The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment has confirmed it will give evidence at the forthcoming planning inquiry into the proposed Heron Tower in London (AJ 19.7.01), and clarified its priorities for the future. It will appear at inquiries when: 'there is an issue of planning policy precedent at stake that could influence future ability to develop highquality buildings and spaces;

CABE has already been involved in the scheme and the issues have contributed to the decision to hold an inquiry; the design is of a quality that is commensurate with CABE's remit to champion high quality design; or there is a perceived public interest in CABE being represented at the inquiry'.

CABE stresses that it will always assess on a case-by-case basis.
