A New twist in the development of Spitalfields Market could jeopardise Allen & Overy's (A&O) potential new headquarters.
Acting for local resident Jaqueline Remfry, Richard Buxton is calling for an environmental impact assessment (EIA) on the original 1997 applications. A letter to Tower Hamlets Council claims the applications did not include an EIA under the 1988 Town and Country Planning Regulations and the Environmental Assessment Directive, and are therefore unlawful. The Spitalfields Development Group (SDG) wants to use both the 1997 applications and a new application, which it will submit with an EIA. But Richard Buxton and Richard Harwood of 1 Serjeants' Inn are pushing for a fresh application. The letter was also sent to A&O and SDG adviser Norton Rose.
