  • Planning permission refused.
  •   A little piece of Chelsea's distinctive heritage is saved.
Located in a conservation area, 18 Britten Street is a unique corner shop built in 1810.

Plans by an offshore property company to destroy the character of a local area were halted.

Local residents and campaigners strongly opposed the disappearance of a historic corner shop.
Planning permission was refused by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Read the decision

"...a rather suspect investor based in the Marshall Islands somewhere in the mid pacific ocean..."  - Tim Gittos

Thank you to all those who contributed to this small victory:

“How much of the vibrant life of Chelsea needs to be dissolved...This situation is now critical. “

“ It would be truly scandalous if permission was granted “

“It is entirely irresponsible to take another piece of Chelsea history away from our London streets with no regard to history. To allow such destruction to be in the hands of modern planning developers of luxury accommodation instead of nurturing our heritage, is to rob future generations of their rightful inheritance in London. Too much has already gone. “


“I protest in the strongest terms against the proposal to replace the historic corner shop at 18 Britten St with luxury accommodation. Inner London community living will disappear altogether if cynical proposals of this sort are not opposed by councils with conscience and imagination”

“ This application has no merit”
