We are planning a new concrete plant in Cringle Street, Battersea and want to give the local community the opportunity to understand the proposals and to comment.

 

 

The Plans

A single, modern concrete batching plant is proposed for the southern part of the site. In line with the current operation, the plant is intended to have the ability to operate 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week to meet market demands and facilitate deliveries of materials via the river, which are constrained by the tides. The plant will have the same capacity as the current two combined plants.

Our proposals are being carefully designed to reduce local environmental impacts in comparison to the existing site, particularly in terms of dust and air quality. For example, all aggregate storage will be enclosed (compared to the existing open bins), and conveyors transferring aggregates from barges and around the site will be enclosed (they are currently open).

In order to accommodate the aggregates required on the smaller site, the storage bins will increase in height. Overall, the tallest structures (currently proposed at 28.5m high) will be approximately 1.5m higher that the tallest structures Wandsworth Council resolved to approve in 2010.

We believe the plant will play a key part in the future regeneration of the surrounding area.

The scheme allows for approximately 50,000 heavy goods vehicle journeys to and from the site per annum. This is an additional 26 journeys (or 13 heavy goods vehicles) per day, based on an average 271 working days per year. The current daily peak of 270 movements (plus an additional 40 at night time between 11pm and 6am) is unlikely to increase.

A Transport Assessment, to be submitted with the planning application, will consider the potential impacts that traffic could have on the road network. A strip of land will be retained adjacent to the river for the purpose of providing a public riverside walk, should one be delivered on the TTT and Waste Transfer Station sites adjacent.
