Introduction Purpose and structure of the report
The Site selection methodology paper (May 2009 and revised August 2011) a outlines the process to be used to create the preferred list of main tunnel sites, and this process also applies to CSO sites. Paragraph 2.3.31 lists the type of general considerations that will be addressed in each site suitability report. Whether a consideration is relevant to the assessment of a site will depend on available information and professional judgement. This report was prepared through the assessment of information from the perspective of a number of technical disciplines: engineering, planning, environment, property and community. The reports have been prepared on the basis of the information listed in Appendix 1 and this level of information is considered to be appropriate to this stage of assessment. The Site selection background technical paper provides information on the requirements for different types of sites, their sizes and typical activities/ facilities within the sites. Each site suitability report considers a particular site on its own merits. In addition, an Engineering options report was produced, which relates to main tunnel and connection tunnel options. Information from both of these reports will feed into the technical assessment of how well the site may fit in with tunnel design options, ensuring combinations of sites spread across the length of the tunnel route provide a reasonable spatial distribution of sites (that will best assist with the construction of the tunnel, operation and maintenance). The outcomes are reported in the Phase two scheme development report.

Background
The process for selecting sites is set out in the Site selection methodology paper. All sites have previously passed through the following parts of Stage 1: • • Part 1A – Creation of the long list of potential main tunnel (and CSO) sites Part 1B – Creation of a short list of potential main tunnel (and CSO) sites o o o Table 2.2: Long list of main tunnel (and CSO) sites – an assessment against set considerations and values Table 2.3: Draft short list of main tunnel (and CSO) sites – assessment against a list of more detailed considerations Workshops to consider each site to arrive at a short list of sites.

Site suitability report S74SK 1.2.2 The final part of Stage 1 includes this report. The following is an overall summary of all elements that apply to all the sites on the final short list: • Part 1C – Creation of the preferred list of main tunnel (and CSO) sites – site data, site visits, site suitability reports, engineering options report and optioneering workshops that are reported in the Phase two scheme development report.

1.2.3

The Site selection methodology paper also contains a provision for a back-check process in paragraph 2.5.6 that states: “If any sites for any of the main tunnel sites or intermediate sites (or CSO site) are eliminated for any reason, if there are significant changes of circumstances in relation to existing sites or combinations of sites, if new or replacement sites are required or found or if the engineering design develops in unexpected ways then a targeted repeat of stages 1-3 will need to be undertaken in order to fill in any site gaps.”

Consultation
Thames Water’s approach to engagement and consultation for the Thames Tunnel project is outlined in the Statement of Community Consultation and the accompanying Community Consultation Strategy. Thames Water has engaged regularly with all potentially affected London local authorities, other stakeholders and interested parties on sites and the project. Phase one consultation has been completed for all the preferred and shortlisted sites along with the three main tunnel route options. The analysis of the consultation responses is set out in the Report on phase one consultation and Interim engagement report. Any relevant site comments were considered at the post phase one consultation optioneering workshops. The outcomes of these workshops are reported in the Phase two scheme development report. After the workshops, engagement on sites has continued with key stakeholders, and the engineering design for sites has also continued in parallel. In autumn 2011, phase two consultation will provide another opportunity for people to comment on sites.

Site information Site and surroundings
This section provides an overview of all the site information that will be used by one or more disciplines to assess the site in sections 3 to 9 of this report. The site S74SK is the South Dock Marina boatyard, located in the London Borough of Southwark. The site is roughly rectangular in shape and approximately 80 per cent of the site is occupied by a boatyard with a riverside walk running through the north and east of the site. The northern area of the boatyard site (20 to 30 per cent) is made ground with drains visible, with the remainder of the site gravelled. The riverside walk is block paved. Mature trees line the southern and eastern border of the boatyard

Site suitability report S74SK boundary, with younger trees along part of the western boundary, fronting Calypso Way. A site location plan is attached as Appendix 2. 2.1.3 The surrounding area is predominantly residential. The nearest residential properties are located within approximately 12 metres of the site boundary. The north the site is bounded by a lock accessing the South Dock. Beyond the lock are three- to four-storey apartments and townhouses. The River Thames lies to the east. The site also bounds St George’s Square and a car park, which is located to the south of the park and which serves three- to four-storey flats. Calypso Way borders the west of the site, beyond which lies South Dock (marina), four-storey flats and three-storey townhouses. These residences are not orientated towards the site. The site is covered by various planning and environment designations in the Southwark Core Strategy (2011) and saved policies in the Southwark Plan (2007). All the mapped designations, where data was available, are shown on the planning and environment plans in Appendix 3. Photographs of the site and surroundings, together with an aerial photograph of the site, are attached as Appendix 4. There is road access to the site via Plough Way, which is off the A200 (Lower Road). There is no rail network local to the site. There are no existing wharfage/jetty facilities directly serving this site, although it is adjacent to a marina that can be accessed through a lock and is adjacent to the River Thames, although separated from it by the Thames Path. A transport plan for the site is attached as Appendix 5. Third-party assets and significant utilities are listed below and are shown on the services and geology plan in Appendix 6: • • • • • • River wall to the east. Boat storage facilities. Princes Court at the outer northern part of the site. South Dock Marina at the outside western edge of the site. Rainbow Quay building at the outside western part of the site. Earl Storm Outlet runs outside the site to the south, to a discharge point in the river. This is a 2.74m diameter pipe at the south-western corner of the site and changing to twin 1.52x0.91m box culverts at the outfall. At the point of change, there is a manhole chamber. Greenland Pier is located to the north of the site.

Proposed use of site – construction phase
The proposed construction phase layout for the site is located in Appendix 7 – Construction phase layout, and is based on a preliminary assessment. The construction phase layout drawing is illustrative and shows: • • the layout as connection tunnel drive site potential access points.

3.1.3

This drawing provides an initial preliminary schematic layout that has not been optimised. If the site proceeds to the next stage as a preferred site, construction phase layouts would be optimised to minimise impacts. Photographs of typical activities associated with the shaft construction phase are provided in Appendix 7. Potential above-ground construction features (dependent on type of shaft) include: • • • • • approximately 3m high hoarding around the site boundary welfare facilities, temporary structures, approximately 3m high grout plant, approximately 3m to 5m high, including silos mobile crane, approximately 30m high gantry crane, approximately 8m high.

