Go-ahead for 1,000-home north London B&Q revamp despite causing ‘high magnitude of change’

A north London council has resolved to approve plans for up to 1,049 homes on the site of a former B&Q, after planners advised that, despite the 18-storey scheme's appearance representing a “high magnitude of change” for the area, it was consistent with local and national planning policy.
