Urgent – walking/cycling gets the heave ho at KX Central

King's Cross CentralBehind King’s Cross Station one of the biggest regeneration programmes in Europe is underway: King’s Cross Central, developer: Argent. Argent’s planning application for the new Sainsbury’s HQ is with LB Camden and the committee meeting to consider the application takes place at Camden Town Hall this Thursday – very sorry for the short notice, entirely my fault.

One big problem with this unimaginative building is the complete lack of thought that has been given to pedestrians and cyclists – this seems to be a recurring theme in and around King’s Cross. You can help raise awareness about this by putting in a very short comment to Camden saying the pavements need to be wider and more thought needs to be given generally to pedestrians and cyclists using the new streets surrounding Sainsbury’s HQ.
