Please say no to the renewed Sainsbury/Wilmer Place development
Hackney Council, you rejected the original application for an overdevelopment of the Wilmer Place site, earlier this year. it was inappropriate because of it's impact on the character of the area, it was an inappropriate development in a conservation area and it threatened the amenity and biodiversity of the adjoining Abney Park Cemetary. Now the developer is back with an application which is virtually identical (2013/1583 and 2013/1584).
It would be perverse to pass a virtually identical scheme to one rejected just months earlier.
We call on you to stand strong and reject this development as well.
