Where: Langdon Park, Tower Hamlets

Who For: Mount Audley Group

What: 28 residential units, 128 sqm commercial floorspace

Architect: Stephen Davy Peter Smith

These proposals next to the then new DLR station at Langdon Park involve the redevelopment of a former ATS garage with a slender, 10 storey tower comprising a ground floor commercial unit with high quality apartments above. The scheme has 28 units or 80 habitable rooms, on a site of 580 sqm, giving a density of 1379 hrph. The development makes provision for 37.5% affordable housing. CMA Planning helped to draw up the proposals for this site and coordinated the planning submission, which included instructing / briefing sub consultants on behalf of the client and reviewing the various documents produced. As part of the planning application, CMA worked with the team and Planning Officers to address issues including wind impact, disabled and family housing provision, land use, quality of materials and green travel. CMA also undertook discussions with Housing Officers, including producing and submitting a 3 Dragons Toolkit financial appraisal, to ensure the option to apply for Housing Corporation grant funding in the future remained. Advice was also given on Section 106 matters, which were limited to affordable housing and a car free agreement. Planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets under delegated powers in July 2008.
