Deptford Terrace Development - this project is potentially quite a large one.

However, it is currently at the pre-application stage and very few details have been released via the press.

There is a project website:
http://deptfordterrace.co.uk/.

As discussed above, this does seem to be a large development, so should have its own 'Project Thread', so that we can follow it through to fruition.

I will obtain the details, and start the 'detail' of the thread in the next post . . .

Deptford Terrace.


Deptford Terrace is a riverside development at the gateway entrance to Sunderland City Centre.

The site is currently occupied by a 260,000 sq ft warehouse on a 16-acre site.

Plans are currently being worked up to create a space that allows for a mixture of complimentary mid-urban uses.

With plans to tie the space in with its riverside park and increase the lifestyle integration with the River Wear.

The plans allow for a scheme that would accommodate up to 750,000 sq ft, including offices, hotel, health club, restaurants and housing.


Site Location:

The Application Site (Figure 1) is located within the built up area of Sunderland to the west of the city centre, and is in a predominately industrial area (see Figures 2 and 3).





The site is located to the south of the River Wear, and east of the Queen Alexandra Bridge.

The Application Site is bounded to the west and north by Deptford Terrace, beyond which lie Queen Alexandra Bridge and the River Wear respectively, to the south by Pallion New Road (A1231) and to the east by various industrial workings.

The Application Site occupies a prominent gateway location in relation to the City Centre and by reason of its prominent location is clearly visible from the Queen Alexandra Bridge and Pallion New Road when entering the city centre from the west.

The Application Site has an area of approximately 6 hectares, the majority of which is occupied by buildings and hard standing. The site is located on a terraced plot on the valley side of the River Wear.

The site slopes from south to north, from approximately 27m AOD to 14m AOD, towards the River Wear. Grassland forms the banking on the southern boundary of the site, between the A1231 and the main site level (approximately 4 – 5 metres vertical from base to top of banking). Mature woodland forms the northern site boundary on a steep area of banking formed between the site edge and the road 5 – 10 metres below.

There are two large modern warehouse buildings. The warehouses are located within the centre of the site, and are built with metal sheeting on a metal roofi ng frame.

A derelict / disused brick factory building is located in the southwest of the site, this is understood to have previously been a galvanising works. An electrical sub-station with associated brick building is located within the central west. A garage/workshop is also present in the western area adjacent to the electrical sub-station.

Open spaces within the site are predominantly occupied by hardstanding. There is no formal landscape treatment within the site.


Design Vision & Principles:

This section sets out the design vision upon which the planning application proposals have been developed. It identifies the key factors that have influenced the evolution of the indicative master plan design.

Concept & Vision:

Deptford Terrace is located at a strategic western ‘gateway’ into the City Of Sunderland, adjacent to the Queen Alexandra Bridge (Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor). The site is a level platform created for the two large existing distribution warehouses, with existing access points to the west and north-east off Deptford Terrace. The wider vision for the site is to create a mixed-use redevelopment that connects with the riverside to the north and reenforces the regenerating areas to the west, south and east (see Figure 4 for the Illustrative Overall Master Plan).



The concept embraces the wider site and looks to opportunities beyond the site boundary – much of which is owned by Sunderland City Council, particularly towards the river. The core of the concept is a new major access road from Pallion New Road, leading to a central ‘spine road’ and a new public square that opens towards the river, with pedestrian routes down to the waterside. Larger commercial and mixed-uses could be sited along the southern side – to take advantage of the change in level for undercroft parking and to benefit from highly visible frontages (hotel, leisure, offices). The northern part of the site offers opportunities for mixed residential development, taking advantage of the river views and the existing riverside park.


Roads and Levels:

Three main site access points could be provided, two already exist off Deptford Terrace and a major new signalised junction could be proposed off Pallion New Road, with full pedestrian crossings.

This new road could lead to the centre of the site, where it could join a landscaped ‘spine route’ from which individual development plots could be accessed. The change in level between Pallion New Road and the existing site ‘platform’ allows for undercroft parking to be constructed without excavation – simply by providing a ground floor deck for the buildings.

Therefore much of the unsightly open car parking usually associated with hotels or B1 offices could be accommodated in one or two basement levels, allowing the ground floors of the buildings to be at normal street level along Pallion New Road.

