Hammersmith and Fulham planning committee (11 October 2022) supported the recommendation of the planning officer to refuse the proposal for 148 residential units at Mitre Wharf within the Old Oak and Park Royal Planning Corporations boundary.

The proposal was refused because the applicant provided insufficient information on the transport and highways impact and a lack of affordable housing.

The proposal was for the demolition of existing structures and redevelopment of the site to provide two buildings of 8 and 9-storeys comprising 148 residential units (Use Class C3) above 833 sqm of ground and lower ground floor commercial uses (Class E), including car and cycle parking, plant space, landscaping and associated works.

The same proposal has been submitted to the Old Oak Planning committee on the 27 October 2022. The officer’s recommendation was for approval. Following a split vote the proposal gained approval with the chairs casting vote. The debate on the level of affordable housing continued however it was argued that the nature of the OPDC opportunity area allowed different targets to be applied.
