“Following high level discussions between the Leader and Deputy Leader of Westminster City Council and Irvine Sellar, Great Western Developments has taken the decision, today, to revise the original proposals for Paddington Place in London including its height.”
The full statement from the developer can be seen at their site specific website: http://www.31londonstreet.co.uk
Bayswater’s Conservatives Councillors are delighted at this news, achieved after the success of the campaign against the ‘Paddington Pole’ planning development.
Cllr Brian Connell, the first Cllr to publically oppose the development said, “We couldn’t be more pleased: this was the wrong development in the wrong place – I’m just sorry that the application was ever submitted.”
Cllr Richard Holloway added, “Our consultation with residents showed this was massively opposed – and this result just shows how working with our community, SEBRA, and the Skyline campaign can pay dividends.”
Your Bayswater Councillor team welcome proposals to redevelop the old sorting office site on London street site and will stay alert to new applications, as well as the evolving planning policy on tall buildings in Westminster.
Note: The ‘Paddington Pole’ planning application was for a site at London Street, Paddington (15/11219/FULL). It was led by the Sellar Property Group, led by Irvine Sellar.
At 72 storeys (248 metres high) it would have become London's second tallest building.
