19-storey block proposed for 51-57 Kingsland High Street

August 9, 2013

An application has been submitted for a development including a 19-storey block, comprising 125 flats, retail and office space.

The council is currently consulting with the local community about this. You can see further details by going to the website www.hackney.gov.uk/planning-applications quoting planning reference number 2013/2042 and submit your comments online. Alternatively you can view the application at the Ground FloorReception Area, Hackney Service Centre, 1 Hillman Street, London, E8 1DY between 9 am and 5 pm on Mondays to Fridays (except public holidays).

Hackney Council say that ‘The planning officer will only be able to consider comments, whether in support of an application or objecting to it, in relation to ‘planning issues’.  This means that you must focus your comments on matters like the effect on traffic or parking, the appearance of the proposal, overlooking or disturbance, loss of light or privacy, impact on the local environment and whether the proposed use is suitable.

‘We cannot take into account matters like loss of property value, private disputes between neighbours, matters covered by leases or covenants, the impact of construction work and competition between firms.’
