Developer Land Securities is to submit a “radical reformation” of its plans for the redevelopment of the area around London’s Victoria station in the next few weeks.
Mike Hussey, Land Secs’ London managing director, said the firm was aiming to get the scheme, on which it has already spent £23m, submitted in June.
Land Secs’ original plans were rejected by Westminster council in December for not complying with local planning policies on building height and affordable housing.
Hussey told delegates at the British Council for Offices conference in Brussels: “We’ll put in a scheme that won’t give public realm improvement or transport improvement, but might get planning permission. It’s a much smaller scheme – it’s a missed opportunity.”
