Backdated from previous BA website
The planning application for Roger Street WC1 has been withdrawn. We believe the contractor for this service will propose a new site for this service in due course which must be subject to consultation with the local community and businesses BEFORE any planning application is made – and we invite them to do so.
The Camden paper on this subject, including the criteria for an acceptable location can be found on this web site at the link below.
The minutes of the 7 Dec 09 public meeting in Millman Street are here:
