18 June (Part 1) - Justice prevails, sort of

Devastation Devastation DevastationThe consequences of the unauthorised desecration of Lesnes Abbey woods by Kulvinder Singh’s ompany has reached another milestone. His application for retrospective planning permission (19/00194/FUL) has been refused after the biggest public backlash that Bexley Council’s Planning Department has ever seen.

Well done the McCann family for organising the public protest via Facebook and elsewhere. They have been given retrospective planning permission (18/03147/FUL) for the soil which Singh dumped in their garden changing its appearance for ever.

Not perhaps a good outcome overall but perhaps as good as could be hoped for.

Now let’s see Singh attempt to remove his concrete monstrosity.
