Mayor of London
A public representation hearing was held in the Chamber at City Hall on Friday 10 March 2017, starting at 11.30am. Following the hearing the Mayor decided to grant permission for the application subject to planning conditions and conclusion of a section 106 legal agreement.
A planning application was submitted in June 2016 for outline planning permission (for the entire site) for a residential led mixed use development comprising the demolition of existing buildings and structures; the construction of buildings across the site to include residential (up to 505 units) and flexible retail or business uses (Use Classes A1-A5 or B1); pedestrian/cycle footbridges, modification works to the existing vehicular access and associated highway works; refurbishment of existing infrastructure (including provision of an on-site energy centre, if required), landscaping and public realm works; new servicing arrangements; car/cycle parking; and associated and facilitating works.
All matters are reserved for the pedestrian footbridges, Phases 2 and 3 Buildings and detailed permission is sought with no matters reserved for the Phase 1 Buildings.
The detailed component of the application (Phase 1 buildings only) comprises the demolition of existing buildings; the construction of buildings ranging from 16 to 21 storeys to accommodate 249 residential units and 307m2 (GIA) of flexible retail or business uses (Use Classes A1-A5 or B1); modification works to the existing vehicular access and associated highway works; infrastructure (including provision of an on-site energy centre, if required), landscaping and public realm works; new servicing arrangements; car/cycle parking; and associated and facilitating works.
During the application process the level of affordable housing proposed has increased to 30% with further details available in the application documents online. The application was refused by the Planning Sub-Committee on 1 November against the recommendation set out in the agenda. On 22 December 2016 Haringey advised the Mayor that we were minded to refuse planning permission for the redevelopment proposals for Hale Wharf.
On 4 January 2017 the Mayor notified Haringey that he would act as the local planning authority for the purposes of determining the planning application (under article 7 of the Mayor of London Order (PDF, 79KB - external link) and the powers conferred by Section 2A of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act (external link).
Revised plans were added to our planning application portal (external link) for consultation which ran until 20 February. The change removes the block that was proposed at the top of the site and redistributes the units in the remaining blocks in the outline portion of the site. The reason for this is that the Green Belt boundary at the northern end of the site is open to interpretation and the Great London Authority (GLA) Officers have taken a cautious view. As such the development has been moved south.
