How the scheme has evolved following feedback from the local community

You said

We did

We are concerned about the building height

Reduced overall height of the building by 3m
We are concerned about possible overlooking into properties on Emilia Close and Poppy Drive from the location of the proposed offices

The office space has been relocated to the north elevation of the main logistics building to offer more privacy to neighbours and activate Southbury Road.

Can you improve the proposed elevations?
We have simplified the elevation treatment with green wall zones consolidated to highlight the main entrance and reduced glazing.

We want a mix of units

We will be providing units for local commercial, business and service uses on the Southbury Road frontage

Have you considered the impact on neighbouring properties?

The proposed building line is set back up to 25 metres from railway line and another 25 metres from the rear of residential properties on Poppy Drive and Emilia Close. The proposed illuminated signage and lighting in the car park have been designed with regard for impact on neighbouring properties.The proposed scheme will also achieve air quality neutral impact.
Do you have a plan to manage traffic impact?
British Land is updating the previous detailed Scoping Note and is in the process of agreeing the transport modelling approach with LB Enfield / TFL. The proposed scheme has been fully tracked to ensure safe and efficient access for HGVs, LGVs, cars, refuse and emergency vehicles.
We want more urban greening

We have introduced an enhanced tree-lined green buffer on the eastern Site boundary, further tree planting on Southbury Road and along the southern and western boundaries as well as within the staff car park to the south.

We are concerned about the amount of parking spaces proposed

In accordance with Enfield Council and GLA policies we have reduced the overall number of car parking spaces.

In total 145 spaces will be provided, 38 having electric charing facilities. 15 disabled accessible bays will be provided, as well as 52 van parking spaces.

Are you improving access to the station?

We will be widening and enhancing the access from Southbury Road which will enable safe and efficient access by foot and bicycle.

A new attractive public realm. Within this area there is opportunities for seating, secure bike stands, enhanced lighting and wayfinding.
