Waterman supports affordable housing programme

Waterman continues to successfully provide engineering and related transport advice to further its clients’ affordable homes aspirations in the greater London area.

Working for several of London’s largest housing associations including the Peabody Trust and Networking Housing Group, Waterman has recently secured planning consent on two brownfield sites in the London Boroughs of Ealing and Newham.

In both cases Waterman was required to demonstrate its technical skills to support the uplift of units by successfully demonstrating the low level impacts on the local highway network that a proposed scheme would cause and to support the regeneration of the former Plaistow Hospital for a 170 residential unit scheme with associated parking. The scheme formed part of an architectural competition to celebrate 150 years of the Peabody organisation

Waterman has also recently supported Hill Residential in its successful consent for the re-development of a brown field site in Walthamstow. The Arcade, a mixed-use scheme comprises of 1,687m² of mixed A1 and A3 uses, 121 residential flats ranging from one to four beds and a new 1,159 seat cinema. The transportation challenges for Waterman were to demonstrate that minimal car parking was required, the scheme being fundamentally ‘car free’ and that alternative modes of travel would be sufficient to support the scheme.
