Decision details

This case has not yet been decided.

Decision: Refuse Planning Permission/Consent
Decision date: 13 Dec 2021
Conditions and reasons:


The proposed works, by reason of their height, massing and architectural design would result in less than substantial harm to the Grade II listed South Kensington Underground Station, and would fail to preserve the special architectural and historic interest of the listed building. The identified harm is not outweighed by the public benefits of the proposal. The proposed works are therefore contrary to development plan policies CL4 of the Local Plan (2019) and HC1 of the London Plan (2021), and guidance in the National Planning Policy Framework.
