Bishopsgate Goods Yard Planning and Design Guidance
The Planning Guidance for Bishopsgate Goods Yard was adopted by Cabinet on 23 November 2009. The document was prepared through partnership working with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and the Greater London Authority.
The purpose of this guidance is help guide future development, infrastructure provision, and provide a high-level framework for the regeneration of the site. Whilst not part of the Council’s Local Development Framework (LDF), the document is a material consideration in the assessment of future planning applications. The document provides guidance on a range of matters, including mix of uses, building heights, urban design principles, and the location of future open space and public realm. Overall, it provides a planning and design rationale that plans for the site as a whole, rather than in a piecemeal manner.
The Council consulted with the public and stakeholders on the Draft Planning Guidance for Bishopsgate Goods Yard for a ten week period that ran between 23 February and 1 May 2009.
