The Stag Brewery development, Mortlake, has been referred to the Planning Inspectorate on appeal.

The updated plans were approved by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRuT) Planning Committee on January 31st 2024, with the following provisions:

 i) referral to the Greater London Authority (GLA) at Stage 2 and no adverse direction being received in response from the GLA; ii) referral to the Secretary of State (NPCU) and no adverse direction being received in response; iii) completion of Section 106 Legal Agreement securing the Heads of Terms set out in Section 9 to the satisfaction of the Head of Development Management; iv) conditions and information set out in Sections 12 and 13 of the report; and v) additional and amendments to conditions and heads of terms as considered to be required by the Head of Development Management.

The appeal document drafted by Gerald Eve on behalf of Reselton Properties states,” Before the committee meeting, the Applicant spoke again with officers at the GLA who again indicated that, if the scheme were referred, it was likely to be refused. It is for this reason, and this reason alone, that the Appellant has reluctantly decided to expedite the determination of the applications through the submission of Appeals on the ground of non-determination.”

The Inspector appointed to decide the appeals is G Rollings BA(Hons) MAUD MRTPI. The inquiry will open on Wednesday, May 29th 2024. There will be eight sitting days: 29-31 May, 4-7 June, and June 11th.
