Residents First

Tower Hamlets People Network

Local residents, schools, community groups, amenity societies and businesses working with British Waterways, Tower Hamlets Council and others for the protection and beneficial use of the six mile waterway ‘ring’, its historic buildings, structures and habitats.



Following the public inquiry in February 2011 (EEWG newsflash 5 February 2011; Newsletter No.8) the Inspector has allowed the appeal made by Trillium (Prime) Property Group Ltd against the Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for the demolition and replacement of the former POPLAR EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE at 307 Burdett Road; and granted planning permission for the erection of a part 6 and part 11 storey block of flats on the cleared site.

In Christine Thorby’s report of 17 May 2011 she acknowledges that the Limehouse Cut “is an important historic reminder of the former industrial nature of the area contributing significantly to local distinctiveness.” And that the demolished former employment exchange “formed a cohesive group with the adjacent historic warehouses which are of a similar scale.”

However, the new building would be “in keeping with much of the more recent large scale, canalside development…” And would support the Council’s Core Strategy objectives “for regeneration and this would be of significant public benefit”.

She goes on to make the astonishing claim that the “modern, large scale blocks…contribute to enhancing the significance of the Limehouse Cut, supporting its long term maintenance and contribution to the distinct character of the area”.

This statement will be used by developers to justify even more “large scale blocks” alongside or near the Limehouse Cut and complete the process of turning it into a concrete canyon.

 

PROPOSED NEW LIMEHOUSE CUT CONSERVATION AREA

The public consultation (Newsletter No.8) more or less ended with a reasonably well-attended public meeting on 25 May 2011. Whilst there seems to be widespread support for the improved and extended character appraisal and management guidelines document, it clearly needs to be strengthened to limit the gross overdevelopment being encouraged by the Council’s Core Strategy, London Plan policies and the Planning Inspector’s astonishing claim in support of “modern, large scale blocks” alongside or near the Limehouse Cut. In particular:-
The former Spratt’s Biscuit Works and Violet Road bridge must be transferred from the Langdon Park Conservation Area to the new Limehouse Cut Conservation Area.

The former Spratt’s Biscuit Works and six buildings in the proposed new Conservation Area must be added to the Council’s local list, and included as locally listed buildings in the final document to be approved by Cabinet (see Tom Ridge’s letter, Newsletter No.8 Supplement).

Other Conservation Areas in Tower Hamlets have locally listed buildings and as “designated heritage assets” there is a PPS 5 presumption in favour of their retention and refurbishment. This fact is alluded to in the Council’s draft Limehouse Cut document on page 21, where it states:

“Some buildings… are Locally Listed by the Borough to indicate… that the Borough wishes to protect them.”

The proposed new Limehouse Cut Conservation Area has only got two small locally listed buildings.

The final document must also include more precise guidance to ensure that:

i) the surviving historic waterside buildings are kept and adapted for reuse.

ii) new buildings in the Conservation Area preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.

iii) new buildings outside the Conservation Area preserve the setting of the Conservation Area.

The Council’s proposed design code for “sites adjacent to the waterspace” also includes sites adjacent to the boundaries of the Conservation Area AND IS MADE THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY FOR ACTION (see page 31 of draft document)

Although the public consultation has just ended, it is vital that we all do our best to ensure that the new Limehouse Cut Conservation Area document is sufficiently robust to limit gross overdevelopment and require sympathetic high-quality development.

CERTIFICATE OF LAWFUL DEVELOPMENT REFUSED

British Waterways Marinas Ltd applied to the Council for a Certificate of Lawful Development with respect to its proposed water taxi moorings and additional leisure moorings in Limehouse Basin (Newsletter No.8).

The certificate was refused on 24 May 2011 (see here three-page document). The Council’s decision is partly based on its separate screening opinion that the proposed moorings constitute development requiring an ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (see here two-page document).

The EEWG hopes that the refusal will encourage British Waterways and BWML to reconsider their proposals for using Limehouse Basin and the Borough’s unique six mile waterway ‘ring’. As stated in Newsletter No.8, we think the Olympic boats or water taxis should be fitted with hybrid engines to minimise noise and pollution. And that instead of trip boats or party boats disturbing residents and destroying the relative peace and quiet of the Borough’s waterways, and damaging their biodiversity, there should be an eco-friendly, two-way (daytime) passenger boat service for local residents and tourists around the six-mile waterway ‘ring’ in Tower Hamlets.

We also hope that the Mayor and Councillors of Tower Hamlets will clearly state that they do not want noise and pollution on the six- mile waterway ‘ring’. But do want a daytime public passenger boat service as part of the Olympic Legacy; and a peppercorn mooring for the J-go education/community boat.

307 Burdett Road

307 LOST AND GONE FOREVER

April 1st 2011

The Council’s October 2009 designation of the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area was quashed by Mr. Justice Ouseley in the High Court on Wednesday, 9 February 2011. His judicial review of the designation took place over three days in November 2010, but his 46-page judgment was not issued until 4 February 2011. The review was initiated by Telereal Trillium and its ending of the conservation area effectively allowed them to demolish the former Poplar Employment Exchange at 307 Burdett Road. Demolition contractors started work on 17 February 2011, using a valid demolition notice from 2010.

