PostSubject: Appeal Court Signals Final Doon Street Approval   Thu Nov 18, 2010 2:12 am

The final hurdle has been overcome in the long struggle by Coin Street Community Builders to get their 140 metre tall planned tower on Doon Street in London approved.

Originally the project had proven contentious due to the fact it would peak over the trees in St James Park and be visible in certain protected views, and also because it stood near to the listed Royal Festival Hall and lacked the necessary affordable housing. Instead, developer instead relied on a swimming pool and dance centre as planning gain to help provide the local community on Bankside with some much needed new fitness and leisure facilities that would not be part of an expensive health club.

With English Heritage and Historic Royal Parks having conceded defeat following the public inquiry, the judicial review into the decision by then Communities Secretary Hazel Blears to approve the scheme was being backed by a local man, William Ashton.

Ashton lives 260 metres from the tower and his lawyer claimed that the tower, if built, would overshadow his balcony and thus meant that the Communities Secretary had made an improper decision that should be overturned.

There were no other claimants seeking action against the approval despite there being numerous properties that will be overshadowed more. Following the loss in the Appeal Court, Ashton's lawyers attempted file an appeal to be heard in the Supreme Court, but this was rejected.

With the final legal bump now cleared, Coin Street Community Builders will now be free to proceed with the project. All they have to do now is raise the funding.
