Planning History

The site was the subject of a planning application submitted in 2005 by the same stakeholders, which at the time also included Crisis, an organization providing support housing and the Tower Hamlets Primary Care Trust. The failure of the 2005 scheme to achieve planning permission led to a reorganisation of the client group, a new brief, and a renewed approach to the scheme and consultation engagement. The fundamental organisation of the masterplan and emphasis on permeability was retained into the new scheme with the main change being the revised massing of Appold Court whose raking roofscape embraced the Rights to Light envelope constraints and used it as a positive design driver. In October 2009 a revised application was submitted with subsequent amendments in May 2010. The project received Planning Permission in September 2010.
