I’ve just come back from the inquiry this morning where Martin Linton made a statement against the scheme (you can read the evidence HERE). I had the occasion to take a few photos, so you can get a taste. I might have the opportunity (more difficult: find the time) to give a representation on Friday.

In this photo, I coloured in blue the towers to put them in perspective.

Oyster PAYG on Victoria-Balham Services: easier but more expensive The Ram Brewery Inquiry in a nutshell

    Martin Linton’s speech was excellent and I can’t think of any point he didn’t cover well. Perhaps you are able to povide a link to it so other people can read it …Cyril ? It was refreshing to listen to the REAL reasons we don’t want it rather than those of Health and Safety (granted important) versus the rest.
    Let us hope the decision does not rest on exactly how BIG a potential fireball might be in the unlikely event of the gasometer blowing up! And then again the gas might escape WITHOUT getting lghted…and then again…but IF it DID 50% of the people in the glass fronted skyscrapers would be killed … I doubt if either of the inspectors or any of the development team or 3 QCs would live there as free gift!
    I have to say the scale model is beautifully done, and if anything makes visualising a catastrophic accident easier.
    And from the model, you can also see rather better than on the plans how tall and relatively too close together the other blocks are.

    On the other hand I guess it doesn’t matter WHY they turn it down as long as they do! J
