NOTES: The original scheme dates from 1967. In 1969 planning permission was promised pending the complete acquisition of the site by the developer. However, by the time Palumbo was ready to resubmit his plans, the Bank area had become a designated conservation area and many of the Victorian buildings that the scheme proposed to replace had been listed. In 1982 the scheme was refused consent. This was the 'Updated/Preferred Scheme', produced after Mies's death by William Holford & Partners in 1984, and submitted to the City Architect and Planning Officer on 5 March that year.
