Every time I see a picture of the building proposed for the bend in the river half way between the Houses of Parliament and St. Paul’s, I cannot believe my eyes:-
How on earth did a building of such ludicrous, over-scaled monstrosity get so far through the planning system and why on earth wasn’t it vetoed at Stage One of the process ? How did the members of the Lambeth Council planning committee possibly think that a building of this scale was legitimate right next door to the National Theatre ? Why was it not vetoed by the Mayor ? Today is the last day of the Planning Inquiry and I hope the Planning Inspector will say, which should be obvious, that it is grotesque.
