Maybe enforcement have told them to stop building as planning permission hasn't actually been granted yet?!

Technically they arnt building they are just clearing the site. Now they are at the stage where they need planning permission to do anything else.

Would you not need planning permission for such large scale engineering works though?

Where's Longford when you need him?

I thought you needed planning permission for something along those lines - it could even be seen as quarrying!!

I was under the impression that they do need planning permission for it (the hole), but they are so confident that with the right design they can get persmission for a building large enough to fill the hole, that they are starting anyway.

I wouldn't have though the council are going to sneak in overnight and fill it up again on the sly. If someone builds a house or a Tesco, without proper planning permission it seems to take a while to suss out what they are up to; or at least do something about it.

I don't think digging holes is much of a risk. Even if they had to, surley filling them in is virtually free compared to the cost of digging them.

I've looked about and could find anything on them applying for a planning ap on this big hole. You don't need a planning ap to dig a pond, you need one for mining or quarying but this isnt mining is it. Its a bit mud and also where that wall is it just looks like have dug down to its lowest ground level.

Didnt they get planning permission for one of the previous applications?
If so they could be using this to dig the hole until the latest application is approved.

I think they got outline planning permission for the origional twin scheme. But that was ages ago, and the PP has probably expired by now.

Moving soil in any direction is one of the most prohibitively expensive things you can do in construction, major excavation or fill is enough to kill many a project (including alot of civil engineering and landscape). If anything the fact that they can afford these endless groundworks on multiple sites shows the amount of cash they have behind them, god knows why they done use it more (ahmm) constructively.

Wasnt the scheme for a underground car park a separate planning proposal well before any serious tower scheme? Even if the car park was in and done, I dont think it would have much bearing on the tower, other than being its basement.

The juices are flowing. Couple of screen grabs for you. The more I see of Greengate/Exchange Greengate the more excited I get. Lots of new stuff. Fantastic!