3.1.4

3.1.5

The Thames Path would be severed by the construction site at this location. A diversion route could be provided via the existing footways in Calypso Way and St George’s Square. Preliminary data associated with the construction phase are provided in Table 3.1. Table 3.1 Construction phase data Activity Connection tunnel drive site 4 to 5 years 24 hours Mon to Sun River Road

Proposed use of site – operational phase Introduction
This site would only be used for the construction of the connection tunnel, and no permanent operational structures would be required. The shaft would be backfilled and capped off below ground.

4.2
4.2.1

Restoration and after-use
The site would be restored to its original condition on completion of the construction works. If any buildings were demolished, these would not be reinstated unless required.

Engineering assessment Access
This section should be read in conjunction with Section 7.2.

Road
5.1.2 There would be an existing road to access the site. The site access/egress point would be located on Plough Way, which is 0.9km from the A200 (Lower Road).

Rail
5.1.3 There would be no rail network local to this site.

River
5.1.4 River access and jetty/wharfage facilities would be feasible at this site. The site would need to be extended into the river in order to provide a sufficient working area, and barges could be moored against this temporary cofferdam. However, it would also be necessary to maintain the 100m exclusion zone around Greenland Pier to the north and maintain access to South Dock (Marina), which would impact on river usage/ navigation. It would be necessary for this to be examined in detail in the form of a specific risk assessment (including modelling of barge movements), which would require discussions with and approval of the PLA.

5.2
5.2.1 5.2.2 5.2.3

Construction works considerations
Demolition of the existing small building on the site would likely be required. A temporary cofferdam would be required in order to create a sufficient working area for a long connection tunnel drive site. Data available on third-party assets and significant utilities show that the main items in this area of concern would be the river wall and the storm outfall adjacent to the site in the south. There is existing development to

Permanent works considerations
There would be no permanent works at this site.

Planning assessment Introduction
The planning assessment builds on the advantages and disadvantages reported in Table 2.3 and covers the following areas: • • • Planning applications and permissions Planning context Planning comments.

6.2
6.2.1

Planning applications and permissions
An initial desktop search of the London Borough of Southwark online planning applications database did not identify any planning applications submitted within the last five years applicable to the site.

6.3
6.3.1

Planning context
The current planning policy context for the site is provided from the Southwark Core Strategy, adopted in 2011, saved policies in the Southwark Plan, adopted in July 2007, and the London Plan 2011. The planning designations and policies that are applicable to the site are detailed below. The site is 12m from the nearest residential properties. Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.2, Protection of Amenity, states that planning permission for development will not be granted where it would cause loss of amenity, including disturbance from noise, to present and future occupiers in the surrounding area or on the application site. Core Strategy Strategic Policy 13 seeks to avoid amenity problems which affect how we enjoy the environment in which we work. The site is located within a wider air quality management area. Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.6, Air Quality, states that planning permission will not be granted for development that would lead to a reduction in air quality. Core Strategy Strategic Policy 13 states that Southwark will set high standards and support measures reducing air pollution.

6.3.2

6.3.3

Page 6

Site suitability report S74SK 6.3.4 The site is within the wider Thames Special Policy Area, within which special controls of developments adjacent to the riverside will be imposed in order to enhance the character of the area and ensure continued and improved access to the river. According to Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.29, Development within the Thames Policy Area, all developments within the Thames Policy Area must reflect the strategic importance of the River Thames and its hinterland, protecting and enhancing the area. Proposals that will have an adverse impact on the Thames and/or the Thameside area, or adversely impact on the character of the Thameside area, will not be acceptable. Strategic Policy 12 in the Core Strategy also expects the careful management of design of new development in the Thames Policy Area so that it is sensitive to the many special qualities of the river. The site is located within the wider Borough, Bermondsey and Rivers Archaeological Priority Zone (Site reference 1A, Appendix 8, Archaeological Priority Areas Schedule, of the Southwark Plan, 2007). Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.19, Archaeology, requires that planning applications in such sites will include an archaeological assessment and evaluation of the impact of the development. There may subsequently be a requirement for preservation in situ or, where the development is deemed necessary, conditions to secure the excavation and recording of remains before development begins. Strategic Policy 12 in the Core Strategy expects development to conserve or enhance the significance of Southwark’s heritage assets, their settings and wider historic environment, including archaeological priority zones. Two Grade II listed features are located within the site boundary towards the northeast corner (South Lock Hydraulic Capstans and Mooring Posts) and southeast corner (Parish Boundary Stone) of the area. A further Grade II listed feature is located to the southwest of the site, beyond a road. According to Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.17, Listed Buildings, development proposals involving a listed building should preserve the building and its features of special architectural or historic interest. Core Strategy Strategic Policy 12 also expects development to conserve or enhance listed buildings, their settings and the wider historic environment. Policies 7.11 and 7.12 of the London Plan highlight strategic panoramas, including views from Greenwich Park. Core Strategy Strategic Policy 12 seeks to ensure that strategic views and important local views are preserved. The River Thames to the east of the site is a designated site of importance for nature conservation. According to saved Southwark Plan Policy 3.28, Biodiversity, developments will not be permitted which would damage the nature conservation value of sites of importance for nature conservation (SINCs) and local nature reserves (LNRs) and/or damage habitats, populations of protected species or priority habitats/species identified in the United Kingdom, London or the Southwark Biodiversity Action Plan. Where, exceptionally, such developments are permitted, the council will

Site suitability report S74SK seek mitigation and/or compensation for the damage to biodiversity. Strategic Policy 11 in the Core Strategy seeks to protect important open spaces from inappropriate development which will include SINCs. 6.3.12 Approximately 80 to 90 per cent of the proposed site is a saved Strategic Policy 20 proposals site (100 per cent covered by the proposed site) within the Southwark Plan, with 'uses required' of a boatyard and 'other acceptable uses' listed as A1, A3, A4, and a laundrette, with 'no other uses allowed' stated. Under saved Strategic Policy 20, the ‘uses required’ within the proposals map schedule (Appendix 3) must be included within any development on sites designated on the proposals map. Planning permission may be granted for ‘other acceptable uses’ within this schedule, provided that development for the ‘uses required’ is, has been, or is thereby secured. A temporary planning permission may be granted to allow good use to be made of a vacant site prior to the commencement of a permanent scheme. The site is also located within the wider Canada Water Action Area, designated to provide 875 affordable housing units and office and residential development to support an additional 2,000 jobs. The site is located outside the core action area and, as such, development is expected to be less dense and in keeping with the leafy, suburban character.

