An independent inspector is currently conducting hearings regarding the documents.

Hearing Session 6 – 11 October 2011 – Afternoon

  1. Given that prospects for redevelopment of the adjacent land are uncertain, does the inclusion of reference to the re-alignment of Falcon Lane (proposal 4.1.1) introduce an unwarranted element of uncertainty?
  2. Should the land at Sendall Court (proposal 4.1.2) be allocated for open space rather than residential or mixed use?
  3. Are the proposals for improvements to the Clapham Junction Station Approach (proposal 4.1.3) sufficiently definitive and positive?
  4. Is the incorporation of part of the Peabody Estate land (proposal 4.1.6) into the town centre justified by the evidence?
