Here are photos of the central London site proposed for the massive UKCMRI bioresearch laboratory project planned to handle "Biosafety Level 3" extremely dangerous pathogens in 79,000 square metres of building on 3.6 acres of land behind the British Library, alongside St Pancras International Station, 6 underground lines, near King's Cross and Euston stations and thousands of people's homes in busy central London. It would be estimated to cost £600 million and a further £100 million per year to operate, and the government have offered £220 million towards this at a time of brutal cutbacks.
The planning application process is underway and although the formal consultation period has ended, council staff have indicated they will continue to receive and incorporate as many as possible submissions from any member of the public regarding this proposal. Please see here for link to planning application and guide to registering objections/comments on Indymedia London website. A petition has now been started to oppose this - available on paper and online link here to online petition.
