The government has stepped in to prevent Tower Hamlets LBC from approving a£44m proposal to build a new home for the London International Futures and Options Exchange (Liffe) in Spitalfields.

The Times (p26) reported that the DETR served an 'Article 14' notice stopping the council approving the project until environment secretary John Prescott has seen the plans.

The council's planning committee is scheduled to meet to consider an amendment to the original redevelopment plans that would allow Liffe to consolidate its two trading floors into a single purpose-built site.