Richard Buxton Environmental and Public Law, together with Alex Goodman QC, worked pro bono to stop the demolition and allow the Council to appeal against the quashing order. Unfortunately, Mr. Justice Ouseley had also ordered that, should there be an appeal, the Council would have to pay Telereal Trillium’s alleged security costs of £5,000 per week (during the several months it would take before the appeal was heard in the Court of Appeal). For this and other reasons, the Council eventually decided not to appeal.

Accepting the tragic loss of the former Poplar Employment Exchange, the Council was going to redesignate the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area, without 307 Burdett Road. However, on Monday, 9 March 2011, Telereal Trillium obtained a legal injunction preventing the Council from taking such a decision. Consequently, the Council is now having to carry out another public consultation. And officers have to submit a new report to Cabinet. Hopefully, it will not have the sort of minor defects which allowed Mr Justice Ouseley to quash the otherwise lawful 2009 designation.

PROPOSED NEW LIMEHOUSE CUT CONSERVATION AREA

307 plan

Planned building for the site of 307

Although the new conservation area will not include the one building associated with George Lansbury MP for Bow and Bromley (the northern part of the former Metropolitan Borough of Poplar) and First Commissioner of Works and Public Buildings (1929-1931), there are still several buildings along London’s oldest canal (and the adjoining part of the River Lea) to remind us and future generations that Poplar was part of the largest waterside industrial area in London, when London was the largest industrial city in the world and the greatest port in the world.

The Limehouse Cut must also be protected as part of the Borough’s unique six-mile waterway ring. Fortunately, most of the Hertford Union Canal is in the Victoria Park Conservation Area; the Regent’s Canal (from the Hackney boundary to Limehouse Basin) is in the Regent’s Canal Conservation Area; and Limehouse Basin is in the Narrow Street Conservation Area.

We must all, therefore, support the Council’s proposed new Limehouse Cut Conservation Area. The six-week consultation period has already started and ends on 29 May 2011. The new Character Appraisal and Management Guidelines document is an extended version of the previous document. See the document (and boundary plan) on the Council’s website here. Paper copies are also available in the Planning Reception at the Town Hall and in local libraries and Idea Stores).

PUBLIC MEETING 7 pm – 8.30 pm

PUBLIC INQUIRY FEBRUARY 2011

As well as seeking a judicial review of the Council’s October 2009 designation of the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area, Telereal Trillium appealed to the Planning Inspectorate against the Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for the demolition and replacement of the former Poplar Employment Exchange at 307 Burdett Road. The five-day inquiry was held at the Town Hall on 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8 February 2011 (see EEWG newsflash 5 February 2011).

As one of the Council’s main reasons for refusal was the fact that 307 made a positive contribution to the conservation area, we thought the inquiry should have been held after Mr. Justice Ouseley’s judgment on the legality of the Council’s October 2009 designation of the conservation area. In the event, his 46-page judgment was released on the fourth day of the five-day inquiry.

All parties await the Inspector’s decision, but the preemptive demolition of 307 leaves the Inspector with only one choice: to permit the erection of the proposed replacement building or leave the site vacant. Furthermore, as part of the proceedings at such inquiries, the Council and Telereal Trillium have agreed on the conditions to be attached to a planning permission should this be granted by the Inspector.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE COUNCIL’S NEW LIMEHOUSE CUT CONSERVATION AREA TO ENSURE THAT

  • ITS SURVIVING HISTORIC WATERSIDE BUILDINGS ARE KEPT AND ADAPTED FOR REUSE
  • NEW BUILDINGS OUTSIDE ITS BOUNDARIES PRESERVE THE SETTING OF THE NEW CONSERVATION AREA

1934 DATE BLOCK SAVED

At our request, and with the support of Jim Fitzpatrick MP, Telereal Trillium instructed the demolition contractors to save the building’s 1934 date block. The block was carefully salvaged, and together with the contemporary Dod Street sign, was collected by senior planning officers and delivered on Wednesday, 27 April 2011, to the Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives on Bancroft Road.

As a public building designed and erected by His Majesty’s Office of Works, the Dod Street wall of the former Poplar Employment Exchange contained a moulded terracotta date block, bearing the opening date of 1934, and the King George V monogram with crown.

LIMEHOUSE MARINA

In February 2011, British Waterways Marinas Ltd applied to the Council for a CERTIFICATE OF LAWFUL DEVELOPMENT on the grounds that:

  • proposed water taxi moorings are permitted development (see Newsletter No 7)
  • proposed additional leisure moorings accord with the layout attached to a 1994 section 106 agreement between the former London Docklands Development Corporation and British Waterways Board.

The Council has still to decide to grant or refuse the certificate. One of the many issues is whether or not BWML should have to carry out an environmental impact assessment. We believe that at the very least there should be an assessment of noise and pollution impacts on the whole of Limehouse Basin and the Limehouse Cut and the River Lea (the water taxis are to run between the Basin and the Olympic Park). All we know is that there are to be six water taxis moored in front of the four blocks of flats known as Marina Heights; and that BWML’s consultants say that there is no requirement for an environmental impact assessment.

