The planning application for the second phase of the Imperial West development was submitted in part to Hammersmith & Fulham Council before Christmas, and in part in the New Year. Since submission, the council’s planners have been validating the application and checking the information submitted. The council is still
waiting on some amendments to be made to the planning application form before public consultation can begin.
Hence the details of the application have yet to be published on the councils website. When they are, they should be available at http://www.lbhf.gov.uk/Directory/Environment_and_Planning/Planning/homepage.asp
The application reference is 2011/04016/COMB. The application is a combined outline and detailed application, i.e. one that provides details of certain of the buildings for which full planning permission is sought and outline proposals for the remainder.
Kensington & Chelsea council will be responsible for local consultation with residents on this side of the borough boundary. Letters should be sent out, and site notices posted, in the next week or so.
The consultation period will be a minimum of 21 days from when letters are sent out, and Hammersmith and Fulham say they will also consider letters after this date. The application is not expected to be decided for a minimum of 16 weeks, taking the decision date to mid April at the earliest.
The College’s consultants have met the Association’s request for details of the floorspace figures for the total development, including the split between College and commercial use. These figures are set out below, under each of the different building uses. We will be assessing these in more depth once plans and drawings of thre various buildings are available.