Planning comments
A number of planning designations are applicable both on and adjacent to the site. These designations have been identified and described in Section 6.3. From these designations, those relating to air quality, heritage and conservation are of most relevance to the proposed development. Proximity to residential properties is also a consideration. The proposal site is a boatyard within predominately residential surroundings and located next to the bank of the River Thames. Plant machinery and screening boards required during construction may obscure some views of the river from South Dock and surrounding properties, however this should be mitigable. The site is not currently used as a public access point to the river and therefore, no loss of access will occur through the use of this site during construction. No permanent structures will remain on site following construction of the (long) connection tunnel, therefore there will be no permanent impact on local or strategic views. Using the site, albeit temporarily, would fully remove the boatyard use and there may be a requirement for the reprovision of this facility within the locality. The site is within a predominately residential area and set approximately 12m from the nearest dwellings. This separation distance may not be considered sufficient in terms of residential amenity, given the type and longevity of construction works proposed. There is limited scope to relocate the construction works within the site to increase this separation distance and therefore, if the site were used, significant mitigation to avoid

6.4.2

6.4.3

6.4.4

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 8

Site suitability report S74SK negative impacts on residential amenity as a result of noise, dust and traffic movements would be required. 6.4.5 The proposal site is adjacent to the River Thames, a designated site of importance for nature conservation. This is a general designation, covering the entire River Thames. Given the extensive nature of this designation, the purpose of the Thames Tunnel project to improve the environmental condition of the river and the siting of the construction works, with appropriate mitigation, it is unlikely there will be any adverse impact on this designation. However, the construction of a (long) connection tunnel at this location will require a large temporary structure within the river, and the impact of such may require mitigation. A detailed assessment of the likely impact is included in Section 7. In addition, further consideration will be required for the temporary jetty and materials conveyor, both in terms of their potential impact on existing river users within the area, and potential visual and amenity impacts to residents of properties orientated towards the river, looking directly out onto the proposed infrastructure. The visual impact could be difficult to mitigate against and therefore may be considered unacceptable. The listed features on the site could potentially be protected through the careful arrangement of construction activities. Impacts on the setting of the listed features are assessed in Section 7. The site is located within a wider air quality management area. Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.6 and Core Statutory Strategic Policy 13 seeks to prevent development that would lead to a reduction in air quality. Mitigation would be required to ensure the construction works did not lead to a reduction in air quality, particularly within the designated area. A further assessment on this consideration has been made in Section 7. As the site is within an archaeology priority area, suitable investigation and remediation works would need to be agreed with the LPA in accordance with Southwark Plan saved Policy 3.19 and Strategic Policy 12 in the Core Strategy.

Environmental appraisal Introduction
The following sections summarise specialist assessments which are provided in Appendix 9 – Environmental appraisal tables.

7.2
7.2.1

Transport
The site is suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site, subject to the construction of a temporary site access. The potential road access route to the TLRN (A200) passes through a residential area and traffic calming (speed cushions). Rail access is possible at Old London Bridge rail site on Dockley Road or at London Bridge Station. If accessing the old rail site, traffic calming would require removal along St James Road. The route to London Bridge

7.2.2

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 9

Site suitability report S74SK Station runs through the congestion zone and a high street area. The site is located adjacent to the river for river access. 7.2.3 There is reasonable potential for staff to utilise public transport to access the site. Some parking could be provided on site for the workforce, with additional parking available along Calypso Way and in the car park, with no restrictions other than for buses and HGVs. The Thames Path and National Cycle Route will require diversion around the site.

7.3
7.3.1

Archaeology
The site is potentially suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. Due to a lack of previous investigations in the area, the nature and extent of archaeological receptors cannot be confidently predicted at this stage, especially within the foreshore. Further research is required to clarify the likely importance of the press works previously present on the site, and to establish the potential for archaeological receptors, both onshore and within the foreshore, relating to the early whaling industry and general mooring of ships. Peat deposits containing archaeological material have been commonly recorded throughout London in a similar proximity to the River Thames. Given the location of the site and wider evidence for historical occupation along the river, it is a reasonable assumption to suggest waterlogged remains of archaeological value may be present.

7.3.2

7.4
7.4.1

Built heritage and townscape
In built heritage terms, the site is suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. The development has the potential to result in direct adverse impacts on one Grade II listed feature, which lies within the site boundary. There is also the potential for three other Grade II listed structures to be indirectly affected by the development, two of which are located immediately adjacent to the site boundary. Mitigation in the form of a carefully considered design during the construction phase could help reduce adverse direct and indirect impacts. However, the presence of one Grade II listed structure within the site boundary would require very careful consideration of the location of the shaft and other constructional elements on the site. In townscape terms, the site is suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. The loss of vegetation and the storage of excavated material on the banks of the River Thames would result in adverse impacts in both townscape and visual terms. However, the temporary nature of the construction activities would provide the opportunity to enhance the area of rough ground currently used as a boatyard. This results in the site being considered suitable in both townscape and visual terms if a long-term improvement of the site is implemented.

7.4.2

7.4.3

7.5
7.5.1

Water resources – hydrogeology and surface water
The site is suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. Although the shaft would be constructed within the Chalk (principal aquifer), the site does not

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 10

Site suitability report S74SK lie within total catchment zones of licensed abstractions. No long-term impact on the Chalk aquifer is expected, although temporary dewatering would be required during the construction phase. The Chalk piezometric head is likely to be approximately 40.2m above the base of construction and should be taken into account in the engineering design. 7.5.2 In terms of surface water resources, the site considered to be less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. This is because it will require encroachment into the river channel through the use of a cofferdam structure, which would cause damage to the foreshore. In addition, this would provide a direct pathway for pollution to reach the River Thames and thereby also the South Dock Lock. Therefore, specific mitigation would be required.

