WILL they? Or won’t they? The signs are that the Town Hall will not impose the £5,000 legal costs the High Court judge awarded against Slaney Devlin who failed in her bid to stop Camden Council from building a 25-storey tower in Somers Town.

Aware of public support for Slaney Devlin, the Town Hall may be having second thoughts about making her pay court costs.

At a meeting on Tuesday evening held by HS2 officials about the impact the railway scheme will have on local families, the council’s regeneration chief Phil Jones – responsible for the proposed skyscraper project – left without talking to Slaney Devlin about the judge’s ruling.
