Reports of revisions to Wilmer Place development plan
In the last 24 hours there have been reports on Twitter that there has been a delay in submitting the application because the developers are revising the plan in light of the response from the Stoke Newington community. According to these reports the architects of the development have suggested that the supermarket aspect of the proposal is being scaled back.
At this point in time we have no idea to what extent the plans are being altered and there have been no updates to the Wilmer Place website so far to confirm this.
It is also worth noting that this would not be the first time that developers have put forward a clearly inappropriate proposal before submitting a scaled back application, with a view to softening up opposition.
This fight is by no means over, but it does show that by getting together we can influence how our community develops and that we can work together to support and maintain Stoke Newington's unique character. We will keep you up to date with the latest information as soon as we become aware of it.
