Maydew House, Abbeyfield Road, Southwark
Planning permission was granted in 2018 for London Borough of Southwark Housing to refurbish 144 dwellings and build a five-storey extension to create 24 new homes at Maydew House adjacent to Southwark Park. Transport planning advice included proposals for the future internal road network, provision for disabled parking, building servicing, refuse collection and emergency vehicle access.
Maydew House forms part of the Abbeyfield Estate regeneration initiative. The new development will be car free, with the exception of eight parking spaces for Blue Badge Holders. The site benefits from good pedestrian and cycle access, and is well-served by public transport. The provision of a new footway connection to Southwark Park will improve access to rail and underground services at Surrey Quays and Canada Water stations.
Combined with the reduced car parking provision, the development is likely to result in fewer trips by motor vehicle on the local highway network. Our transport planners helped to establish the level of parking use on the site and justify the reduction.
“The team’s expertise in transport matters was invaluable during the planning application process. They were very approachable and quick to turn things around.”
