Work Started on Major Redevelopment, Botley Oxford

Mountford Pigott are pleased to announce that following the finalisation of a number of relocation and temporary phasing elements, the main works for the major redevelopment at Westway Place Botley Oxford have begun.

The scheme which redevelops the existing shopping centre and adjacent buildings has been split into two phases. Phase 1 comprises a 123 bedroom hotel and 261 unit student accommodation split over three blocks sited above a number of new retail units. A Baptist church, community and office spaces are also provided within this initial phase as well as a split level car park and new central boulevard.

Phase 2, which is due to start early next year, will provide 140 residential units split over two blocks, with the entire development due for completion late 2020.

Having taken this though the early design and the detailed planning process, Mountford Pigott will be working alongside contractor SDC to deliver this project on behalf of Botley Development Company.

 

 

Planning Consent for Legacy Buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon

We are delighted to announce that Croydon Council has given planning consent for our proposals on behalf of Haxted Estates Ltd for the redevelopment of the legacy buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon.  This project will see the preservation, re-imagination and sensitive refurbishment of three key legacy buildings which are all that survives of the much larger Cane Hill Hospital complex.  The rest of the Victorian hospital buildings were razed to enable the redevelopment of the site as the GLA’s largest current new-build housing project which is nearing completion and is already partially occupied.  The legacy buildings which comprise a chapel, a water tower and one wing of the administration building occupy pivotal locations around key areas of public realm within the development so their design received intense scrutiny not only from the planners but also from stakeholders including the GLA and housing developer Barratt Homes.  Each building presented its own particular set of challenges and merited its own unique design response, however a single, clear, philosophical approach to the existing fabric and new interventions has guided all design decisions resulting in a harmonious composition for the project.  Detailed design for construction is due to be instructed shortly.

 

Planning Consent in South Norwood

Mountford Pigott is delighted to have received full planning consent for a new development in Enmore Road South Norwood.  We worked very successfully with Croydon Council at the pre-application stage on this residential scheme for nine apartments to enable a smooth and swift passage through the planning process with consent achieved within the statutory determination period.

Mixed-Use Planning Consent

Mountford Pigott is delighted to report that Southwark Council recently granted full planning consent for our proposed mixed-use development in Southampton Way, Camberwell.

The development comprises a self-storage unit arranged over basement, ground and three upper floors (gross area of 8,500m²) as well as 2,250m² of flexi-office space designed to accommodate small businesses and start-ups.

The main design challenge we faced was how to accommodate a large commercial warehouse building in a residential street scene and this challenge was not made easier by a Grade II listed building immediately to the southeast of the development site.  The solution was to locate the warehouse building at the rear of the site and screen it with four-storey office accommodation along the southeast and southwest elevations. The offices address the main road and a new pedestrian route through the site designed to provide a link to future development at the rear of the site.

The yard, which is large enough to accommodate HGVs, is located under the storage building thereby providing acoustic and visual screening for the neighbouring properties.

We are currently developing construction information and hope to see demolition of the existing redundant buildings on site start in June.  Construction commencement of the main development is anticipated later this year.
