Locomotive Workshop redevelopment SSDAs - Exhibition until 15 Dec 2017
Mirvac originally split its proposal for the Locomotive Workshop into two but the Department of Planning has placed both the Mirvac DAs on exhibition together. There are differences between the documents as they deal with different ends of Loco. The Bays 1-5 DA deals with the heritage Bays 1 & 2, the proposed retail and the impact of the proposed supermarket on heritage. Bays 6-16 deal with the commercial end of the development. The issues related to the movable heritage collection and how the development deals with the heritage fabric of the buildings goes across both DAs.

The below proforma submission has been put together by ARAG based on material supplied to REDWatch. Please take what you find useful, express it in your own words and then make your submission on the major Projects portal.

It is widely recognise that there are many occupants in the estate that are not officially on the LAHC records. These however are the official LAHC demographics.

The figures show how many of different size units currently exist on the various blocs and buildings.
