Palmerston Road

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

In this instance Mayor  took over the application for the redevelopment of Palmerston Road. 

Background to the public hearing

On 3 January 2017 Harrow advised the Mayor that it was minded to refuse planning permission for the redevelopment proposals for Palmerston Road. 

On 9 January 2017, having considered a report on the case, the Mayor notified Harrow that he would act as the local planning authority for the purposes of determining the planning application (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 Planning Authority reference assigned to the application is P/1619/16. The GLA reference is 3825
