King Henry’s Wharf Latest

It’s all gone a bit quiet but then I noticed a new planning application had been put in on the site. As such, I wrote to the council to ask whether the development is still going ahead. I received the response below:

21 July 2016

Reference: 5342969

Dear Councillor Dockerill

Enquiry number: 5342969

Enquiry regarding: ME – Planning Apps Registered By Ward Report for LBTH Members

In response to your query received on 11 July 2016. I have now had the opportunity to look into this matter in more detail and it is my understanding is that you are referring to the development proposals at King Henry’s Wharves, Phoenix Wharf.

As you will be aware, planning permission was granted on 2nd May 2015 (planning reference PA/13/00982) for a change of use of the existing wharf buildings (King Henry’s Wharf and Phoenix Wharf) to provide 35 residential units, the creation of a new three-storey dwellinghouse (on land formerly occupied by Swan Wharf), and the erection of new five storey building (on land on the north-western corner of the junction of Wapping High St and Brewhouse Lane) to provide 18 affordable units.

There are two relevant planning applications received by the Council since February 2016.

Firstly, the local planning authority on 24th April 2016 permitted a non-material amendment (planning reference Wharf redevPA/16/00458) to the above planning consent (PA/13/00982). The non-material amendment relates to the wordings of conditions 4, 5a, 6, 8, and 9 to allow the applicant more flexibility in terms of phasing their build programme by allowing ground works to be undertaken prior to discharging certain conditions. Further information can be found on the Council’s planning register by using the planning reference to search available using the following link:

Secondly, as King Henry’s Wharf and Phoenix Wharf are Grade II Listed buildings the applicant requires a new listed building consent to amend the conditions attached to the original listed building consent (planning reference PA/13/00983) in line with the above non-material amendment to the full planning permission. Legally, listed building consents cannot be varied using a non-material amendment, and as such a new application had to be submitted. This new listed building consent application (planning reference PA/16/01310) was received is pending determination, and public consultation has been carried out in accordance with the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement. It should be noted that the application is the same as that permitted previously (PA/13/00983).

I trust the above is helpful to you and responds to your enquiry. Please contact me if I can be of further assistance.

Yours sincerely

Tim Ross

Area Planning Manager (West), Development Management
