Occupying a prominent site surrounding the proposed new location for the US Embassy, this 6.07 hectare site will provide up to 249,604m2 of mixed-use development including between 1,601 and 1,994 new homes. The scheme includes nine buildings for residential, retail and commercial use, with new areas of open space for community and leisure use including a linear park.

Waterman co-ordinated an Environment Impact Assessment for the site including detailed baseline surveys. Waterman then prepared an Environmental Statement and Sustainability Statement which were submitted with the planning application in April 2011.

Multi-disciplinary advice was provided to the design team on issues including ecology, land contamination, air quality and noise. We successfully addressed potential issues on site associated with flood risk, which involved significant liaison with the Environment Agency.

The Sustainability Statement set out the results of a sustainability appraisal and outlined the key initiatives proposed with respect to sustainable construction, energy and water conservation, the minimisation of noise, pollution and flooding and the conservation and enhancement of the natural environment and biodiversity.

Following planning consultations, revisions were made to the scheme and an ES Addendum was submitted in October 2011 and the scheme was granted planning permission in February 2012.
