Far from being a part of the Solution Mayor Biggs's regime is a big part of the problem.
The westferry Printworks is the latest in a long line of bad judgement calls and political meddling in Planning officers doing their jobs.
One assumes the efforts of the planning forum are well meaning and yet, it is hard not to conclude that what its efforts really represent is the worse of Metropolitan Elite Not in my back yardism ( Nimbyism) in the face of Londons and London Borough of Tower Hamlets huge housing challenges.
The problem is not the the Manhattanization of the Isle of Dogs rather it is the Tammany hallisation of City Hall.
WESTFERRY PRINT WORKS NO THERE THERE!
Failures of the first five-year planThe first plan saw unrealistic quotas set for industrialization that, in reality, would not be met for decades to come. The great push for industrialization caused quotas to consistently be looked at and adjusted. Quotas expecting to reach 235.9 percent output and labor to increase by 110 percent were unrealistic in the time frame they allotted for. The goals for the plans were not set and those that were, were constantly changed. Each time one quota was met, it was revised and made larger. Unions were being shut down which meant workers were no longer allowed to strike and not be protected from being fired or dismissed from work for reasons such as being late or just missing a day.
Mr Biggs and his Zhil laner cabinet have presided over a famine in affordable house building and by seeking to turn Community Infrastructure levy into a Stalinist wealth Tax are disincentivizing the bringing forward of development. Apart from, of course, that by their Zhil Laner crony capitalist "Not for profit " Chums in the "3rd Sector".
The Spreadsheet, Project Viability.
The Spreadsheet and Offer of Additional Housing is clear for all to see. Towerhamlets gambled with a Clear offer to Provide 35% AFFORDABLE BY Habitable Rooms, The Viability Valuation shows 27.5% affordable by Habitable room With a CIL and S106 of £5,517,564 £5,973,167 respectively
7.1 The conclusions of this report are that the Proposed Development should provide
27.5% affordable housing by habitable room, and that is the maximum reasonable
7.2 The Applicant is prepared to offer 35% affordable housing by habitable room, of
which 30% would affordable rent, and 70% intermediate housing. The offer of 35%
affordable housing is made in recognition of the urgent need to deliver affordable
housing in the Borough and London, the Mayor’s SPG on Affordable Housing and
Viability SPG 2017 which adopts a Fast Track route for 35% affordable housing
schemes, and the Applicant’s view on the long term housing market.

A constructive suggestion on the Revised Plan, the current version should have all foot note references linked to the documents referred to it is by no means clear in some cases which footnote refers to which document and which version. This is unhelpful for people trying to engage with the process unfamiliar with the labyrinth of small print and obfuscation.
I would also add the advisory aspects of the plan which the Inspector clearly proposes should be made clearer is not respected in this revised version. Moving the Glossary to the appendix does not satisfy the spirit let alone the letter of the Inspectors requirements.

Isle of Dogs neighbourhood take back control vote no May 26th.
My Posts were removed but my comments remain in a collapsed Format so the presentation much with the dead links in the Plan foot links works against people wishing to consider all the context and arguments against the misguided aspects of the anti-developer agenda the plan endorses and represents.
