planning report PDU/0263/01 14 April 2004

Three Quays, Lower Thames Street, EC3

in the City of London planning application no.03-1181AE

Town & Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended); Greater London Authority Act 1999; Town & Country Planning (Mayor of London) Order 2000 – strategic planning application stage 1 referral

Demolition of existing building and redevelopment to provide apart-hotel (77 units) residential (64 units) and retail (Class A1 and/or A3) accommodation (890 sq. m.) together with ancillary plant, servicing and parking areas



On 23 June 2003 the Corporation of London consulted the Mayor of London on a

proposal to develop the above site for the above uses. Under the provisions of the Town &

Country Planning (Mayor of London) Order 2000 the Mayor has the same opportunity as other

statutory consultees to comment on the proposal. This report sets out information for the Mayor’s use in deciding what comments to make.


The application is referable under Category 1C of the Schedule of the Order 2000:

“Development which comprises or includes the erection of a building in respect of which one or

more of the following conditions is met –

(a) The building is more than 25 metres high and is adjacent to the River Thames.”


If the Corporation of London subsequently decides that it is minded to grant planning

permission, it must first allow the Mayor an opportunity to decide whether to direct the Council

to refuse permission.


The Mayor of London’s comments on this case will be made available on the GLA

website www.london.gov.uk.
