To unravel the hysterics lets just go back to basics.
Planning consents for developments over 100 square meters attract Community Infrastructure levy’s , Tower hamlets had released a revised charging rate up from 2015’s £200 per sqm to £280 per sq m, the charge is not a new thing and the potential increase is also effected by planning guidance on application of the charges weighed against the Affordable housing and other social and commercial benefits any particular Scheme offers to the community in which it is proposed.

SECRETARY OF STATE APPEAL DECISION - ALLOWED -

PERMISSION GRANTED.

TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990 – SECTION 78 APPEAL MADE BY

WESTFERRY DEVELOPMENTS LIMITED LAND AT FORMER WESTFERRY

PRINTWORKS SITE, 235 WESTFERRY ROAD, LONDON E14 3QS APPLICATION REF:

PA/18/01877/A1

Main issues The fallback position

16.The Secretary of State has considered the Inspector’s assessment of the fallback position at

IR417-419. He is satisfied that the site benefits from an existing permission for 722 residential units

(20% affordable), a secondary school and other uses (‘the consented scheme’). The Secretary of

State agrees with the Inspector that the consented scheme represents a realistic fallback position and

there is a reasonable 4 prospect this would continue to be implemented if this proposal were to be

dismissed. He agrees with the Inspector at IR596 that many of the public benefits of the appeal

scheme would be delivered by the consented scheme. However, the Secretary of State considers that

there are significant benefits that the proposed scheme would deliver in comparison with the

consented scheme, as set out below.

34.The Secretary of State considers, however, that while not in line with the policy

requirements for affordable housing, an increase in affordable units from 140 to 282

(IR583) provided by the appeal scheme as against the consented scheme is a benefit of

the scheme. In the judgment of the Secretary of State, contrary to the finding of the

Inspector, the delivery of an additional 142 affordable homes attracts significant weight in

the planning balance, notwithstanding the conflict with LonP Policy 3.12, CS Policy SP02

and THLP Policy S.H1. Further, notwithstanding the Secretary of State’s findings above

as to the housing mix, the Secretary of State considers that the additional housing which

the proposal would deliver is of itself a benefit to the scheme. While the Council can

demonstrate a 5-year supply of housing sites, the Secretary of State considers, for the

reasons given by the Appellant as recorded by the Inspector at IR191-194, that

significant weight can be accorded to this benefit, contrary to the arguments of the other

parties. Overall the Secretary of State concludes that the benefits of increased provision

of affordable housing and open market housing should attract substantial weight in favour

of the proposals.
