Bishopsgate Goodsyard submitted for planning
30 July 2019
Soundings director Steve McAdam said he is pleased to have played a critical role in ensuring that the revised scheme is a better match for local desires and expectations through focused consultation and engagement, and through direct conversations with the mayor and cabinet of the two boroughs involved, Tower Hamlets and Hackney. This has been a long haul, starting in 2014. Finally, the community consultation has triumphed, and we offer our congratulations to the JV (Hammerson and Ballymore) for taking full stock of the communities views.
We hope other developers will follow their lead. At a time when trust of developers and local authorities is at an all time low – we need fresh, transparent and direct approaches to the planning and implementation of strategic projects.
