A controversial decision over plans to build a new shopping mall in Wanstead has been pushed back to September.
A planning inspectorate hearing was due to take place at Redbridge Council on Tuesday over whether to allow a four-storey building housing shops, offices and five flats at the site of J Jolliffe Ltd in the High Street.
But the meeting was abandoned after letters notifying residents of the hearing were sent out to residents a week late.
Developer Mammoth Texryte Limited amended its proposals after having its initial plans rejected by the council and an appeal turned down by the planning inspector.
Snaresbrook ward councillor, Colin Cronin said: “It’s disappointing for both the applicant and residents that it’s been pushed back because of this basic error.”

A council spokeswoman said: “Some of the consultation letters advising residents of the date of the hearing were sent out one week late. The council drew this to the attention of the planning inspectorate ahead of the hearing and suggested it be re-scheduled for a later date.
“However, the planning inspector declined to do this and the meeting went ahead. At this meeting the inspector felt that insufficient notice had been given to objectors and the hearing was adjourned.”
