Tower Hamlets says series of hearings - including into Make and 3DReid schemes - has cost £950k
Tower Hamlets has admitted that “unusually high” numbers of public inquiries into major planning applications have cost the council close on £1m in barely more than a year.
The east London authority has recently seen refusals for a 49-storey Make Architects tower and a 319-home 3DReid development overturned at appeal by planning inspectors. It is awaiting the verdict on another inquiry into plans to redevelop the Sainsbury’s supermarket site in Whitechapel to designs by Unit Architects.
Other schemes given the go-ahead at appeal included PLP Architecture’s Whitechapel Estate redevelopment project and an apartment hotel at Aldgate designed by Grzywinski & Pons Architects.
