News In Brief

Dealer loses out in planning wrangle

A Pimlico Road antiques dealer is considering leaving after two decades following a court case over the redevelopment of a timber yard in the area.

Humphrey-Carrasco is one of the tenants affected by landlord Grosvenor’s plan.

David Humphrey of Humphrey-Carrasco said: “Recent discussions at Westminster suggested protecting our designated areas of artistic/cultural distinction from future development. I think this policy can’t come soon enough. Sadly, for me, it is probably too late.”

Property firm Grosvenor plans to redevelop Newson’s Timber Yard, which is run by builders’ merchant Travis Perkins, after it received planning consent in October 2016.

Humphrey-Carrasco, interior design firm Coote Bernardi and Newson’s Timber Yard, which opened in 1845 and has been run by Travis Perkins since 1998, will also have to close and move to make way for the scheme. Travis Perkins applied for the judicial review of the planning consent in March in an attempt to stop the development. However, earlier this month a judge decided the original decision should be upheld.
