Campaigners have renewed calls for support after a council plan to turn a former Kensington care home into a car park went to public consultation.
Last year, the Edenham Residential Care Home in Elkstone Way, North Kensington, was closed by Kensington and Chelsea Council - despite a storm of residential opposition. It had housed generations of elderly North Kensington residents in the shadow of Trellick Tower.
The Edenham buildings were demolished earlier this year and now a planning application has been lodged to turn the deserted site into a minibus car park.
It would be used for a disabled people's transport service, which is being moved from its current home in Hortensia Road, Chelsea, due to the building of the Chelsea Academy school.
Friends of Edenham campaigner Ann French, who is disabled, said: "This has nothing to do with disabled children, but the minibuses they use. It may be OK legally, but morally this is wrong.
"I just hope the ghosts that must haunt Edenham don't creep out at night and nobble their buses."
Cllr Emma Dent Coad (pictured) (Lab), who once chained herself to Edenham railings in protest against the plans, added: "Nobody wants minibuses here. They must go elsewhere, far from people's homes, like the gasworks site in Kensal Green.
The application includes proposals for lights at 9 metres intervals around the site. The landscaped gardens are set to remain. Around 30 vehicles would use the car park during term times, with numbers swelling to 60 in the school holidays until December 2010.
Residents who want their views to form part of the consultation must submit comments to Kensington and Chelsea Council by November 14. The application is expected to go before a planning committee later this year.
A Kensington and Chelsea Council spokesman said: "In a letter to local residents, the council says the site will be temporarily used by Crystal Coaches, an organisation that provides transport for children and young people with special needs who live in the borough.
"The Council will be seeking temporary planning permission for Crystal Coaches to use the site for about 18 months from April 2009 until September 2010."
