The developers, Hutchison Property Group (HPG), at Convoys Wharf have applied for Approval of Reserved Matters in relation to scale and appearance for Plot P15 (Phase 1). Plot 15 is for the construction of a building ranging from four to nine storeys in height with 124 affordable homes, 800 sq. m of office use (Class B1), 300 sq. of retail uses (Class A).
They already received consent to proceed with their detailed plans for Plot 15 at the strategic Planning Committee meeting in June 2020. This application is for some changes to improve the design. At the planning meeting, members of the committee objected to the separation by tenure that was created by putting affordable housing separated from the rented accommodation. It is now a legal requirement in the s106 agreement that they find a way to provide mixed tenure by ‘pepper potting’ the accommodation.
