Cemex Plant – Battersea
TRICKY CONCRETE BATCHING PLANT DEVELOPMENT ADJACENT BATTERSEA POWER STATION WINS APPROVAL
Although there has been a concrete plant at Kirtling Wharf in Cringle Street for almost 50 years, the relocation and upgrade of the batching plant within the existing site posed numerous planning challenges.
The construction activity at both the Battersea Power Station site and the entire Nine Elms opportunity area, alongside other major regeneration projects in London, have significantly increased demand, meaning existing permanent and temporary facilities need immediate upgrade.
In addition, Thames Water propose to use part of the site as one of the 24 access points for the Thames Tideway Tunnel (TTT) project, for which a separate planning application for the site has been submitted.
Key issues centred around environmental concerns, including noise and dust pollution, vehicular traffic and flooding.
Our work with the planning consultants included support with public consultation materials, advice on view planning and a flexible delivery of imagery to suit a demanding timetable.
Planning consent subject to conditions was granted in January 2014.
