Kingston 'microflat' scheme goes before planners

  • Comment
This environmentally friendly mixed-use scheme by Paul Davis & Partners will be submitted for planning tomorrow.

With no plans for any car parking spaces, the £2.5 million 'microflat' and retail scheme, in Kingston-upon-Thames in Surrey, will particularly appeal to keen cyclists.

The project will include 30 studio units - four of which will be affordable - inspired by the small apartments pioneered by Piercy Conner Architects.

The scheme will also conform to the council-backed accessibility initiative, 'the lifetime homes assessment' which takes into account the property's future in terms of its adaptability for occupancy by disabled users.

It is the first time that Kingston Council has asked for such measures to be incorporated.

Situated on Richmond Road, 150m from Kingston station, the new building will have three 'interpenetrating' boxes and will sit next to a Grade II-listed bingo hall.

The scheme will be seen by the council's planning committee on 9 November and it is hoped construction will commence at the beginning of 2006.