As stated in previous newsletters, we are in favour of an Olympic boat service in 2012, provided that the boats or taxis are fitted with hybrid engines to minimise noise and pollution. And that instead of trip boats or party boats disturbing residents and destroying the relative peace and quiet of the Borough’s waterways, there should be a two-way (daytime) public passenger boat service for local residents and tourists around the six-mile waterway ‘ring’ in Tower Hamlets.

Unfortunately, the planners can only operate within the constraints of the planning system, and it is up to the Mayor and Councillors of Tower Hamlets to tell BWML (and others) that they do not want noise and pollution on the Borough’s waterways. But do want a daytime public passenger boat service as part of the Olympic legacy.

Update at 21.30 on 13th February

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.

More news to follow but it seems the “concrete canyon” may be on hold again.

See East London Advertiser here.

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)

barriser

Finally news from the judicial review held on 11th, 12th and 15th November at the Administrative Court Office – Mr Justice Ouseley has delivered his verdict and overturned London Borough of Tower Hamlets designation of the Limehouse Cut as a Conservation Area. This news comes as the Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State aproaches the end of the appeal by Indigo Planning on behalf of Telereal Trilium and Telereal (Prime) Property Group Ltd against the Council’s refusal of planning applications ref. PA/09/214 & PA/10/510 .
Consequently, the former POPLAR EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE will almost certainly be demolished and several other buildings in the construction area would be under threat and possibly demolished for tall blocks of flats. Most of the historic canalscape on London’s oldest canal would be lost and the canal would become a sunless concrete canyon.

Limehouse Cut Conservation Area


“There is no doubt that the Poplar Employment Exchange has strong local value and is an important East London landmark. If this were a Conservation Area, the dignified neo-Georgian elevations and historic interest of Poplar Employment Exchange would make a positive contribution to its character.”

JUDICIAL REVIEW 11, 12 & 15 November 2010 – UPDATE – THE TRIAL FINISHED ON MONDAY 15th  STILL NO VERDICT!

Walk from Temple tube station

barriserTrillium (Developers) made two planning applications for the demolition of the former POPLAR EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE at 307 Burdett Road, and both were refused by Tower Hamlets Council. One of the reasons for refusing the 2009 application for demolition and replacement by an 11-storey block of flats was that the building makes a positive contribution to the character and appearance of the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area. Trillium responded by starting judicial review proceedings in the High Court against the Council’s designation of the conservation area, with a view to having it quashed.

The judicial review will be held on 11 and 12 November at the Administrative Court Office – COURT 2 – by MR JUSTICE OUSELEY

Should Trillium win in the High Court, the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area would be revoked. Consequently, the former POPLAR EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE, and several other buildings in the construction area, would almost certainly be demolished for tall blocks of flats. Most of the historic canalscape on London’s oldest canal would be lost and the canal would become a sunless concrete canyon.

307 Burdett Road

Click image to see full size

On Monday, 25 October 2010 the East End Waterway Group patron Jim Fitzpatrick MP, local historian Tom Ridge and concerned residents delivered a petition with over 900 signatures to Telereal Trillium, the present owners of the POPLAR EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE at 307 Burdett Road to ask them to:-.

allow the retention and adaptation of the former Poplar Employment Exchange at 307 Burdett Road as a training and social enterprise centre for unemployed local people, called the LANSBURY CENTRE

Trillium have made two planning applications for the demolition of the local landmark, and both were refused by Tower Hamlets Council. They have plans to build an 11 storey 56 flat complex on the site.

They are now seeking a judicial review of Tower Hamlets Council’s designation of the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area which will be held on 11th and 12th November at the Administrative Court, The Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2.





Local residents concerns.

  • Residents are extremely concerned by the high density of the development which is far above the London Plan and that the character of the building would not be in line with existing buildings in the area. Existing buildings would be overlooked by windows and balconies, including the communal garden and children’s play area proposed for the top of the six storey block and sunlight/daylight in these existing buildings would be affected.
  • Residents are also concerned by the potential level of noise nuisance from the restaurant/bar and shops on the ground floor, as they would exacerbate the existing levels of noise, parking, traffic congestion and pollution already in Burdett Road. Also noise from mechanical plant to be used in the buildings would add to this.
  • The development provides too few affordable flats and this did not justify the loss of such an historic local building. The building should be retained and locally protected and remain a memorial to George Lansbury and his campaign against poverty and unemployment.

The councils reasons to refuse the previous application.

  • The proposed development, by virtue of its inappropriate scale, massing, density and design would result in a built form out of keeping with the existing street scene which would fail to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area.
  • The proposed development would result in unacceptable loss of daylight and sunlight to nearby residential properties.
  • The contribution towards education is insufficient to mitigate against the impact of the development.
  • The introduction of a new A3 or A4 use (i.e. retail) at this location on Burdett Road would have an unacceptable impact on neighbouring properties in terms of an unacceptable increase in late-night noise, disturbance and general activity in the locality.
  • The child play space and amenity area in the development is inadequate and inappropriately located to meet the needs of future residents
