A redevelopment of the site, to deliver affordable homes, had been refused by the London Borough of Havering on design grounds. CMA Planning were brought into the team to take the proposals to appeal, successfully securing planning permission in March 2009. Tim Gaskell, one of the Directors of CMA, gave evidence at the Public Inquiry as an Expert Witness and addressed all matters raised by the Council and third parties. Key issues covered included height of the proposal, the design, building lines, section 106 contributions, residential amenity and parking.
