Jones Lang LaSalle wins planning appeal for residential development in Lewisham, south east London

London, 27th April 2010 – Jones Lang LaSalle has won a major planning appeal on behalf of Loromah Estates Limited in respect of a residential development of up to 71 apartments located in nine blocks on a site in Forest Hill, Lewisham, south east London. The proposed development, situated on land to the rear of Tyson Road and Honor Oak Road, was considered at a public inquiry after planning consent was originally refused by Lewisham Borough Council in August 2009.
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Planning team submitted and managed the planning appeal on behalf of Loromah Estates Ltd. The planning inquiry took place in February 2010. Andy Frost, director of Planning at Jones Lang LaSalle, appeared as the Expert Planning witness for Loromah. Jones Lang LaSalle’s affordable housing expert, Richard Ashdown, also advised Loromah on section 106 matters.
The scheme was granted planning permission by the appeal inspector on 22 April 2010.
Andy Frost said: “The main issues debated at the public inquiry were the design quality of the development, its impact on the character and appearance of the area, and its effect on surrounding residential occupiers.  Our team comprehensively addressed these issues at the inquiry. We are delighted that the appeal inspector shared our view that the proposed development was entirely acceptable and we achieved a very successful result for our client.”
