The formal decision notice granting planning permission has only been issued in the last week.
It seems that St Martin Property Corporation prevaricated about signing the section 106 agreement (payments to mitigate the impact of development on local residents) until the last possible moment.
Chambers Wharf was on the agenda for Tuesday night's planning committee with a recommendation that planning permission be refused because the s106 agreement hadn't been signed, despite the committee having voted in favour of granting permission several years ago.
Lo and behold the agreement was finally signed just before Tuesday's meeting and the council has issued the decision notice giving permission for the development.
