In relation to EeH planning application for St Georges Estate infill construction scheme, various irregularities have been observed:
a) LBTH decided that no Environmental Impact Assessemnt (EIA) was required. Instead it requested approximately 12 environmental studies to be submitted and considered prior to the decision for consent. This did not happened, the scheme was considered without important studies in place and some of them were submitted afterwards or attached to the Decision as discharge conditions.
After two failed attempts, in May and July 2008, respectively, due to irregularities and discrepancies in the Officers’ reports, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) Strategic Development Committee (SDC), on 28 August 2008, granted consent to EeH proposed scheme for St Georges Estate, based on 25% affordable housing being financed by the 65% market homes and assurances it received about an additional 10% affordable housing being financed by a Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) grant.

This is the petition we’ve got going at the moment:
We object to EastendHomes’ proposals for private development on the Eric and Treby estates’ open spaces. We specifically ask you to Remove site 2A (now Ennerdale House car park) from the plans:
The proposed sites 1, 2A and 2B do not respect the existing buildings, Ennerdale House and Derwent House; there will be too many buildings too close together, resulting in the loss of an open space which at present gives Hamlets Way an open feel.
