Silvertown Quays

Greengage undertook extensive survey work and provided strategic green infrastructure advice on this major regeneration scheme in East London.

Greengage is proud and excited to be leading the ecology and green infrastructure (GI) work on the £3.5 billion regeneration of Silvertown Quays. The scheme will revive and re-imagine this historical waterside destination and is at the heart of the regeneration of the Royal Docks in the London Borough of Newham.

Greengage has undertaken a wide range of detailed protected species and habitat surveys at the site, including assessments for overwintering and breeding birds, roosting and foraging bats, protected plants, invertebrates, fish and reptiles.

Further to our masterplan survey work, Greengage worked closely with the design team to develop a Biodiversity Design Guide document intended to inform detailed design for green infrastructure across the site. This aims to ensure consistency in approach, compliance with internal and external policy drivers and provide a robust framework for architects and landscape architects when progressing detailed design for future phases and plots.

The Design Guide sets conservation priorities, outlines roles and responsibilities and prescribes minimum standards for GI design.

Greengage has also provided support on specific phases and plots in relation to BREEAM ecology, protected species licencing requirements (bats and the protected plant Jersey cudweed) and detailed design support for RMA condition discharge requirements, including production of Ecological Management Plans. Plans for Phase 1 of the scheme have received detailing planning permission and include the development of circa. 1,000 new homes and the refurbishment of the Millenium Mills.
