A long awaited decision has been made on the proposed Bloomsbury Research Institute, to be constructed behind the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) building at 15-17 Tavistock Place. It has been granted full planning permission by Camden Council, subject to a Section 106 legal agreement.
No start date has yet been given for these works, which are anticipated to last for 2 years. The Marchmont Association has written to key stakeholders and partner organisations to make them aware of this development. We will also be seeking to assist with the smooth delivery of this major building project, for the benefit of the local community, through our participation in the Community Liaison Group, which the sponsors of the project, University College London and LSHTM, undertook to establish as a means of communicating with stakeholders for the duration of the construction.
The Construction Management Plan (CMP) was agreed as part of the planning consent and can be viewed on the Council’s planning pages relating to this project. Alternatively, we will provide interested parties with copies of the CMP on request, by using the ‘Get Involved’ link on the MA web site.
Residents and businesses will have all kinds of concerns, including noise, vibrations, dust, working hours – not to mention the impact on Tavistock Place and other streets which are on the intended route to be used by heavy goods vehicles servicing the construction works.
