New plans discussion meeting on Tuesday, 12th. December 2017 @ 19:00 hours.
Chris Keys has submitted the following invite to residents via Change org.
The developers have now submitted a new set of plans for the chest hospital. initial reports indicate that the developers have ignored the main concern of local residents (the height of the new buildings) and have actually increased the height of the tallest tower at the Bonner Bridge end of the site.
Due to concerns about the accessability of the first set of plans and about the biased PR events the developers have staged we will be holding a drop in session at the glasshouse This Tuesday the 12th from 19:00 – 21:00. Where the submitted plans will be available to view.
Council Officers Gareth Gwynne and Simon Westmorland have agreed to attend in order to answer questions that you may have in relation to the proposals. They will not be there to present the proposals but rather they would be on hand to answer queries you may have in understanding the application documents.
It is also important to bear in mind that they will not be able to answer questions about the Council’s opinion/recommendation for the application given that it would not be proper for them to do so prior to the close of the consultation period. The purpose of their attendance would be to answer queries in relation to the specifics of the proposals, eg number/type of units, height of buildings etc. Please also be aware that this would not be the forum to formally present any objections you may have, this should be done through written representations to the Council as is the usual process.
We encourage anyone with an interest in this matter to come and see the plans for yourselves rather than relying on the biased accounts presented elsewhere by the developers.
Tuesday December 12th, 19:00
The Glasshouse community centre 161 Old Ford Road, London E2 9QB
Telford Homes are ready to put their emerging planes for the development of the former LEB building under scrutiny.
The old site will be transformed to bring the area around Bethnal Green station into the 21st Century and that will develop the local area.
Please do not hesitate to visit the Telford Homes website where the plans are published online and also there will be a public consultation on Thursday 2nd November 2017 at the New LIfe Bible Church near Bethnal Green station, between 5pm – 8pm.
I went today to a private viewing as Parkview Residents Association was asked for input. I am very pleased that so much positivity radiates from the new plans into the area and community.
A consultation invitation has been posted to all addresses in the neighbourhood. But just in case you missed your mailing, here is the invite to all again:
public exhibition of the updated designs at the Bethnal Green Methodist Church on Approach Rd (E2 9JP) on Wednesday November 1st 14:00 – 20:00
Residents are cordially invited to attend a bicycle shed planning meeting
on: 26th May 2017
at: 11 AM

Meeting will be attended by a Tower Hamlets Homes officer Jasmin.
Since the filing of over 130 objections with the LBTH planning department directly and many signatures collected via various petitions, the council’s planning department has now informed campaigners that the applicants are expected to submit revised drawings for the scheme and that the council is likely to hold a fresh round of consultations. The time spans for this are not yet known, nor is the council able to anticipate such.
People will be notified of the further developments. Below find the full e-mail received by 38 degrees and sent out to signatories and campaigners:
“Re London Chest Hospital – Planning Status Update
The Borough are anticipating receipt of amended drawings from the applicant for the scheme. The timescale for the receipt of these drawings is not presently known. Discussions are on-going between the applicant and officers; with the outcome of these discussions anticipated to inform the nature of the amended drawings/scheme more generally.
Following receipt of amended drawings it is fully anticipated the Borough will undertake a fresh round of public consultation on the scheme, with the usual 21 day period of consultation.
The Borough are exploring the possibility of lodging (for a limited time period) any amended drawings and other application documents in a publically accessible building located close to the application site- conscious of the concerns raised by a number of neighbours of the difficulty of navigating the documents on-line via the Council website and given the degree of local public interest in the scheme.
Needless to say no date has been set for the application to be taken to the Strategic Development Committee .
I hope this clarifies matters.
