“As planning consultants for 21 Moorfields, the new Deutsche Bank pre-let development for Landsec, GVA worked with David and Natalie from Momentum on the planning application for the site.
Having previously secured two planning permissions on the site, both of which have been implemented and the site having been cleared, Momentum had to carefully consider how to benchmark the transport impacts of the existing site. Working with the Environmental Consultants on the project, they came up with the innovative idea of using a “future baseline”, so as not to skew the data given the temporary vacant state of the site.
In addition, following some objections from the adjoining residents with regard to highways impacts, Momentum worked with the other project consultants to produce in-depth data to present to residents to show that the highways impacts would be minimal including in relation to noise, air quality and hours of delivery. As a result, many residents withdrew their objections on the proposals.
Finally, working with specialist consultants, Momentum collaborated to deliver an animation which would show how the servicing and loading sequence would work debunking any myths on how the loading would operate which ultimately led to a positive recommendation at Committee.
We very much enjoyed working with Momentum and their collaborative, pro-active and positive attitude to finding solutions on the project meant it was a real benefit to have them as part of the team.”
