Crunch vote unanimously backs controversial 643-home redevelopment
Sheppard Robson’s controversial plans to redevelop east London’s Chrisp Street Market have won planning permission five months after councillors expressed significant doubts.
Members of Tower Hamlets council’s strategic development committee this week unanimously approved the proposals, which will see most of the area’s buildings demolished except for a core of groundbreaking post-war structures.
The decision paves the way for the delivery of a 19-building mixed-use scheme with 643 homes and around 18,000sq m of new non-residential space, including shops, cafes and a cinema for client housing association Poplar Harca and Telford Homes.
