Brent & Kilburn Times: "Anger over plans to replace historic building in Dollis Hill with a 27-storey tower"

The password today is "sailor"

"... The proposals for the empty building in Edgware Road will see the site converted into a mixed-used development with 150 flats, a banqueting hall and a fitness centre with a swimming pool.

"According to a pre-application report which outlines the plans, 30 of the new flats will be affordable housing, which falls below the borough’s recommendation of 50 per cent.

"... Alison Hopkins, a campaigner and former Lib Dem councillor for Dollis Hill, told the Times:
"... The idea of a 27-storey high tower block in a residential area with two storey 1920s houses is totally unacceptable. We need real social housing for families, not yet more high rise luxury flats for overseas investors to leave empty."
"During the 1930 and 40s the building, which was known as the Admiralty Chart House, was used to house government and armed service workers away from Whitehall in the event of an attack in central London during World War II."
