Article Index

It illustrates the proposals that have been drawn up for the Inn by Hugh Broughton Architects over the last six months, in response to a project brief prepared under the guidance of the Project Pegasus Steering Committee, chaired by the Reader. The designs form the basis of a planning application, submitted on 31 January 2017. In June 2017 the City of London planning committee resolved to grant planning consent. 

The planning report noted the strong public interest in approving the planning application. The City of London Planning officials described the proposal as one “which comprises the completion of the original design for the building, and the creation of a barristers’ training centre which would reinforce the legal character of the Inner Temple and sustain the building's long-term use”.

The aim of this section of the website is to inform Members, Professional Tenants, Residents and Stakeholders about Project Pegasus and what it is intended to provide. It is an opportunity to contribute any comments they think will assist in ensuring that the Project fulfils the Inn’s requirements as fully as possible.
