Lewisham Council refused application for planning permission for the whole development (DC/17/100680), which has subsequently been appealed by the applicant.

The Council did seek Counsel on defending the refusal reasons put forward by Planning Committee C and it has been agreed that only reasons 1 and 2 can be defended by the Council.

Reasons 3 and 4 are considered to be indefensible as the evidence for them cannot be substantiated by the Council.

This position has been decided by the Council.

An Inquiry by the Planning Inspectorate is due to be held in 2019. All submissions to the Inspector were to be made earlier this year.

The Inspector's Report on that Inquiry will determine whether the appeal succeeds or fails. If it succeeds it can be anticipated that the applicant will proceed with the development, potentially with a new occupant specified for the building that was going to be occupied by Aldi.

It would seem the decision to demolish the gas-holders has been de-facto determined by the Council in a separate application and can proceed, independent of the Planning Inspectorate's Inquiry.

Heritage England has issued COIL certificates which state that they will not consider listing the gas-holders in the next five years. There is no evidence of any other substantive matters that Heritage England will consider and at this stage and Formal Reports were submitted to Council on several matters such as wildlife, nesting birds and the like which means there is no material matters now that remain to be considered by the Council.

It can be anticipated that Montagu Evans are now in a position to instruct the works to commence.
