Plans have been approved to build an 81-apartment development on former industrial land in Watford. The Whippendell Marine site will be sensitively transformed to blend with the local environment, by brownfield land developers, Oakford Homes. Motion demonstrated that the residential development would not cause severe impact on the local transport network.
Phase 3 of the Brentford Lock West regeneration project has been approved, including proposals for 452 new homes, commercial and retail spaces, and new community facilities. The scheme is part of a long-term plan to rejuvenate the west London location. Transport and travel planning advice was provided by Motion for the award-winning development.
The recent report by the Landscape Institute (LI) and Construction Industry Council (CIC) has highlighted that delivery of sustainable drainage (SuDS) in England is currently a long way behind where it should be. Motion’s Richard Bettridge explores the underlying issues.
A Marks & Spencer food store, an Aldi supermarket and a care home are open for business on a former caravan park in Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. The first residents have moved in to a 216-home Taylor Wimpey development on the site.
