and shrubs. The land has been listed by Camden as a site of Interest for Nature Conservation (SINC).
