Don’t get me wrong, I love the Pompidou centre. But when Lord Rogers attacks Prince Charles for criticising his designs for the redevelopment of Chelsea barracks he’s on thin ice. And perhaps if local people had been listened to, the Chelsea barracks project would not have been shelved. Prince Charles is not breaking some kind of Constitutional covenant as Lord Rogers implied this week. He’s expressing his own views and that of many Chelsea residents, both rich and poor, who do not like the the plans put forward by Lord Rogers and his team.