The residential areas to the north of the site will have a mixture of off-street grade parking and undercroft parking under the square. Pedestrian and cycle routes into the site will be provided and where possible will link with existing footpaths, cycle routes and public transport stops. A key intention is to work with adjacent landowners to provide a major pedestrian route to Millfi eld Metro Station (approx 500 metres) and in turn provide routes through the Deptford Terrace site to the riverside for the wider community.

The illustrative masterplan shows a strategy for redevelopment, but like all good masterplans it needs to have the fl exibility to respond to changing requirements. However, the key urban pattern of the three access points, the gateway and the spine road and the central public square provides a robust framework for a new urban quarter.

The urban form illustrated in the Deptford Terrace masterplan strategy follows these principles:

• A clear, simple urban framework focused upon a central public square with river views

• A strong street frontage to Pallion New Road

• Parking undercrofts to raise the ground floor to street evel along Pallion New Road

• Landscaped arrival courts or squares for the commercial buildings

• Taller building frontages to frame the new access road and to reinforce the new riverside square

• Concentration of active frontages along the new entrance axis and public square

• Residential development arranged in urban density streets and terraces

• Taller terraced housing along the northern site edge to reinforce the top of the river cliff

• Taller buildings to give focal points to axes and gateways

• Street tree planting to define major pedestrian through routes


Residential:

A mixture of terraced family housing with gardens and apartments, arranged in streets, courts and around squares


Offices:

Three and four storey B1 offices with capabilities for both sub-division and linking, arranged around a landscaped arrival court


Leisure/Hotel/Local Retail:

Prominently sited on the major approach road into the city, a mixed use site for a hotel, a leisure club and local retail


Public Realm:

A quality infrastructure of hard and soft landscaping with a prominent public square overlooking the river.


Planning Application:

To provide flexibility over what part of the overall site the Phase 1 scheme might cover, the application approach includes an application boundary for the whole site but limits the Phase 1 area to up to 1/3 of the overall site area.

This enables a Phase 1 scheme to come forward in a variety of ways as illustrated in Figure 6.

Planning permission is being sought from Sunderland City Council for the ‘Planning Application Booklet’, which contains the application forms, certificates and development parameters for the proposed Phase 1 development.

The description of development for which planning permission is sought is as follows: “Redevelopment of site for one or more land uses including offices, residential, hotel, car showroom, educational facilities, retail and leisure; and other associated works including the development of new road accesses if required.


Proposed Development Parameters/Principles:

• The peak trips generated by the Phase 1 development will not exceed the maximum peak trips associated with the existing planning permission for the site;

- 200 trips in AM peak

- 240 trips in PM peak

• The Phase 1 development will occupy no more than 2 hectares within the overall site; and:

• The height of the Phase 1 development will not exceed the maximum AOD heights, as indicted by the different colours shown on the Parameters Plan. The Illustrative Masterplan Options for Phase 1 (Figure 6) show how the Phase 1 development might come forward at Reserved Matters stage in accordance with the development parameters proposed for approval at the outline stage (see Figure 5).




Illustrative Masterplan Options:




FINALLY . .

1 - I have added the Project - Sunderland Area TAG to this thread (as with ALL 'Project Threads') so that you can call up a screen-list of all of our projects from this thread, if ever required. See 'TAGS' unerneath Post Reply, at the bottom of each thread page.

2 - I have sent a 'PM' to North East 4 Ever, to add the main details from this thread to our forum 'Development Summary'. This one will be our "20th" Project, I think!!

Looks like this has gone no further and perhaps as was planned will not as the project website is no longer in use.

I haven't heard or read anymore about this project, ---but it will be a shame if this has been mothballed or worse pulled altogether, --the proposals for Deptford Terrace were for a mixed use --and would be excellent for that area of the City, --it will be very disappointing if the Development doesn't happen.

Exactly with new houses being built on the Cornings site the place could take off.

Yes I hope it hasn't been scrapped, ---and the new houses on the old glass works you mentioned, ---these are part of a large Development by St Modwen, -which I believe it's a five year plan.

According to the documents page of the planning application there was revised plans received on the 25th June 2013 so something is still happening.

So it looks like it's the council that have been holding this one up. How hard can it be to approve an outline planning application?

There's no wonder people don't want to invest in Sunderland, this is just like Sunderland Marine project 10 years ago. It would appear that nothing has changed at Sunderland Planning department.

How do you know it's the planning department that are holding this up? If it is they want to be ashamed. I know we don't just want any old thing building but it looks pretty good to me and at a major in road to the city as well.
