In June 2008 I blogged about The Liberty of Norton Folgate. It's a strange story with a stary cast that includes Tracey Emin, George Galloway and Suggs off of Madness. Baisically it's about a group of locals trying to save their pub from demolition as part of Hammerson's Bishops Place development in Hackney. Read all about it here. The story in 2008 had no ending, it was a work in progress, locals still battling the developers. However yesterday the revised application for the redevelopment of the site, which retained the pub went before committee. Did it get consent? Of course it did. Will it get built? We'll have to wait and see. In the mean time I suspect that every hour is now a happy hour down at The Light.
