UKCMRI development committee hearing and PROTEST Thursday December 16
Camden council’s development committee will be meeting at the Town Hall (in Judd Street, just off Euston Road) to consider the application to build the UKCMRI lab on the land behind the British Library on Thursday, December 16, starting at 7pm.
SPA, representing local residents, will be holding a PROTEST starting at 6pm on the town hall steps to demonstrate the strong local (and general) opposition to the plan.
St Pancras and Somers Town Planning Action (SPA) opposes the plan because:
* the land is zoned for 50% housing and yet none is being provided
* the building is far too large and bulky for the site and will block the light of many residents
* there are grave safety concerns about dangerous viruses being handled right at a central transport hub
Show your opposition by coming to the protest, and if you can stay to listen to the hearing. From 6pm – bring a sign or placard if you can, or just yourself!
