I suppose I should offer some comment on the Queensbury decision, as it has aroused so much controversy. I am somewhat constrained in what I can say as it may be that
Fair view (the applicant) may take legal action.
I voted against the application. My principal reason is that a ten storey building in an aggressively modern style in Mapesbury Conservation Area seems a bit much. In the past, I have sat on lots of Mapesbury applications. I recall one lengthy discussion on the design and composition of stained glass in private houses in particular.
The Queensbury application just seemed so dramatically out of kilter.
