There seems to be some criticism of the role of planning in this case. Let me just say that the role of planning is to facilitate development and protect adjacent amenity/property. In rejecting proposals planning authorites indicate to developers how they might get permission. There are two substantial issues for the city in this case, namely:
1. The design and its impact on the surrounding area.
2. The demolition of protected structures.
There is no objection to a sensitive and intensified redevelopment on the site and no objection to the design per se…it is all about context.
