It would appear advisable to concentrate the objections to that which the Secretary of State considers important. His letter says,

“On the information so far available to the Secretary Of State the following are matters which the Secretary of State wishes to be informed about for the purposes of his consideration of the application:

(a) whether an element of affordable housing should be provided on the application site as part of the proposed development. In particular, how the proposal relates to the current and emerging development plan policies on this issue, to PPG3 and circular 6/98 “Planning and Affordable Housing” and how it relates to the Governments objective to encourage mixed and inclusive communities.

(b) the suitability of the design and scale of the proposal (PPG1) having regard to the Twickenham Riverside Conservation Area (PPG15) and the impact on and views from the River Thames (RPG3b).

(c) any other relevant matters”

Please write: all letters do count.

If you want a response from the Planning Inspectorate sent to you, please remember to include your address.
