Triple Kirks approval sparks controversy
August 19 2011
Architect Halliday Fraser Munro and developer Stewart Milne will knock down the A listed façade on Schoolhill, but retain the landmark steeple, to make way for the seven storey, 72,600sq/ft block.
Despite approval construction work will not commence in the absemce of a pre-let, as Milne’s development director Malcolm Deans said: “With planning consent granted, we will be actively marketing the development and are confident that, with the current lack of office space of this quality and stature, we will secure a high profile pre-let.”
Andrew Goldie, planning convener of Queens Cross Harlow Community Council has labeled the plans as “grossly unsuitable”.
The scheme has already been nominated for a 2011 ‘Pock Mark’ award for worst planning decision.
