Skylines scheme returns to planning next week

The contentious Skylines development will return to Tower Hamlets council next week with planning officers still recommending approval.

The proposal by ZBV & Skylines for the 50 storey development was rejected by councillors last month following concerns over a host of issues around the scheme's scale.

This came despite planning officers recommending approval for the development of 764 units at the site in Limeharbour, just south of Canary Wharf.

A meeting will take place next Wednesday to either ratify or reject the original decision.

The latest report from officers said "views on the planning merits of the scheme remain unchanged" and it recommended approval.

However, it will be up to councillors to decide whether to support their original decision.
