Question 34: Are there specific types of employment spaces that we should seek to support in this area?

Representation ID: 33282

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Montagu Evans LLP

Representation Summary:

The Crown Estate notes and supports a range of employment uses across the AAP area and the potential for closer integration between uses within sites and across the AAP area as a whole.

Also notes and supports the concept of "hybrid" buildings capable of a mix of employment uses. A wider range of uses envisaged for the AAP area should be explored. The inherent flexibility of such an approach and its potential for co-locating and intensification would allow likely changes in working practices, the live:work balance over the AAP period and align with the overall vision for sustainability and innovation.

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Montagu Evans LLP

Representation Summary:

The Crown Estate notes and supports the recognition that the AAP area is not just about regeneration, but should also acknowledge the potential for the intensification and potential diversification of the range of uses on existing established sites.

Representation ID: 33286

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Montagu Evans LLP

Representation Summary:

The Crown Estate note and support the need for the AAP (and potentially planning permissions granted within the AAP area, particularly where they are for major development that might be delivered in phases over a material period) to
include clear review mechanisms to reflect changes in circumstances and standards over the lifetime of the AAP development. This could include, but should not necessarily be limited to, sustainability standards.

Respondent: Montagu Evans LLP

Representation Summary:

Note and support a comprehensive approach to transport including a strategy that prioritises journeys made by more sustainable means to, from and within the AAP area and potentially includes a co-ordinated approach to car parking and servicing (e.g. service delivery hubs). This approach needs to be flexible having regard to likely advances in technology. The AAP should continue to recognise the need for a balance across all transport modes, including the car, which reflects operational requirements of existing and potential occupiers. An approach which seeks to reduce car parking in existing developments needs careful consideration.
