Help for Haymarket

Posted on 10 Jul 2019 by Joe

The Cockburn Association has objected to the most recent plans for gap site at Haymarket.  The proposals, by “starchitects” Fosters & Partners for The Prudential Assurance Company falls far short of the quality of building required for this prominent site.

A valid planning consent for this site exists, setting the precedent for development. We support the use of this site.  However, it is crucial that the best scheme for this prominent gateway into the City is found.  This is not it. 

Deadlines for objections is Friday 12 July 2019.  If you are also concerned about this proposals, please submit your comments asap. Information is provided here on suggested points you might raise.
