The site is treated as a shared surface, including the right of way access to the locks, to form a coherent public realm for those walking along the canal and for those who live there.

There is also an enclosed green/play space on the River Lea at Block A.

Every unit has a balcony sized according to the number of bedrooms and the upper level units have integrated roof terraces to supplement private amenity space.

Planning History
