Historic England calls for call in of London tower
In August 2016, Historic England called on the Communities Secretary to call-in proposals for a 25-storey residential tower at Somers Town near St Pancras Railway Station – a scheme already approved by Camden Council and the London mayor - which the heritage advisor claimed would blight views of Chester Terrace, a Grade 1 Listed row of neo-classical homes in nearby Regent’s Park.
