This development sought the extension and conversion of an existing vacant building, to provide ground and basement retail together with 9 self-contained flats over upper floors and erection of a detached house; together with associated landscaping, access way and parking.
The approach to the site is design led and responds to the constraints associated with the site successfully. NT+A worked proactively with the Council to mitigate any residual impacts associated with the proposed development
The development will deliver ten homes of a high standard of accommodation for those future occupiers, with limited implications for the amenity of surrounding neighbouring occupiers.
In approving the development, LB Havering attributed weight to the current unused nature of the site and it was considered that the proposals represented an efficient use of land, in a sustainable location.
