Legal Challenge to Lots Road Defeated

Opponents of the Lots Road development in London have finally run out of legal road to try and prevent the scheme from going ahead with.

The twin towers next to Lots Road Power Station have been designed by Terry Farrell & Partners and will be 37 and 25 floors. When built the tallest will be 122 metres and when it was originally proposed had the title of the tallest residential tower planned in London showing just how much times have changed in the past five years or so.

Their continued approval is also expected to see other developments for the area finally surface, at least one other prominent architect is known to be working on a residential tower of a similar height to these nearby.

This one has been around for a long while and got stuck firmly in planning hell as it straddles two different London boroughs. Hammersmith and Fulham approved their portion of the scheme which includes the taller of the two towers, whilst Kensington and Chelsea refused forcing the developer into getting a public inquiry which they subsequently won.

With the developer having achieved this, campaigners then set about trying to get a judicial review of the public inquiry ruling so that it would be overturned however in the high court last week. Opponent, Lady Dido Berkeley, had her case opposing the approval thrown out by Lord Justice Hamilton who ruled that there had been no errors in the decision by the Secretary of State, John Prescott, to award planning permission.

Hutchinson Wampoa who own the company running the scheme, Circadian Ltd, plan on beginning construction later in 2007 marking a final end to this long running, expensive, and acrimonious chapter. Construction is anticipated to finish in 2013 if everything goes to plan, over ten years after they were originally proposed. And they say Rome wasn't built in a day...