7.6
7.6.1

Ecology
The site is considered less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site due to the requirement for a large amount of temporary land-take from the foreshore and river (a site of metropolitan importance). Constructions in the River Thames are likely to require detailed aquatic invertebrate and fish investigation. Controls may need to be placed on piling operations close to the riverbank, and negotiation with the EA and compensatory habitat provision may also be required.

7.7
7.7.1

Flood risk
The site is considered to be less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. This is because the proposed encroachment into the river channel would be contrary to the Environment Agency’s no encroachment policy and would require works to the flood defences. The site is located within defended Flood Zone 3 (greater than a one in 200-year risk of flooding and defended to the one in 1,000-year flood level), and new defences would need to be provided to an equal standard of protection as the current defences. In addition, there is limited space onsite for SUDS and the site may not be suitable for infiltration SUDS. Further investigation would be required.

7.8
7.8.1

Air quality
The site is less suitable as a connection tunnel drive site as there is potential for fugitive emissions of dust during construction to have a perceptible impact at residential properties in close proximity to the site. These impacts could be minimised with standard dust control measures. There is also potential for HGV movements on the local road network to cause localised air quality impacts in areas of already poor air quality. However, this could be somewhat mitigated by minimising the movement of HGVs during peak hours.

7.9
7.9.1

Noise
The site is considered less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site due to the proximity of residential receptors to the north, west and south of the site. Any shielding afforded by the site perimeter barriers

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Site suitability report S74SK would be largely ineffectual due to the height of these receptors. Working 24 hours has particular potential to adversely impact on the closest receptors and should use of this site be pursued, it may be necessary to restrict some of the noisier activities to daytime only. Access of HGVs to the site is also likely to result in disturbance at residential properties on Plough Way and neighbouring streets.

7.10
7.10.1

Land quality
The site is considered less suitable as a connection tunnel drive site based on the high potential for contamination of the site to have occurred. This is specifically from wharf and metal casting (foundry) operations located on site and, to a lesser extent, infilled land and fuel-related tanks located in the vicinity of the site. This potentially poses a risk to construction workers and adjacent human receptors through direct contact and inhalation exposure pathways, as well as ground gas risks. Additionally, the potential exists for contaminants to be drawn to the deeper aquifer, and for migration to surface water receptors to occur through groundwater transport.

Socio-economic and community assessment Introduction
The socio-economic and community assessment builds on the advantages and disadvantages reported in Table 2.3 and covers the following areas: • • Socio-economic profile Socio-economic and community issues and impacts.

8.2
8.2.1

Socio-economic profile
The site is located within the Rotherhithe ward of the London Borough of Southwark. Statistics from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) 2001 Census data show the following indicators for the ward in comparison to the rest of Southwark, London and England: • • Higher percentage of economically-active, aged people who are full-time employees than in the borough or the country as a whole Slightly lower percentage of unemployed people in the ward than the borough as a whole, but a higher percentage than in the city and country The percentage of people who have achieved Level 4 or 5 educational qualifications is similar to the borough as a whole, but is significantly higher than the figure for London or the national average Age profile for the ward is roughly similar to that of the borough as a whole and England, with the only noteworthy difference being the slightly lower percentage in the 16-19 and 60-74 age groups

Site suitability report S74SK • Greater predominance of white British residents than in the borough, but otherwise the ethnic make-up is similar, with no other dominant ethnic origins.

8.2.2

In terms of deprivation, statistics for the neighbourhood around the site (Southwark 007D) indicate that the area is one of the most deprived in the country, with particular problems in terms of income, crime, barriers to housing, and the deprivation of the living environment.

8.3
8.3.1

Issues and impacts
The greatest potential impact appears likely to be the temporary loss of or requirement to relocate the boatyard, and the affect on the surrounding residential properties. Although the current level of usage of the yard is unclear, the proposed works would require the whole business area and this level of impact on the boatyard could have an effect on the operators and employees, which may impact on the local economy. The use of the site is also likely to directly affect the residents living in the properties which overlook the site and are either adjacent or opposite. There is also the potential to impact a much larger number of people living in the surrounding streets and properties surrounding South Dock Marina. The use of the site would require the Thames Path to be diverted, which could affect people’s enjoyment of the riverside in this area.

Property assessment Introduction
This report builds on the advantages and disadvantages in Table 2.3 and the assessment provides more up-to-date information. The site is the South Dock Marina boatyard.

9.2
9.2.1

Crown land and special land comments
The land is owned by the London Borough of Southwark and arguably not central to the operations of the council. While it may be technically possible for Thames Water to acquire land from a statutory body using compulsory purchase powers, an attempt to do this without the co-operation of the council will create risk. Contact should be made with the owner as soon as possible to establish if an acquisition can be agreed. The foreshore and riverbed, which will be needed for conveyors and jetties for the main site, are likely to be owned by the Crown or PLA. Crown land cannot be compulsorily purchased. Therefore, there is a risk that this land cannot be acquired. PLA land can be compulsorily purchased but a compulsory acquisition that is opposed by the PLA will create risk.

9.2.2 9.2.3

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 13

Site suitability report S74SK 9.2.4 The foreshore is not easily accessible by the public and does not appear to be used by the public. Therefore, it is unlikely to be considered open space for the purpose of S.131 of the Planning Act 2008. If the site is considered to be special land, a special parliamentary procedure would then be required unless exchange land is provided or the site is smaller than 200 square metres. Alternatively, it may be possible to avoid including land acquisition powers and instead rely on the PLA licensing regime. If temporary works powers only are required, this would not amount to land acquisition and the issue would not arise. Contact should be made with the owner as soon as possible to establish if an acquisition can be agreed.

9.2.5

9.2.6

9.3
9.3.1

Land to be acquired
The compensation assessment assumes that the worksite will be acquired temporarily, via the acquisition of new rights for the period of the works stated in the engineering section above. A right of way to the worksite is not required as the site has direct street frontage. The operational phase will require the acquisition of a freehold in the southeast part of the site, with dimensions of approximately 40m by 40m. A right of way to enable access to the above will need to be acquired.

