Over the coming months there will be three planning applications regarding the re-development of Wornington Green:
The biggest is the submission for the detailed designs of Phase 2 of the re-development. The application covers Blocks 4 and 6 of the re-development and includes details of the exact height and footprint of buildings and their external appearance (e.g. balconies and colour of bricks). In the run up to the application being submitted there have been articles in Here & Now, we’ve invited you to drop-ins and held a series of workshops looking at specific aspects of the design. We anticipate that this application will be made in the Autumn.
A further application will be submitted before the detailed design for Phase 2 is approved. It is known as a Section 73 application and it will seek to amend the outline planning permission granted in 2010, specifically the changes to the phasing. We have written individually to every resident about this and covered in Here & Now and at the recent drop-ins. It also includes amendments to the footprint of Block 6 to close a narrow gap between two buildings and to change the number of wheelchair units in Block 2 to reflect the needs of existing residents. It also seeks permission to remove four trees – two which are in poor condition and two that were retained in error and need to be removed to make way for Block 4. Once the application has been submitted all residents will receive a letter from the council notifying them of the application and informing you how to comment through the formal planning process.

A further application is also to be submitted. It is to be a Section 96A and will consist of a list of specifications for the materials and windows already being used in Phase 1 (Blocks 1, 2 and 3). RBKC has reviewed examples of materials to ensure that they are of a suitable quality and by submitting this list Catalyst committed to using these high quality materials for all of
