Plots 53 and 54 are located on Brent Terrace, Cricklewood, NW2. Brent Terrace is a cul-de-sac of residential properties located between Claremont open space and the railway sidings forming part of the Cricklewood depot. The development will be placed between Brent Terrace and Clitterhouse Crescent. Forty-seven homes will be built with 30 homes on plot 53 and a further 17 homes on plot 54.
A range of two, three, and four bedroom homes will be built throughout the development. Thirty of the homes will be for secure tenants of Whitefield Estate and sixteen will be resident leaseholders who wish to enter shared equity ownership with L&Q.
The height of the building will be ground floor plus two storeys. There will between 42-47 parking bays which is roughly one new space for each of the homes. The hedgerow that will be removed to allow for construction will be replaced once the buildings are nearly finished. There will also be a doorstep play area for everyone to use.
Since L&Q was appointed to build the new homes on plot 53 and 54 in October 2018, a detailed design period has begun. Planning permission for the new homes was granted in 2014 and L&Q’s design and technical team are now finalising all the details within the homes and exactly how the buildings will be constructed.
Drainage surveys will be carried out within the Brent Terrace road area the weekend of 26 September and may possibly run into the weekend of 3 October.
The purpose of the survey is to check the condition of the existing drainage system before construction works begin. There will therefore be a team working within the road itself lifting the existing manholes throughout Brent Terrace. Whilst the operatives are working in this area traffic marshals will be in place to assist with traffic.
Construction Traffic Management Plan
Main construction works are due to start later in the year, this is dependent on pre-commencement conditions being met which will allow for work to begin. One of these conditions is the agreement of a construction traffic management plan. This outlines how L&Q will manage construction work on plots 53 and 54 and minimise the impact on residents living close by.
To keep you informed about what construction traffic is anticipated from materials and staff coming to site, L&Q has developed a fact sheet that summarises the detail of their emerging construction traffic management plan. You will find this fact sheet here.
This will be used to draft the formal planning submission to Barnet’s planning team, which will be submitted in July. The full draft construction traffic management plan can be found here.
Before submitting this document, L&Q welcome your views on the plan. Please contact Simone Taylor at STaylor1@lqgroup.org.uk with your comments, or if you would like to arrange a meeting to discuss the details of the draft plan.
