Working with the community to deliver a high-quality development


Residents Liaison Seminar


From the outset, GMG Real Estate has sought to work with community representatives, community groups and residents to understand potential issues and where possible address these.

A number of seminars were held via Zoom with local residents from both Artillery Mansions and the wider surrounding area. GMG Real Estate will continue to provide updates to residents as the application progresses.

Scope of Consultation


GMG Real Estate is committed to consulting as widely as possible with the community. For this consultation, letters of invitation were sent to 3,255 residential properties and businesses to direct them to the consultation website and provided details on how the consultation would work. The invitation delivery area considered where there was a possibility of potential impact of the proposals on residents and businesses, as well as those living nearby.

Construction and Noise Management


GMG Real Estate is committed to working closely with neighbouring residents to ensure minimal disruption during the construction phase of this project. We will liaise directly with residents living at Artillery Mansions in relation to our plans and how we can work together to ensure minimal disruption to the wider area.

GMG will submit a Construction Management Plan alongside this application which will set out the measures that will be taken to ensure that the development causes minimal disruption and noise pollution for local residents and businesses.

Environmental Sustainability


We are committed to ensuring that the proposed development will be built to be environmentally sustainable.

The proposals will follow the guidance and requirements of the New London Plan which is expected to be published later this year. As such, the development will adopt a zero-carbon emissions targets.

In addition, we are proposing to undertake improvement works to existing building services systems which will be updated to ensure maximum energy efficiency. The proposals include the provision of highly efficient Air Source Heat Pumps for the proposed additional two floors.

Daylight/Sunlight


We appreciate that residents of neighbouring and adjacent properties will be concerned that any additional height will result in a loss of sunlight or light spillage. As part of this application, we will conduct a full Daylight/Sunlight Assessment which will be submitted with the planning application.

In response to concerns regarding light spillage and overlooking, we will be removing windows at the back of the building on the two new floors which will stop any light spillage.

Crime Prevention


We understand that the area has existing issues relating to crime and anti-social behaviour. We are absolutely committed to ensuring that the design of our proposals to improve community safety and crime prevention.

We have prepared a Security Needs Assessment Report to set out what measures should be considered to achieve maximum safety for local residents. Any recommendations from this report will be reviewed and implemented in the final design of the scheme where appropriate.
