Comments on the new 100 Avenue Road Construction Management Plan were due on 15 November 2019. The CMP is the agreement between Camden Council and the developers about the approach to be taken for managing construction works. A version was agreed earlier in the year and the revisions in this round of consultations, focus on and follow from detailed work undertaken since then.
Revisions are in response to concerns raised by Transport for London, especially the developer’s intention to lift large elements of the building into the site from the A41. The plan would have meant the material passing over the entrance to the Swiss Cottage tube station and TfL will not allow this.
The revised plan has rerouted 18 deliveries each day so that they enter the site, rather than being lifted in from a pit lane off the main road. The new movements will mean articulated lorries being far closer to the open space. The CMP envisages fewer lorry trips in total, but the concern is that reduced use of the pit lane and increased use of the site near the open space will reduce air quality.
The Belsize Society has responded to the consultation.
