Signal townhouses enhance significantly the previous site condition, particularly in how it relates to the neighboring properties along Mauritius Road. The proposals include new landscaped areas all around and refurbish the existing main access road, Christchurch Way. To the south, it creates a new gated mews which includes grass areas, trees and a small play area for residents. To the north, the proposals create a small street which accommodates parking and landscaped elements. Each townhouse provides high levels of amenity areas, a generous courtyard at ground floor level and a large terrace at the second floor. All units include outdoor secure cycle storage and dedicated refuse cupboards under sedum roof tray, to further contribute to biodiversity and visual amenity.

Planning History

Signal Townhouses form part of the planning application for a larger regeneration area, known as the Alcatel Lucent factory site. The application site comprises the existing factory complex at Greenwich Peninsula West and has long formed part of the industrial base of Greenwich. The uses have included a variety of industrial processes. There have been over the years a number of amendments and extensions to the factory complex, some of which required planning permission, but there are none which are fundamentally relevant to the current proposal. The current scheme was granted consent in October 2014 (14/0293/F) and subject to a Non-Material-Amendment in December 2014 (14/3240/NM) which did not affect the townhouses.