9.3.2 9.3.3 9.3.4

9.4
9.4.1

Property valuation comments
Title information is only available in relation to the southern part of the site (to a point level with the northern end of Calypso Way). Confirmation of the ownership of the northern part of the site (as far as the boundary with the lock into South Dock) requires further investigation. However, the whole site is a boatyard, which appears to be operated by the London Borough of Southwark or its tenant/contractor, and it seems likely that the council will also own the northern part of the site. The planning history shows no recent planning applications or permissions in relation to this site. Therefore, it appears that there are no redevelopment intentions at this stage. However, if planning permission for residential development were granted, the acquisition costs could increase significantly. The land will be reinstated after the works are complete as a part of the engineering works, and therefore reinstatement costs are not included in the compensation assessment. The compensation for the acquisition of new rights is based on the diminution in value to the land caused by the acquisition.

Disturbance compensation comments
The site is used as the South Dock Marina boatyard and the occupier may therefore claim the cost of relocating or extinguishing the business. The loss of profit element of disturbance compensation is normally assessed

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 14

Site suitability report S74SK by reference to accounts, which are not available. Therefore, the estimate has been assessed using the limited information available. This cost is likely to be acceptable.

9.6
9.6.1

Discretionary purchase costs comments
There is some potential for discretionary purchase costs associated with residential properties located immediately west and south of the site.

9.7
9.7.1

Offsite statutory compensation comments
There should be limited potential for offsite statutory compensation under Section 10 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965, as there is unlikely to be any physical interference with public or private property rights. There should also be limited potential for claims under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973, as the completed works are unlikely to result in diminution in value to property.

9.7.2

9.8
9.8.1 9.8.2

Site acquisition cost assessment
The statutory acquisition costs for both options are likely to be acceptable. If planning permission for residential development is granted, acquisition costs could increase significantly but will still be acceptable.

10.1.1

Site conclusions by discipline Introduction
The conclusions presented in this section are drawn from each discipline’s assessment, and are designed to inform the workshop where a final conclusion is reached on whether the site can be taken forward as a potential preferred site, subject to its fit with possible drive strategies in the case of Greenwich connection tunnel sites.

10.2
10.2.1

Engineering
This site is considered less suitable for a large diameter long connection tunnel drive site because the site would need to be extended into the foreshore in order to create sufficient working space, and this would have potential impacts on the approach to Greenland Pier and the entrance to South Dock (Marina). Extension into the river would increase cost and safety hazard implications.

10.3
10.3.1 10.3.2

Planning
This site is considered less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. A series of planning designations are applicable to the site, and mitigation is likely to be required to reduce visual, general amenity and setting impacts on these designations. Use of the site will result in temporary loss of the boatyard use for a lengthy period of time. The reprovision of this facility within the locality

10.3.3

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 15

Site suitability report S74SK may be required, and further consideration into the potential of this requirement should be given. 10.3.4 Potential impacts on residential amenity and mitigation proposals should be considered further, particularly since there is no scope to relocate the construction works within the site to increase the separation distance between the works and adjacent dwellings. The listed features on the site could potentially be protected through the careful arrangement of construction activities on the site.

10.3.5

10.4
10.4.1 10.4.2 10.4.3

Environment
Overall, the site is considered to be less suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. The site is suitable from the perspectives of transport, archaeology, built heritage, townscape and water resources (hydrogeology). The site is less suitable from the perspectives of water resources (surface water), flood risk, ecology, air quality, noise and land quality impacts. Overall, the site is considered to be less suitable, and further investigation would be required as to whether surface water, flood risk, ecology, air quality, noise and land quality impacts could be adequately mitigated. Likely mitigation considerations would include the following: • Surface water and flood risk – measures to protect the site from flooding and to avoid potential for pollution of the River Thames and South Dock Lock. Ecology – mitigation for the temporary loss of foreshore habitat within a site of metropolitan importance for nature conservation. Air quality – measures to ensure dust is adequately mitigated for the closest receptors. Noise – standard noise barriers are unlikely to be entirely effective, and other techniques may be required to reduce construction noise to acceptable levels. Land quality – any required remediation of contamination (at this high risk site) and/or measures to ensure no mobilisation of contaminants retained in situ.

10.4.4

10.5
10.5.1 10.5.2

Socio-economic and community
This site is considered as less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. Use of the site would result in the temporary loss of the boatyard or requirement for its relocation, which has the potential to impact on the business, its employees and any other businesses in the area that rely on the use of the boatyard, along with their employees. Mitigation may involve discussions around alternative boatyard facilities in the area.

Site suitability report S74SK Boat yard, Calypso Way

Page 16

Site suitability report S74SK 10.5.3 The use of the site is also likely to have an impact on the residents living in the properties opposite the site to the north, south and west. A number of these would overlook any works and, given the engineering requirements to utilise the whole of the site, the potential to mitigate these impacts is likely to be limited. The location of the shaft in the southwest corner of the site brings it in close proximity to the residential properties. Locating the shaft at a greater distance from these properties would help improve the potential to mitigate the impacts of the proposed construction works. Beyond these immediate neighbours, there are additional residential properties to the north, west and south of the site which are also likely to be affected.

10.5.4

10.6
10.6.1 10.6.2

Property
The site is considered suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. The advantages of the site are as follows: • • The acquisition costs should be acceptable The site is undeveloped. If planning permission for residential development is granted, acquisition costs could increase, but will still be acceptable.

10.6.3

The disadvantage of the site is as follows: •

10.7
10.7.1

Next steps in the site selection process
It should be noted at this point that the above conclusions do not represent an overall recommendation on the suitability of a site. The disciplines discuss their site suitability report conclusions at optioneering workshops, along with Greenwich connection tunnel drive strategy options. Therefore, a preferred site can only be identified through a series of Greenwich connection tunnel drive option comparisons. The outcome of this two-step process (sites and then drive option comparisons) is set out in the Phase two scheme development report.

