What should puzzle a Talacre inquiry

13 August, 2020 — By John Gulliver

CALLS for a Town Hall inquiry into my exposé last week of the Talacre scandal may soon emerge among several councillors.

It isn’t so much the council’s failure to collect a “top-up”extra payment from the developers of the block of flats at the edge of Talacre Park, Kentish Town, – built and sold about 15 years ago – that should puzzle an inquiry but the suspiciously under-priced sale of the land for a mere £300,000 when it’s true value may well have been three or four times that amount.
