The attached post in Spitalfields Life is, as always, a very helpful summary of the state-of-play surrounding the forthcoming Public Inquiry. I think and hope that if you have submitted evidence in the past, it is not necessary to do so again. If you have not, please do.
I am assuming that the Inquiry will revolve round the legitimacy of Tower Hamlets allowing change-of-use from a bell foundry to a boutique hotel. Since no efforts whatsoever were made to keep it as a bell foundry, the foreman, Nigel Taylor, proposed a management buyout and Factum Foundation, an existing foundry, have a well-developed business plan to keep it as a Foundry, I can see no possible legal justification for permitting change-of-use.

Are you able to tell me the names of the legal team ( and firms/chambers) who will represent the objectors at the enquiry? Very many thanks. Timothy
Yes, Rupert Warren QC. Said to be the best. Charles
