Moment woman screams at councillors in planning meeting and calls for 'Al-Qaeda' to 'bomb' ugly building

A WOMAN screamed at councillors and said Al-Qaeda should bomb an "ugly building" in a meltdown over a new housing scheme.

Tempers flared at the Camden Council meeting in North London, as the furious woman grabbed a chair and lobbed it at horrified onlookers.

She shrieked: "It looks like a f****** prison when you see it. I hope al-Qaeda bombs the f****** ugly thing."

The woman was told to leave by an official before she picked up a walking crutch and made for the door.

But on her exit she shouted: "I hope you sleep well at night known that you have destroyed and you are destroying a beautiful town. How dare you. How f***** dare you."

In her fury the local resident picked up a chair and hurled it to the ground as she was escorted away.

She was one of several locals who were unhappy over plans to build new houses near their homes.

After the planning permission was granted, another woman screamed: "You b******s, you will be sacked."

She shouted: "You're turning this town into a sh**hole", and another cried: "you haven't even been here, you don't know how horrible it is."

The explosive video was broadcast live to Camden Council's website for the whole world to see.

The extreme reaction was after councillors voted in favour of building four new three-storey homes in Gondar Gardens near the site of a former reservoir.

The scheme would see cycle parking and bin storage for the new homes positions between a small patch of green land with two trees between Gondar Gardens and the rear of Hillfield Road in West Hampstead.

Marie Adie, who lives near by says the build would block her main source of light, making her flat much darker.

The Camden New Journal reported objectors were given five minutes to make their case.

Marie said: "It is shocking and appalling that the planning officer didn't even bother to do a site visit and considers the loss of daylight 'immaterial'"

"By granting this application the planning committee would deprive us of light – and the other three residents on the south side – and spoil our enjoyment of our home to the degree where we would have to consider moving out."

Cecilia Adie told how she had seen bats flying in "figures of eight" around the site, adding: "It was the most enchanting manifestation of nature I've ever seen."

It looks like a f****** prison when you see it. I hope al-Qaeda bombs the f****** ugly thing

Ward councillor Lorna Russell added: "The geometrics are a 45 degree roof, as well as the red brick which just does not blend with the frontage of the mansion blocks at this part of Gondar Gardens."

Conservative committee member Councillor Andrew Parkinson said: "It seems to me it's made no attempt whatsoever to fit in with local character. There's the red brick but also this sort of V shaped design which isn't something that you really see in the local area."

Camden's planning officers had recommended permission be granted in a report.

Their findings said: "The proposed development would occupy most of the currently open plot with a new three storey building. 

"There would be some impacts on residential amenities of neighbouring occupiers but these are considered acceptable on balance, and any harm found would need to be balanced against the scheme's contribution towards housing."

"Some temporary harm would be had during construction; however, this would be managed via a recommended Construction Management Plan.

"Overall, the proposals would deliver a good mix of new homes, with a high-quality design, and excellent sustainability credentials."
