Change of use of building to Mixed Use Class B1(a), B1(b) and B8 purposes, plus external works.
The re-occupation of this building is welcomed. However, we would observe that it will involve the creation of greatly increased office space, and no details are provided of the arrangements for heating, ventilation or air-conditioning services: for example, additional louvres, roof penetrations or flues, or external plant. An external plant compound is shown, but there are no details of the appearance of this, screening, potential noise breakout etc. We would suggest that consent should be conditional upon the provision of satisfactory proposals for addressing these issues.
