This development is of great interest and importance toLewisham and we are hugely disappointed by the Mayor’s decision for the GLA toact as planning authority.
The GLA recognises Lewisham Council’s good performance in delivering new housing over recent years. We note also that the report recommends a continued close working relationship with Lewisham Council to ensure that local issues are fully considered and acknowledges that we need to secure from the developers significant local benefits should the application be approved.
We will continue to represent local concerns and support the appropriate regeneration of our Thames waterfront to provide much needed jobs and homes.
