Link to The Guardian

"A complaint that Boris Johnson's deputy mayor for policing and crime, Stephen Greenhalgh, may have engaged in criminal conduct, while he was leader of the Conservative flagship council of Hammersmith and Fulham, has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

"The complaint relates to Greenhalgh's close involvement when Hammersmith and Fulham leader with the proposed redevelopment of a vast, 77-acre site in the Earls Court area of inner west London by the property giant Capco.

"The Earls Court project foresees the demolition of the two Earls Court exhibition centre buildings along with 760 homes, and their replacement with a new 'urban quarter' comprising 7,500 dwellings and a promised 12,000 new jobs."

The Earls Court Masterplan

"Earls Court is a rare opportunity in London: the potential for significant regeneration in a central London location. The site is bordered by established, high-value residential addresses, including Chelsea, Kensington, Holland Park and Fulham. Established transport infrastructure including three Tube stations, a London Overground station and access to the A4 provide unrivalled connectivity.

"In June 2011, outline planning applications were submitted for the redevelopment of a 70 acre site, the Earls Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area (ECOA), alongside a detailed application in respect of the 7.5 acre Seagrave Road site. The applications set out the proposals for transforming this huge tract of land into a new London district based on Sir Terry Farrell’s Masterplan to create ‘Four Urban Villages and a 21st Century High Street’.

"In February 2012, the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham granted planning consent for the creation of 808 homes around a public garden square on the site of the car park on Seagrave Road. These homes will constitute the major residential component of West Brompton Village. Capco has a conditional agreement with the Kwok Family Interests to form a 50/50 joint venture to develop the scheme.

"In March 2012, The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham officially adopted the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which includes consideration of the planning application for Sir Terry Farrell’s Masterplan for Earls Court.

"As this is one of the largest and most important developments in London, the local community has been consulted about the proposals for two and a half years, through a comprehensive community engagement programme. Comments and feedback from a series of exhibitions and from the forum on Capco’s innovative, award-winning community website have helped shape the evolution of Sir Terry Farrell’s Masterplan."
