28 November 2012 in Council and democracy and Environment
A Newham Council spokesperson said: "We can confirm that the Riverine Trust's application will be considered at a meeting of the Strategic Development Committee on 5 December 2012. Officers have made a recommendation for refusal which will be considered by Members sitting on the Strategic Development Committee prior to them making their determination of the application at the meeting.
"Our planning policies promote the development of the Abbey Mills site for a mix of residential, employment and community uses, to help create a new local centre near West Ham station and regenerate the area. It is not considered this application is consistent with these policies. There are also concerns about the size of the proposed buildings and impact on parking and traffic in the local area."
