Con­crete fac­to­ries plan hits the dust

The Wharf - - The Week -

Mayor of Tower Ham­lets John Biggs has wel­comed in­di­ca­tions that plans to build con­crete fac­to­ries next to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Olympic Park will not go ahead.

The plan­ning author­ity for the area, the Lon­don Legacy De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tions, has now in­di­cated that the scheme now won’t go ahead.

Wor­ries over the move­ment of 900 lor­ries a day sparked a pe­ti­tion of more than 10,000 sig­na­tures. Mr Biggs said “com­mon sense has pre­vailed”.
