Mayor to judge on Allies and Morrison’s Elephant and Castle tower

  • Comment

London mayor Boris Johnson has stepped in to make a final decision over Allies and Morrison’s 43-storey mixed-use Elephant and Castle tower in south London

Johnson will now decide whether to approve the 137.5m-tall project which was turned down by local authority Southwark Council two months ago.

The scheme was refused against planning officers’ recommendations because of concern over its social housing provision, compliance with the London plan and viability.

Neighbouring nightclub Ministry of Sound had also been a long running objector to the scheme which it claimed could force it to curtail its commercial night club operations if future inhabitants complained over noise.

Graham Morrison of Allies and Morrison said he would be ‘pleased’ if the project was approved, adding: ‘I very much hope that is the outcome.’
