Essential Living plan to demolish the existing 100 Avenue Road building above Swiss Cottage Underground Station before all foundation plans are complete. Local groups commissioned and funded their own independent report by SDStructures Associates Ltd. which states that EL's "detailed design and assessment reports and outline method statements" are inadequate and that it was not yet safe to construct a 24 storey skyscraper directly above the Swiss Cottage Southbound Jubilee tunnel. I understand that their reports have been supplied to TfL. What is TfL's current view of the safety of these proposed works?

Transport for London's (TfL) Infrastructure Protection Team has reviewed Essential Living's proposed development, and the SDS report. It believes that the Essential Living proposals do not pose a risk to, and will not have a detrimental impact on, London Underground's (LU) assets or operations.

If the development is granted planning permission, TfL will continue to review detailed designs as they are developed, and works inspectors will monitor construction to ensure that there is no detrimental effect on LU assets or operations.
