Community Right to Build

crtb imageThis proposal represents the Community Right to Build Order funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and administered by the Mount Pleasant Association Ltd. It is one of the many different activities conducted over the last three years by the local community around Mount Pleasant to pursue a community led development for the large Sorting Office site than the Royal Mail Group’s scheme which received widespread criticism, was rejected by both councils, and was controversially called in by the former Mayor, Mr Johnson.

A Community Right to Build Order is only valid for developments of 150 residential units or less. This community-led proposal therefore focuses on a comparatively small part of the larger site covered by the community’s widely publicised alternative scheme for Mount Pleasant, which is still being actively pursued.

This draft Order is currently subject to a six week public consultation (9th May – 20 June), after which it will be amended to accommodate any comments and suggestions. The work contained here represents the third of four stages (milestones) under the GLA contract, which will conclude with the submission (Milestone 4) to Camden council to seek planning permission.
