Sergison Bates unveils woodland vision for Dagenham Docks

  • Comment

Sergison Bates is to oversee the 30-year transformation of industrial dockland in the Thames Gateway into a sustainable business park

Working with Vogt Landscape, Martin Stockley Associates and Price & Myers, the practice intends to create a ‘working’ woodland landscape for the new London Sustainable Industries Park (LSIP) at Dagenham Dock.

A spokesman for the practice said: ‘The aim is to make the [142 ha] park a wholly self-sustainable enterprise and to develop an industrial symbiosis over time, where businesses use each other’s by-products and share resources.

‘A managed and maintained woodland landscape will provide a strong spatial setting for the park to emerge and develop through to 2040, and fulfils a purpose as a working landscape, as well as physically unifying the park as a single entity.’

The practice was appointed by The Thames Gateway Development Corporation to develop an initial vision, as well as the development framework and future design guidelines for the huge riverside plot which will also house a 16,000 m² ‘clean energy from waste’ plant and a new 3,500m² Institute for Sustainability.

Sergison Bates is working alongside stakeholders the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham, the Environment Agency, Design for London, the Port of London Authority, Transport for London and the site’s existing tenants.

A detailed planning application for the infrastructure and landscape design for the first phase of the park is due to be submitted in January 2010.
