The High Court hearing scheduled today between objectors of the King’s Cross development and Argent has been cancelled
The King’s Cross Think Again objectors say developer Argent has proposed a compromise agreement regarding the internal demolition of listed Stanley Buildings North, which it has accepted.
The High Court hearing came about after a judicial review into the way Camden Council agreed consent for the £2bn King’s Cross development was scheduled for the end of May.
When the date was set in February, a row erupted over the planned demolition of the grade II-listed Stanley Buildings North, beside St Pancras station.
Mr Justice Collins ordered that ‘in the meantime, no building which is listed or which may be required to be retained should be demolished’.
Argent appealed against this order and sought an undertaking for damages against the campaigners for alleged costs caused by delays.
But 10 days ago it offered to abide by the injunction before the judicial review, in return for being allowed to carry out internal demolition and salvage works to Stanley Buildings North.
It is understood that this is where a compromise has now been reached.
