Newmark Properties have submitted revised plans for the Sainsbury development on WIlmer Place.
The proposal is registered and nominally available here. (You may need to cut and paste the link into your browser.) Unfortunately, none of the documents are currently available. There is nominally a three week consultation period, closing on 17 June, but this date is likely to be revised once the plans are posted on the site.
While we understand that there is relatively little difference between the old and new proposal, the only official information that can currently be gleaned from the planning website is as follows:
‘Demolition of buildings on land at Wilmer Place and the rear parts of 193-201 Stoke Newington High Street with retention of front Stoke Newington High Street facade, and erection of a basement (plant area only) and part 1, 3, 4 and 5 storey building comprising a 4142m2 retail unit (class A1) on ground floor and 53 residential units above (16×1, 21×2, 15×3 and 1×4 beds), including associated roof terraces and landscaped amenity spaces, 6 disabled car parking spaces (accessed from Wilmer Place) and cycle and refuse stores. The retail unit includes a service area (accessed from Wilmer Place) and associated plant and machinery areas (Note for consultation: The main difference between this current application and the previously refused application on this site, ref: 2012/2228 is that the ground and upper floors of the western elevation have been resited further from Abney Park Cemetery than previously proposed. Residential unit numbers and mix of unit sizes have also changed).’
Once more details are available we will be providing a briefing, however, it is probably best not to submit objections until the plans are posted and we are able to provide a briefing which identifies, sound planning reasons for objections.
In the meantime we need to ensure that there are more objectors to this application than there were to the last, so please, Tweet, Facebook, email and speak to people about this proposal.
Thank you for your hellp so far, we have already shown what we can do when we get our community organised, now lets get ready for ’round two’.
