A theatre company’s £2.4m plan to extend a community room into a communal garden at a 1930s block of council flats has been given the go-ahead.

Youth theatre company SPID Theatre (Social, Political, Innovative, Direct) plans to refurbish a ground floor community room and build another one, which will take up about 10% of the garden space at its base at Kensal House in Ladbroke Grove, in North Kensington.

Officers had recommended refusing the plan at the grade II listed building, stating the extension “would materially reduce the important amenity value of the communal”.

The scheme was opposed by 42 residents. After over an hour of hearing evidence from objectors and supporters, Kensington and Chelsea council’s planning committee approved the plans and gave listed building consent.

Chinatown restaurant fire 'caused by unattended wok'

A large fire at a restaurant in London's Chinatown was caused by an unattended wok being left on a stove, firefighters have said.

Two people had to be rescued from the building in Gerrard Place after the blaze broke out on Sunday morning.

Some 80 firefighters took three hours to get the flames under control, with parts of the first and second floors of the building and a section of the roof being damaged.

London Fire Brigade's investigators believe the blaze was caused by an unattended wok which ignited oil deposits in the restaurant's ducting system.

"Whenever you are cooking, it's really important to keep an eye on it at all times and never leave it unattended," a spokesperson for the brigade said.
