Further information: The decision notice gave five reasons for the refusal, one of which was concern over the "poor quality and piecemeal nature" of the development.

It was also considered that the scheme would "inhibit the vitality, viability and functionality" of Newham's town centres because it sought to provide commercial space outside of an established town centre zone.
