Boris 1 – 0 Nimbys

Ministry of Sound tower block plans approved by mayor

Plans to build a block of flats near a central London nightclub have been approved by the mayor Boris Johnson. Developer Oakmayne will build 335 apartments and 65 affordable homes on the Eileen House site in Newington Causeway near the Ministry of Sound. The nightclub in Elephant and Castle had protested against the building as they feared noise complaints could force the venue to closure.

One thought on “Boris 1 – 0 Nimbys

  • I don’t agree with Boris 1 – 0 NIMBYs, it more like 1-1 after this ground breaking deal that will enable more development in London!

    Boris is pro development and this is right, NIMBYs are needed, would you say St Paul’s is a NIMBY?

    It will cost the developer a fortune to make the changes to design and the restricitive covanants will effect the values, as for the MoS they are far removed from being a NIMBY, they are a UK international landmark and it would be untenable if they were forced to close in order to build flats that average Joe cannot afford…
