Planning Committee Submission

Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council
Added on: 10 July 2015 at 09:54:50

Home Base Site, Swandon Way – 2015/3304

The Battersea Society is pleased that the applicant will be submitting a full Environmental Impact study.  This is clearly needed and should take account of the many developments both approved and awaiting a decision which will have an impact on many aspects of the study. 

We would make a particular point of the need to review the impact on public transport and on roads of this proposal in combination with other developments. 

Regarding consultation.  It would be helpful if developers would routinely include the relevant civic society in their list of consultees.  In this case the Wandsworth Society is the appropriate body but we too would like to be included because of the proximity of this site to developments along York Road.  We note that the section on consultation makes no mention of the local civic society nor the general public. 

It is perhaps fruitless to mention that this application for a very tall building runs contrary to the agreed SSAD for the area – even now subject to scrutiny by the Planning Inspector.
