Clapham Junction planning application WITHDRAWN by the Developers.
This welcome news was announced some 48 hours before Wandsworth’s Planning Committee met on Wednesday evening (May 20th) to consider the application. The report by the Borough Planning Officer was recommending that the application be refused because
a. there was insufficient benefit to public transport infrastructure in the town centre
b. affordable housing was omitted from the scheme.
A spokesman for the developer is reported as saying “We are deeply disappointed therefore that the report to the committee was not able to give the proposal its backing”.
