Morris House – Planning permission refused

December 19, 2013

Hackney Council has REFUSED planning permission for a 5-storey development on the site of the Tesco store at the corner of Sandringham Road and Kingsland High Street (130 Kingsland High Street).

It did so on the grounds that:

‘The proposed development, by reason of its excessive height and massing on
this prominent corner junction, would result in a development that would relate
poorly to the existing development on Kingsland High Street and Sandringham
Road to the detriment of the streetscene and would also unduly compromise and
compete with the setting of the Grade 2 listed Rio Cinema opposite. The proposal
is therefore contrary to Hackney Core Strategy 2010 policy 24 (Design) and 25
(Historic Environment), the Dalston Area Action Plan 2013, London Plan 2011
policies 7.4 (Local Character), 7.6 (Architecture) and 7.8 (Heritage assets and
archaeology), and paragraphs 17, 64 and 133 of the National Planning Policy
