We have successfully completed the last planning hurdle for our Sports and Science project for Harrow School.
Harrow Council, which supported the project, were originally directed to refuse permission by the GLA due to the site’s MOL status. The School successfully appealed the decision with the Secretary of State agreeing with the Inspector’s conclusions that: ‘the Appellant’s approach…. appears to be a pragmatic, detailed, thoughtful and well-designed scheme. Indeed, with the use of materials, the axial route providing a central link between the upper and lower hill to the Chapel in one direction and proposed science and sports building and sports fields, with views of the London skyline beyond in the other direction would appear as an epitome of high-quality buildings and places.’ The subsequent appeal to the High Court by the GLA was quashed and we now look forward to working with the School to deliver this exciting project.
