Infill site approved for new terrace despite resident objections
Tower Hamlets councillors have given their backing to a PRP Architects infill-housing scheme that will deliver seven family homes on the site of estate garages in east London.
The scheme, drawn up for the authority itself, would require the demolition of 29 garages and the relocation of a play area on a 0.3ha slice of the Chicksand Estate, in Whitechapel.
In a report to Tower Hamlets’ development committee, planning officers said that while the three-storey homes represented a significant increase in height compared with the existing single-storey garages, the proposals were an “appropriate” response to the site’s surrounding three- to six-storey buildings.
