The original planning approval for Wornington Green contained a condition which required a detailed waste strategy to be submitted to the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC). This was formally approved by RBKC earlier this year.
Since gaining approval, Catalyst has been looking at ways to improve the management of the refuse collection for the flats/apartments in Block 1 (mews houses and apartments in other blocks will be unaffected). The refuse collection system for the remaining blocks in Phase 1 has not been revised.
In practical terms, very little has changed from the original approved strategy. The main change is that the single, large waste store at the northern end of Block 1 is to be replaced by two, smaller waste stores located at either end of the block. Some minor alterations are needed to accommodate these changes and it will also have an impact on the inside and outside appearance of the block. Catalyst considers these changes are very minor – the technical planning term is ‘non-material’–
and will be seeking approval for these amendments.
Catalyst has asked RBKC for permission for the improved waste strategy by way of a ‘non-material amendment’ application. If you want to inspect the application, you can do so at the Town Hall, Hornton Street, London, W8 7NX, as soon as the planning application has been formally registered.
Any comments about the application should be made to the RBKC within 14 days of the application being validated.
