A good example of the value of a Transport Technical Note is “Oak Tree Mews” development in Finchley, Barnet.
KRONEN were appointed following a difficult and unsupportive pre-application engagement.
The application site was a triangular piece of vacant undeveloped land with a large central oak tree at Osborn Gardens / Devonshire Road / Aberdare Gardens with two constrained and unmade points of access.
In terms of planning the site had almost been sterilized for future applications by three recent refusals / dismissed appeals.
The proposal sought three dwellings with off-street parking.
The main transport issues addressed in the Transport Technical Note for the proposal were the proposed shared surface new site accesses, site layout, parking provisions and traffic-related amenity issues.
The full planning application was approved in late 2018 at LB Barnet planning committee.
The LB Barnet application number was “18/2546/FUL”.
