Camden Saved!

Camden Market, The Electric Ballrom, et al, have all had a reprieve as John Prescott rejected p[lans by London Underground for its planned £100 million redevelopment of the area. The rejection came after a five-month public inquiry and John Prescott said that the plans would have had a devastating impact on the character and apperence of the area and would be detrimental to viability and vitality of Camden Town.

It's good to see Camden saved and not turned into another generic shopping district. It's also good that the Elecrtic Ballroom has been saved - all they now need to do is start putting on a decent club night again!

I do feel a bit sad for ukmonty though as he really had his heart set on pressing the button to start demolishing the Ballroom. Nevermind, maybe in 30 years or so :p
