Kidbrooke Station Square public hearing

In their role of making strategic planning decisions, the Mayor may occasionally take over an application, therefore becoming the local planning authority. They must then hold a public hearing before deciding whether or not to grant planning permission. 

In this instance, the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took over the application for the redevelopment of Kidbrooke Station Square in Greenwich. 


On 16 July 2019 Greenwich advised the Mayor that it was minded to refuse permission for the redevelopment proposals for Kidbrooke Station Square. 

On 5 August 2019, having considered a report on the case, the Mayor notified Greenwich that he would act as the local planning authority for the purposes of determining the planning applications (under article 7 of the Mayor of London Order and the powers conferred by Section 2A of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act). 

The local authority for this case is 18/4187/F. The GLA reference is 3757a.
