It's second time lucky for Hammersmith. Last night Helical Bar's mixed use Kings Street regeneration got planning.
Despite 1,000 objections and 8,500 signatures on a petition the council approved plans. It will now feel like a hollow victory for protesters that managed to get both Helical Bar and the council to rethink plans last year - that took three, clearly well spent, years of consultation.
Here is how the scheme will now look. Below is how it looked last year. How would you feel if you were a Hammersmith resident? Better, worse? And what does it say for the localism debate?
