Working with London Borough of Hounslow Council we attained planning permission for the demolition of a current derelict Morrisons, to be replaced with a mix of 176 affordable homes and social housing, alongside an 8,000 sq ft food store.
For a A2 Dominion we have designed homes that incorporate residential, outdoor spaces, and a retail space that will be both viable as a business and offer choice and convenience to local residents.
The London Plan SPG ‘Shaping Neighbourhoods: Play and Recreation’, has been used to establish the play space requirements of the Bath Road scheme. The calculation suggests a total of 863m2 of child play space is required across the development. Of this, 430m2 is to be for under 5’s, and will be a landscaped space including engaging play features for young children, and places for carers to sit and talk.
Housing will be 50% social housing, and 50% intermediate tenures (option to buy or rent).
