“It is horrendous and no one will want to live there just as no one wants to live in the current tower. Not a place to bring up children.”

“There is over development in the area as it is.
The towers are to high.
Colliers Wood is over congested enough as it is.
Public transport won't be able to cope with all these extra people using it.
The tower there already is to high as it is and is not even at full capacity.
It will cause an even bigger wind tunnel problem then there currently already is on windy days.
It will block sunlight for many of the surrounding houses and school.
Out of character for the area.

“We already have more than enough people is this locale. The scale of the proposed towers is utterly ridiculous. We have no need for any more towers”

“Over development, poor design, not in keeping with the area, density too high, local area infrastructure unable to cope with additional inhabitants, towers to high, massive adverse impact on local area and existing inhabitants: residents, businesses and schools......”

“It is not in keeping with the area and is a total eyesore. It is not good for the community in any way”
Elizabeth H signed this petition
“Colliers Wood does not have the infrastructure to facilitate this new building. Also how will the construction co pany be able to dog down so far without disruption to the northern line.”
Claire L signed this petition
“Because there are too many houses in such a small area resulting in regular problems with waste issues. Also the railway line runs underneath which surely can't stand much more weight or construction taking place above it.”

“Local infrastructure won't cope with the population surge these new towers will bring. The roads are full, the schools are full, the busses and tubes are full. St George's Hospital is greatly overstretched. The people living here will have nowhere to park and no outdoor space. The buildings will literally cast long shadows over the area and infringe on the privacy of existing residents. Additionally there was a caveat in Planning guidlines that said that no taller buildings would be built, so these plans should never have reached this stage.”
