“ Yep, I went to Finchley nurseries yesterday and there was only a very small part still standing. I thought redeveloping meant repurposing the current 'iconic' (as it keeps being described as) building rather than. Demolishing the lot and building something with a vague nod to the previous building.
Personally I am not behind the Mayor of London's push to build houses and flats everywhere in and around and redevelop commercial properties into even more flats. We don't 'need more housing'... The government wants the extra revenues created by the building, the stamp duty, the council tax etc. Have you been on a tube train or driven locally in rush hour recently, there is no capacity for all these extra people. ”
