Still no news from Tower Hamlets Council about what they intend to do.
Tom Ridge from the East End Waterway Group has been going through the 46 page Justice Ouseleys’ judgment of 4th February 2011.
On Wednesday 9 February, it seems that the judge refused to suspend his quashing of the designation to give the Council time to re-designate the Conservation Area.
The Developer, Trilium, submitted a demolition notice on 3rd February 2011
Update at 21.30 on 10th February
We still do not know quite what is going on as the LBTH Press Office who promised to look into the Councils position or get the relevant department to respond after our inquiry at 09.10 this morning has not yet got back with any information.
Still unconfirmed by the Council but it seems that at the High Court yesterday (9th February) Mr Justice Ouseley said Tower Hamlets Council has until 16th February to redesignate the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area or appeal against the judgment, on condition that it pays Trillian £5000 per week to cover alleged security costs.
Also late last night demolition contractor’s boards were seen on 307 Burbett Road (presumably Trillian has submitted demolition notice)
