Westworld, Hanger Lane


Blue Coast Capital
Transport Planning

Planning consent has been received for the demolition of existing offices and construction of a new logistics unit at the Westworld Site, West Gate, Hanger Lane, London.  Motion supported developer Blue Coast Capital, overcoming the potential variations in travel demand in a highly sensitive location.

The application involved careful negotiation with TFL and the local authority as the site is in a strategic industrial location (SIL), adjacent to the A40 Hanger Lane gyratory and the headquarters of fashion retailer River Island.

The new overall building footprint remains the same, but the scheme has been designed to accommodate an additional one to three floors of warehousing space.  Due to the floor area potentially tripling, travel demand and parking could vary.  Motion provided a balanced proposal that was acceptable to all parties for every possible configuration.

Sustainability impact:

  • Effective use of land in constrained urban location
  • Development of a Grade A, BREEAM “Outstanding”, EPC A building

We set out to ensure that a future occupier could install mezzanine floors at their discretion.  Motion played an integral role in unlocking this highly sensitive aspect of the planning permission.”