Transport Site considerations Access to road network Comments The site is located in St George’s Wharf and requires the construction of a new construction site access onto the roundabout type junction of Plough Way and Calypso Way. This would form an additional arm of the junction. The Thames Path and National Cycle Route 4 (NCR4) would require diversion around the site. Calypso Way is subject to a 30mph speed limit and is street lit. It has a carriageway width of 6.1m, which is reduced to an effective width of 4.1m due to on-street parking to the north. Visibility onto the roundabout is sufficient. Access to the A200 (TLRN strategic highway network) from Calypso Way onto Plough Way, then onto Lower Road towards the A200. The route runs through a residential area and is traffic calmed (speed cushions) along Plough Way. Distance of 2km to TLRN. See transport access plan in Appendix 5. Site is located adjacent to river for river access. The Thames Path and National Cycle Route 4 (NCR4) would require diversion around the site. Mitigation required and conclusions Road access to the site is possible for HGVs, requiring the construction of a new access. The Thames Path and NCR4 require diversion around the site. Access route to the TLRN (A200) is traffic calmed (speed cushions) and passes through a residential area.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Transport Site considerations Access to rail Comments Access to old London Bridge Station site for rail access (approximately 1km southeast of London Bridge Station) from TLRN (A200) onto St James Road and Dockley Road, passing through a 20mph zone, with traffic calming along St James Road (speed cushions, raised zebra crossing) and a raised junction onto Dockley Road. Raised crossing and junction require removal. Old station site is likely to have very limited night use, being on the main line with no space for sidings on the viaduct. Alternative rail access at London Bridge Station, accessible via the TLRN (A200) and Borough High Street, which passes under a rail bridge with no visible restrictions. The route also passes through a high street area and the congestion charge zone in addition to the constraints encountered upon accessing the TLRN (A200). London Bridge Station has the potential to be used during the night and off peak, although significant use constraints and issues with loading would exist. Distance 3.1km to rail access point at old station site and 4.8km to rail access at London Bridge Station from site. Mitigation required and conclusions Alternative rail access at London Bridge Station is possible. The route from the site passes under and over several bridges with no visible restrictions, in addition to the constraints encountered to the TLRN (A200), as well as through a high street area and the congestion zone. London Bridge Station has the potential to be used during the night and off peak, although significant use constraints and issues with loading would exist.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Transport Site considerations Parking Comments Some parking could potentially be provided within the site boundary for workforce. Informal on-street parking is available on surrounding roads and in the adjacent car park with no restrictions (other than for buses and HGVs). Mitigation required and conclusions Some parking could potentially be available for workforce on site with additional unrestricted car park and informal on-street parking nearby. Some parking would be displaced by the site. However, alternative parking is available nearby. Possibility of workforce being able to use public transport to access the site. Construction of a new site access and the creation of an additional arm to roundabout. Diversion of Thames Path and NCR4 around the site. Raised crossing on St James Road requires removal.

Public transport accessibility Traffic management

PTAL 3-4, as identified within Table 2.3. Construction of a new site access and the creation of an additional arm onto the roundabout of Plough Way/ Calypso Way. Diversion of Thames Path and NCR4 around the site. Removal of raised crossing on St James Road for access to rail.

Summary: The site is suitable for use as a long connection tunnel drive site, subject to the construction of a temporary site access. The potential road access route to the TLRN (A200) passes through a residential area and traffic calming (speed cushions). Rail access is possible at Old London Bridge rail site on Dockley Road or at London Bridge Station. If accessing the old rail site, traffic calming would require removal along St James Road. The route to London Bridge Station runs through the congestion zone and a high street area. The site is located adjacent to the river for river access. There is reasonable potential for staff to utilise public transport to access the site. Some parking could be provided on site for the workforce, with additional parking available along Calypso Way and in the car park, with no restrictions other than for buses and HGVs. The Thames Path and National Cycle Route will require diversion around the site.

Appendix 9 – Page 3

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Archaeology Site considerations Designations, including archaeological priority areas Comments The northern part of the site is within the Southwark Archaeological Priority Area (APA). The southern boundary of the site borders the Lewisham APA but is not within it. The 19th century OS maps indicate the site to be occupied by a single large building, labelled on the 1896 OS map as a manganese bronze press works. The building has since been demolished and the site is now open ground. The foreshore area of the site, where it is proposed a cofferdam would be constructed, may have been utilised as a mooring, landing or wharf during the medieval period. The Royal Dockyard of Deptford was located a few hundred metres to the south of the site. No archaeological receptors are recorded within the site. This does not preclude the possibility of unrecorded archaeological receptors of high value being within the site. The NMR contains a polygon record (UID 125021) of a full rigged sail ship, known as The Broderick, that extends across a very wide area of the Thames, including the foreshore area of the site. The actual record states the ship is located at Regents Canal Dock to the north of the site. The construction of the cofferdam may impact on well Mitigation required and conclusions Not applicable.

Summary of historical uses

A detailed desk-based assessment is required to sufficiently understand the archaeological resource and define risk to potential development.

Potential receptors of very high or high value with the potential to be directly affected

Potential receptors of medium value with the potential to be directly affected Other than the NMR polygon for a ship believed to have sunk in the general area, no archaeological receptors are recorded within the site. This does not preclude the possibility of unrecorded archaeological receptors being within the site. A post-medieval water channel (MLO65945) is located 10m outside the site’s western boundary. Construction impact of potential waterlogged deposits containing archaeological remains may cause dewatering. This potential impact should be considered, given the close proximity of the site to the River Thames. Construction impact of the Victorian period works may have disturbed medieval or earlier remains. A detailed desk-based assessment is required to sufficiently understand the archaeological resource and define risk to potential development. Mitigation required and conclusions

Other receptors with the potential to be directly affected

A detailed desk-based assessment is required to sufficiently understand the archaeological resource and define risk to potential development.

Extent of existing disturbance (if known)

A detailed desk-based assessment is required to sufficiently understand the archaeological resource and define risk to potential development. Mitigation methods could include: • review/production of existing desk-based assessments • production of deposits model • archaeological monitoring of geotechnical investigations • archaeological evaluation

Potential issues

Detailed design proposals and an outline method statement would be required to enable initial assessment of development impacts, and to inform mitigation proposals. With the currently available information, it is not possible to highlight specific potential issues. In consultation, English Heritage identified the

potential for archaeological • archaeological watching remains from the early brief whaling industry which may be • archaeological excavation. difficult to mitigate. Disturbance of potential waterlogged remains buried within the foreshore is possible, with the construction of the cofferdam. A geophysical radar survey may be required as part of a desk-based assessment to establish the presence of any below-ground remains within the foreshore. Summary: The site is potentially suitable for use as a long connection tunnel drive site. Due to a lack of previous investigations in the area, the nature and extent of archaeological receptors cannot be confidently predicted at this stage, especially within the foreshore. Further research is required to clarify the likely importance of the press works previously present on the site, and to establish the potential for archaeological receptors, both onshore and within the foreshore, relating to the early whaling industry and general mooring of ships. Peat deposits containing archaeological material have been commonly recorded throughout London in a similar proximity to the River Thames. Given the location of the site and wider evidence for historical occupation along the river, it is a reasonable assumption to suggest waterlogged remains of archaeological value may be present.

