Plans were approved by Tower Hamlets last night

30 August: Tower Hamlets Council approved the plans for the Queen Elizabeth
Hospital development last night in a routine and perfunctory meeting.

No new conditions were imposed and the vote was 5 to 1.
There were 183 individual objections and over 200 signatures on the online petition.
There were no letters of support for the application. 

The application will now be passed to the Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
Lobbying will continue –  watch this space for the next steps.
