HAMPSTEAD Garden Suburb Trust has been accused of treating its freehold residents as "golden geese" after racking up huge legal costs.
At a fiery HGS Residents Association Council meeting yesterday visitors spoke out following a Lands Tribunal ruling against the trust in favour of developers planning to demolish the mansion house at 24 Ingram Avenue.
Trust manager Jane Blackburn had been due to address members of the association at the meeting but elected not to when she learned the Ham&High was present.
Fears are widespread that the scale of the trust's mounting legal costs could now lead to a hike in the management charge levied on freehold residents.
