Previous planning permission for the site was for a building of 5-6 stories, in line with the buildings either side. The new development is for a building that will be up to 8-18 stories high with a frontage much closer to Addiscombe Road. This may set an unwelcome precedent for further developments on the road, leading to a significant and unwelcome alteration to the streetscape.
Developers L&Q were given permission to go ahead with this planning application WITHOUT under taking an environmental impact assessment, so it is important to make your comments now.
