Demolition of existing buildings and the construction of five three bed terraced dwellings with parking, landscaping and ancillary works.
The site comprises vacant gymnasium buildings, hard surfacing and parking spaces and is set back from the main road with access constrained due to the proximity of neighbouring properties.
The scheme, which proposes the replacement of the existing gymnasium buildings and hard surfacing with a terrace of five new dwellings with associated parking and landscape works, was approved in December 2018.
JB Planning Associates was successful in obtaining planning permission for the redevelopment of the site. The site was subject to a previous planning application, which was approved, for the redevelopment of the site for housing but was never implemented. This proposed scheme makes efficient use of land within this urban area of Dagenham and replaces redundant, dilapidated buildings with five family sized homes, boosting housing supply in a sustainable location.
On this project, JB Planning Associates were responsible for producing the Supporting Planning Statement, coordinating a team of consultants for the preparation of the application submission and managing the scheme as it progressed through the planning application process including responding to queries raised by the Council and consultees.
