Good news as Johnny Thalassites listens to residents and extends Planning Application feedback deadlines

THINKers did not get to enjoy any pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, and with Covid-19 and lockdown, there certainly weren’t any Mardi Gras celebrations round here.

Instead, along with several others , we were “flipping out” because the RBKC Planning portal of the website was not working, leaving many residents unable to send their responses in to the two controversial Planning Applications, with the deadlines looming.

Fortunately, Cllr Johnny Thalassites, RBKC Lead Member for Planning, Place and the Environment, did respond to both residents, local groups and concerned councillors, apologised on social media and has extended the deadlines.

– The deadline for responses to the Old Brompton Road, Earl’s Court Planning Application has been extended to Thursday the 25th of February.

Here are the details of the Planning Application:

Our blog will be posting more regarding our objections to the South Kensington Station redevelopment soon, and here is our previous post about it:

With regards to RBKC and responding to residents, let’s just say we’ve not always been the biggest fans of our council to put it mildly, but the good communication and quick response from Cllr Thalassites is at least, is a step in the right direction, so credit where credit is due and our thanks go to him for listening and responding to residents well over this. Let’s see more of the same positive behaviour from others at RBKC please.
