Compulsory Purchase Order: Chrisp Street

The council has made a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), which will now be submitted to the Secretary of State for their consideration.

A CPO is a legal process that allows the council to acquire land interests by compulsion where it has not been possible to agree a voluntary purchase.  Notices have been served on all parties with a land interest, site notices have been erected and notices will be published in the local press in order to widely publicise the making of the order.

The regeneration scheme is being led by a partnership between Chrisp Street Developments Limited (CSDL) a wholly owned subsidiary of Telford Homes, who will be responsible for delivering the scheme, and Poplar HARCA who will be responsible for owning and managing the current and future affordable housing on the site.

The scheme will provide a revitalised district centre, new and improved retail floor space, new evening economy for Poplar (proposed to be delivered through the provision of a multi-screen cinema, food and drink premises, a new food/anchor store to the north of the site to promote activity and permeability), new market canopy and infrastructure with significant public realm enhancement, a multi-use function/community centre, local employment and training opportunities and 643 new residential dwellings.
