All homes have direct access to private amenity spaces in the form of balconies/ terraces. In addition, the southernmost corner of the site would be planted with biodiverse planting and would comprise areas of bench seating. New trees and plants would be inserted along the street boundary to create a visual transition between the public realm and the amenity spaces of the new development. A buffer of planting will be provided along the eastern boundary of the site between the building and the boundary of the railway line

Planning History

Having undertaken two pre-app meetings supported by consultation events with stakeholders and community groups, the scheme (full application submitted in December 2015), whilst endorsed by LB Richmond planning officers, was refused by committee in August 2016. The decision was overturned by planning inspector at the end of a public inquiry, concluding that the scheme will 'provide a high quality contemporary design response appropriate to its location.'
