Land at Benedict Wharf public hearing
In their role of making strategic planning decisions, the Mayor may occasionally take over an application, therefore becoming the local planning authority. They must then hold a public hearing before deciding whether or not to grant planning permission.
In this instance, the Deputy Mayor, Jules Pipe, took over the application for the redevelopment of the Land at Benedict Wharf in Merton.
Background to the public hearing
On 21 July 2020 Merton advised the Mayor that it was minded to refuse planning permission for the Land at Benedict Wharf against officers’ recommendation.
On 3 August 2020, having considered a report on the case, the Deputy Mayor notified Merton that the Mayor would act as the local planning authority for the purposes of determining the planning applications (under article 7 of the Mayor of London Order and the powers conferred by Section 2A of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act).
The local authority for this case is 19/P2383. The GLA reference is 2020/4756.
