"Just a positive Newsflash that ISG applied to extend the working hours from 7.30am to 9pm Monday to Saturday but this was refused by the Islington and the City Planning Departments. So people were right to be worried, but the right answer has been…"

The City…See More

Mark Bostock commented on Sue Pearson's blog post ALDERMAN LUDER JUSTIFIES WORK ON COLPAI DURING LOCKDOWN
"The City had an opportunity of showing real moral leadership by delaying the COLPAI construction work during this difficult period of lockdown.  It has failed to do so.  It is clear that families confined to their flats with their children…"

"I wonder where Alderman Luder is living during lockdown? Not, I suspect, within 6m of a building site that continues to work noisily for upwards of 8 hours a day. Perhaps he would like to swap with me (if that was allowed) to experience first hand…"
