As part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Greengage produced the energy, waste, water resources, socio-economic impact assessment and cumulative impact assessment technical chapters for the Environmental Statement (ES). As the site was considered to contain playing fields, the statutory consultee Sport England, expressed concerns over the potential loss of any open space recreational facility. To address these concerns we provided an addendum to the ES which assessed the Leisure, Recreation and Sports Facility impacts that may have occurred as a result of the proposed development.

This addendum also involved the calculation of the proposed development’s child yield and the application of the play space requirements as per the Mayor’s Supplementary Planning Guidance Providing for Children and Young People’s Play and Informal Recreation. We liaised extensively with the GLA and the Council to ensure that the child yield multipliers that were applied were the most appropriate.

Consequently, our expertise in the field of child yield calculations enabled us to also facilitate discussions with the Council regarding the level of S106 contributions required for education. As a result, the applicants were assured that they were committing to the most appropriate level of contributions, given the nature of the development and the land provided on site for a future school. In addition to the EIA, Barking and Dagenham Council requested that a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) be carried out for the proposed development. Greengage produced, as part of the planning application, the HIA as a standalone application document to the satisfaction of the Primary Care Trust – the consultee involved in this regard.
