Tower Hamlets Council and Friends of St Katharine Docks Defeat "Harmful" Redevelopment Proposals (Early Decision on the New PPS5)

Meyric Lewis

In one of the first appeal decisions made under newly published PPS5, the Secretary of State has dismissed appeals against refusals of planning permission, listed building and conservation area consent for proposals to redevelop St Katharine Docks. The historic docks forms part of the Tower of London Conservation Area, described in the Tower Hamlets Council's Conservation Area Character Appraisal as "an area of exceptional architectural and historic interest, with a character and appearance worthy of protection and enhancement."