In contrast, the borough of Lewisham does maintain a local list but there were no locally listed buildings at the time of this assessment. The borough of Tower Hamlets does maintain a local list but there are no locally listed buildings within the borough and within 250m of S74SK. Mitigation required and conclusions In the case of listed buildings and protected views, adequate screening for the development may be required, as discussed below. A detailed desk-based assessment in conjunction with archaeology work would be required to further inform the likely impact of the development, and to determine more detailed mitigation proposals.

Locally listed parks and gardens There are no locally listed parks and gardens within 250m of S74SK. Protected views S74SK is located 250m away from the ‘Greenwich Park’ Protected View (as designated in the London Views Management Framework). Potential receptors of medium to very high importance with the potential to be directly affected There is the potential for one Grade II listed building to be directly affected by the development. The Grade II listed parish boundary stone is located within the site boundary of S74SK and may therefore experience a direct impact during the construction phase of the development. The construction layout plan shows that a shaft and segment storage area will be located on and around the Grade II Parish Boundary Stone mentioned above. If development leads to the removal of the stone, consultation with relevant stakeholders (eg, LB Lewisham, English Heritage) and listed building consent is likely to be required.

Other receptors of Not applicable. lesser importance with the potential to be directly affected Potential receptors of medium to very high importance with the potential to be indirectly affected There is the potential for six Grade II listed buildings and one protected view (Greenwich Park – London Views Management Framework) to be indirectly affected by the development.

Of the six Grade II listed buildings which have the potential to be indirectly affected by the development, only three (Parish boundary stone, wall and pier, St George’s Wharf, Swing footbridge over Steelyard Cut, Surrey Docks and Tide gauge house on South Quay of Greenland Lock, Surrey Docks) are likely to share a visual relationship with the site. As the development could impact on the setting of these listed structures during the construction phase, mitigation in the form of a high-quality design and/or screening would be required. This may especially be required in the case of the Parish boundary stone, wall and pier, and St George’s Wharf, which is located adjacent (10m) to S74SK. In the case of the other three Grade II listed structures, they do not share a visual relationship with S74SK because of screening provided by existing buildings around

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Built heritage and townscape Site considerations Comments Mitigation required and conclusions the Surrey Docks. These three listed structures would therefore not experience any impact as a result of the development, and no mitigation would be required. The ‘Greenwich Park’ Protected View lies 250m from S74SK and is not intercepted by the site. Development at S74SK would therefore not impact on this vista or the area immediately around it and therefore no mitigation would be required. Not applicable.

Other receptors of lesser importance with the potential to be indirectly affected Sensitive landscape character areas likely to be affected, including trees and TPOs

Not applicable.

The open area of rough hardstanding is used as a boatyard and is partially contained by semi-mature to mature trees along three boundaries. Internally, the area is rough ground with a variety of boats, containers and parked cars. To the northwest is South Dock Marina. Low- to medium-rise residential properties are located to the north, west and south. The River Thames is to the east. During construction activities, loss of mature vegetation, storage of excavated material on the banks of the river, the presence and operation of machinery, and buildings would result in temporary, adverse direct impacts on the character of the river and its frontage, and temporary,

Retention of trees where possible and protection in accordance with BS 5837. Introduction of landscape scheme to include appropriate surface treatments and planting to replace lost vegetation and relate to adjacent river frontage. Removal of mature vegetation and the presence and operation of machinery, materials stores and buildings on site could adversely impact the character of the site and river frontage. However, this produces an opportunity to develop this place into a green open space that would enhance the character of the river frontage. The adverse impacts are temporary and provide an opportunity to enhance this

Mitigation required and conclusions area of rough hardstanding used as a boatyard, resulting in the site being considered suitable. During construction, the use of hoardings and appropriate lighting would minimise visual impact. Loss of vegetation would make the construction activities visible and reduce the current visual amenity. The loss of visual amenity is temporary and provides the opportunity to enhance the boatyard through appropriate design, resulting in the site being considered suitable.

Potential views likely to be affected

The southwest corner of the site is in the ‘Strategic View Wider Consultation Zone’. Open views of boundary vegetation from the River Thames and properties along the north bank of the river. Open and interrupted views of the boatyard from surrounding properties and South Dock Marina. Partially interrupted views from Canary Wharf. During construction, loss of vegetation would open up views of the construction activities from both the river and from properties around the site. There will be no permanent above-ground structures at S74SK associated with the connection tunnel drive site.

Particular considerations on sites where new permanent structures are required Potential issues

Not applicable.

The construction phase of the development could result in a direct impact on one Grade II structure and an indirect impact on three Grade II listed structures. There is also the potential for an impact on the local townscape and the character of the River Thames, its frontage and local views. However, there is the potential to mitigate any adverse impacts through a carefully designed scheme that would not make any

The construction phase design would need to be of a sufficient quality and may need to incorporate some screening in order that potential direct and indirect impacts of the development on numerous listed structures are minimised. The location of the shaft and other constructional aspects of the site would need to be carefully considered so as not to adversely impact on either the fabric of listed structures or on their setting.

Appendix 9 – Page 11

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Built heritage and townscape Site considerations Comments permanent impacts on the heritage assets. Mitigation required and conclusions In particular, this applies to the Grade II Parish Boundary Stone that lies within the site area.

