This was granted permission at Stage 1
- despite only 4 Planning Committee Members voting in favour.
2 voted against (including the Chair) and 2 abstained from voting.
The Mayor's office has the option to call-in the application at Stage 2, as the 239 flats would be over the category 1a and 1c pre-requisites.
Referable Criteria Mayor of London Order:
Category 1C: "Development which comprises or includes the erection of a building more than thirty metres high and outside the City of London".
We agree that Chesterfield House would benefit from development that would add interest and vibrancy to our High Street, but 26 Storeys is far far far too much for our High Street. It is OverSaturation and will, in our opinion, cause unbearable strain on us existing Wembley people and the new people it seeks to house.
