** LATEST - Public Inquiry on 15th January 2019 at 10.00am **

LifeCare Residences want to turn our valuable green lung into a six-storey "luxury retirement village" with 82 flats, 15 nursing beds, a private swimming pool, catering and nursing facilities, no affordable housing, and unworkable traffic, parking and servicing plans.

Camden refused planning permission for this ludicrous over-development; and LifeCare have appealed against that refusal.
Your GARA committee has spent countless hours preparing evidence to help Camden defend their refusal and we will be there to cross-examine LifeCare and be cross-examined by them during the appeal inquiry.
You can make a difference: Come to the Public Inquiry on 15th January 2019 at 10.00am at The Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, NW1 1BD (2 minutes from Mornington Crescent tube); and allow time to reach Camden's temporary Council Chamber for a 10.00am start.
