The proposal will deliver a redevelopment which will make a positive contribution to the employment hub and will effectively re-develop a brownfield site to deliver much needed industrial uses and associated employment
Attic are currently expanding rapidly in London. They were seeking a consultant who could see through the successful planning permission of the Beckton store which would allow for a quick opening of the unit.
We provided planning, economics and environmental expertise to ensure the successful planning application.
Planning permission was approved by the London Borough of Newham for the redevelopment of Attic’s 5th site at Claps Gate Lane, which includes a new self-storage building and an industrial building.
The application was referred for approval to the Mayor of London via the Greater London Authority.
The scheme will deliver c. 12,000sqm of floorspace in Use Classes E/B2/B8 amounting to 8,832sqm GIA of self-storage building and 3,331sqm GIA of industrial building, across two new buildings with associated landscaping. The self-storage unit is set to be operated by Attic Self-Storage and will be their fifth operational store in London.
We were successfully able to demonstrate that the development makes efficient use of a brownfield site, which partly currently comprises a car park, to deliver much needed industrial uses and associated employment. The proposal will also deliver biodiversity and tree value net gain.
Economic benefits will arise through the provision of temporary jobs during the construction phase of the scheme, which is expected to be around 12 months. In total, an estimated 106 temporary jobs could be supported during the scheme’s build phase.
It is also estimated that the scheme will generate annual business rates revenues of around £220,000 when fully completed.
