As the demolition of the iconic Earls Court exhibition centre gets underway, residents remain in the dark despite their serious concerns about potential dangers to their health.
Despite requests, neither developer Capco nor the local authority have released to the Asbestos Survey and Risk Register to local residents. Residents require transparency in order to give them confidence that hazardous substances, such as asbestos in Earls Court One, are being dealt with safely.
Residents are also worried about the impact on air quality and on noise and vibration.
Yesterday, a cross-party group of Assembly Members, including me, wrote to the Health and Safety Executive to ask that these matters of serious public health are investigated urgently. You can read the letter here: Earls Court demolition – letter from Darren Johnson Nicky Gavron and Stephen Knight
