CMA are delighted to have secured unanimous approval from Tower Hamlets’ Development Committee for Aitch Group’s proposals for Byron Street last night.  This Dowen Farmer designed scheme will deliver 65 new homes (35% affordable) in a building up to 5 storeys in height, centred around a communal courtyard.  Key issues that were addressed during the course of the application included the loss of the former community use, the relevant affordable housing threshold, and height and massing, especially with regards to the adjoining conservation area and locally listed buildings.  LBTH Officers felt that the scheme would deliver high quality design which would positively contribute to the area, whilst preserving the character and appearance of the Langdon Park Conservation Area, and the heritage buildings which populate the local setting.
