St James White City Planning Application Now Taking Soundings From The Public

St James White City Redevelopment area
Developer St James has now submitted a formal planning application to the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham seeking planning permission for its development proposals for the M&S Warehouse Site on Wood Lane. The application reference number is 2014/04726/OUT and can be found on the Council's website here. St James will also be making the submitted planning documents available to view at the UGLI Buildings on the dates and times below. Bush residents are invited to drop in and discuss the proposals with the team.

The plans are huge, and involve redeveloping an enormous area of what is now more or less unlovely brownfield land - formerly warehouses for Marks and Spencer.
The drop-in times for visitors in-person are as follows:

Wednesday 22nd October 2014, 4.00pm-8.00pm 
Wednesday 29th October 2014, 4.00pm-8.00pm 

Address: Block B, UGLI Campus, 56 Wood Lane, W12 7SB 

The plans fall within what is described as the White City Opportunity Area - designated for development and improvement by the Council (see below)

White City Opportunity Area
According to St James, these plans will "bring together" much of the new development which is scheduled to take place about the White City Opportunity Area. Our neighbourhood is going to change beyond recognition in years to come.

In the north is Imperial West, featuring new housing and facilities for Imperial College London. This is currently being built. Just south of that is the Old Dairy Crest Site. To the west is the BBC Media Village, and south of that is BBC TV Centre, which is also being redeveloped. South of all of them is Westfield, expanding north and bringing John Lewis to the Bush. The new proposed St James development is at the centre of it all, featuring a public park - which is probably the most attractive part of the plans as far as local residents are concerned.
