We are not pulling your chain: Newbury Park toilet will be turned into a shop and flats

From a public convenience to a convenience store, a toilet in Newbury Park will be turned into a shop with flats above it.
Redbridge Council approved the planning permission last year, but the applicant has reapplied to add more homes and an extension to the site on Horns Road, in between McDonald’s and a garage.
The proposals are asking for a green light to build three one-bedroom and three two-bedroom flats instead of four one-bedrooms units.
The development would have no off-street parking, but there will be storage for 18 bikes on site.
The building will also have a roof garden created on top of it and wildflowers will be planted as a “sound buffer” against traffic from the nearby A12.
The applicant’s agent, Freeman Ankerman Partnership, said: “We are providing a mixed-use scheme with an active frontage, a welcoming residential entrance in a prominent, identifiable position and we have exceeded the requirements for cycle parking.
“We have reduced the scheme by one storey, and we have considered and responded to local noise with enhanced insulation, acoustic ventilation and glazing.
“The amenity provisions exceed requirements and the scheme has been designed to local and national guidelines as before.”
