Planning

Planning

The CGCA is a recognised amenity group and as such is formally consulted by both Westminster and Camden on all planning applications with the Covent Garden area. We do not have the power to determine planning applications, that is the role of the relevant local authority, but we have a strong and widely respected voice.

Our Planning sub-committee meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month to consider local applications, with an average of 15-20 reviewed at each meeting. After discussion with interested parties and consideration of applicable policies, thorough responses are made in appropriate cases. Where necessary we attend and make representation at hearings and inquiries.

For larger developments, we monitor  proposals, and work with developers at an early stage, often before applications are made, as we seek to minimise the impact of major redevelopments. Servicing these large developments is a significant issue for the community. We  negotiate with developers to put in place acceptable management servicing plans upon which our councils can make planning permission conditional.

We monitor flagrant planning breaches in our area and press the local authorities to take enforcement action. This often includes obliging the offending party to meet with residents who are affected, to reach a solution. If an application arises which we believe will seriously affect local residents, we make every effort to alert those nearby and to encourage them to make individual responses in addition to our collective response.

To see details of planning applications and decisions, to comment on an application or to report breaches of planning regulations in Camden, see here.  For those in Westminster, see here.

Please let us know if you have concerns about a planning application which may affect you.

For information about upcoming public exhibitions regarding planning proposals and applications, see the News & Events page.

Information about our work on Neighbourhood Planning in Covent Garden can be found here.

If you are considering applying for planning consent in Covent Garden, please approach us at an early stage.   Notes on our own policy approach can be accessed here, and it may be useful for you to look through these to see if anything that you are proposing may be contentious.  We find that early discussions are productive for both sides.

Meetings

The planning subcommittee’s next meeting is Monday, 8 May 2017. An agenda will be available here before the meeting.

Please note that planning meetings are open to appointed committee members only. If you have comments or concern about an item on the agenda, please contact the CGCA at planning@coventgarden.org.uk.

Subcommittee members can log in to the results database here and to notes from presentations made to the committee here.