Summary: In built heritage terms, the site is suitable as a long connection tunnel drive site. The development has the potential to result in direct adverse impacts on one Grade II listed feature which lies within the site boundary. There is also the potential for three other Grade II listed structures to be indirectly affected by the development, two of which are located immediately adjacent to the site boundary. Mitigation in the form of a carefully considered design during the construction phase could help reduce adverse direct and indirect impacts. However, the presence of one Grade II listed structure within the site boundary would require very careful consideration of the location of the shaft and other constructional elements on the site. In townscape terms, the site is suitable as a connection tunnel drive site. The loss of vegetation and the storage of excavated material on the banks of the River Thames would result in adverse impacts in both townscape and visual terms. However, the temporary nature of the construction activities would provide the opportunity to enhance the area of rough ground currently used as a boatyard. This results in the site being considered suitable in both townscape and visual terms if a long-term improvement of the site is implemented.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Water resources – hydrogeology and surface water Site considerations Comments 3. 52,000m3 Unlicensed groundwater abstractions and details • No abstraction borehole within 1km radius. Borehole locations and depths There are six historical records of water wells within a 1km radius. Depth range: 6.09 – 201.78m The site encroaches into the river channel through the use of a cofferdam structure, which would cause damage to the foreshore. In addition, this would provide a direct pathway for pollution to reach the River Thames and thereby also the South Dock Lock. Therefore, specific mitigation would be required. An impact on groundwater at depth is likely since the shaft is to be constructed in Chalk (principal aquifer), which would need to be dewatered. At shallow depth, the shaft is located in superficial deposits, which are classified as a secondary aquifer. If the shallow aquifer is separated by low permeability Lambeth Group, there would be limited impact on the shallow aquifer if water is excluded from the excavation by sheetpiling. If the shallow aquifer is in hydraulic continuity with Chalk (principal aquifer), it will need to be dewatered. Not applicable Mitigation required and conclusions

Work needs to be undertaken in consideration of Pollution Prevention Guidelines – PPG1, PPG5 and PPS23.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Water resources – hydrogeology and surface water Site considerations Likely types of mitigation measures that would be required Potential issues Comments Mitigation unlikely to be required as construction of the shaft would not take place within the total catchment zone of licensed abstractions. The shaft is to be excavated in Chalk below the piezometric head, therefore dewatering would be required during construction. Possible saline intrusion caused by dewatering if shallow aquifer is in hydraulic continuity with chalk(principal aquifer). Limited impact on flow in shallow aquifer if shallow aquifer is separated by low permeability Lambeth Group. Mitigation required and conclusions Not applicable

Piezometric head in Chalk to be considered as part of geotechnical design. The issue of the appropriate disposal of discharges from dewatering to be considered. Impact on and mitigation for shallow aquifer would depend on construction design.

Summary: The site is suitable as a long connection tunnel drive site. Although the shaft would be constructed within the Chalk (principal aquifer), the site does not lie within total catchment zones of licensed abstractions. No long-term impact on the Chalk aquifer is expected, although temporary dewatering would be required during the construction phase. The Chalk piezometric head is likely to be approximately 40.2m above the base of construction and should be taken into account in the engineering design. In terms of surface water resources, the site is considered to be less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site. This is because it will require encroachment into the river channel through the use of a cofferdam structure, which would cause damage to the foreshore. In addition, this would provide a direct pathway for pollution to reach the River Thames and thereby also the South Dock Lock. Therefore, specific mitigation would be required.

River Thames and Tidal Tributaries SMI lies adjacent to the development site. Greenland Dock BGII site lies adjacent. Mitigation required and conclusions No likely impacts.

Non-statutory designated wildlife sites

The temporary structure in the river would impact the SMI (including reducing waterfowl habitat) and may require compensatory habitat provision and mitigation to ensure that fish passage is not disrupted. Post works restoration may also be required. Impacts on this designation are unlikely. The temporary structure in the river would impact this BAP habitat and may require compensatory habitat provision and mitigation to ensure that fish passage is not disrupted. Post works restoration may also be required. Piling operations for the cofferdams to enable the construction of the ‘in river’ structure would cause noise and vibration that may result in direct fish mortality and disruption of fish migration. The physical blockage of the intertidal foreshore will also potentially disrupt fish movements and habitat loss on such a large scale that it may need to be compensated. Structures in the river must be regarded cumulatively, rather than in isolation. The combined presence of multiple ‘in river’ structures may cause significant changes to river flows in addition to general encroachment.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Ecology (terrestrial and aquatic) Site considerations Comments Mitigation required and conclusions

Summary: The site is considered less suitable for use as a connection tunnel drive site due to the requirement for a large amount of temporary land-take from the foreshore and river (a site of metropolitan importance). Constructions in the River Thames are likely to require detailed aquatic invertebrate and fish investigation. Controls may need to be placed on piling operations close to the riverbank, and negotiation with the EA and compensatory habitat provision may also be required.

There is a residual risk of a breach, for which mitigation would need to be considered as part of the FRA. The proposed encroachment into the river channel would be contrary to the Environment Agency’s no encroachment policy and would require works to the flood defences. Sewage transmission infrastructure is considered to be water compatible according to Table D.2 of PPS25. There is limited space for SUDS, hence it would be difficult to attenuate runoff from the site to PPS25 requirements for the duration of construction. In addition, the site is unlikely to be suitable for infiltration SUDS, and further investigation would be required. No other issues. Mitigation required and conclusions An FRA would be required to assess the residual risk of flooding to the site.

Assessment of conditions for SUDS

Not applicable.

Potential issues

No other issues.

Summary: The site is considered to be less suitable for use as a long connection tunnel drive site. This is because the proposed encroachment into the river channel would be contrary to the Environment Agency’s no encroachment policy and would require works to the flood defences. The site is located within the defended Flood Zone 3 (greater than a one in 200-year risk of flooding and defended to the one in 1,000-year flood level) and new defences would need to be provided to an equal standard of protection as the current defences. In addition, there is limited space on site for SUDS and the site may not be suitable for infiltration SUDS. Further investigation would be required.

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Air quality Site considerations AQMA Comments The air quality objectives for NO 2 are exceeded on major roads in the vicinity of the site. There are residential properties along Lower Road (A200), Plough Way (B206) and the access route to the site. There are residential properties within 30m of the site on Calypso Way, and residential properties within 50m on Enterprise Way and Capstan Road. The main traffic issue in this area is exhaust emissions from vehicles along the A200 and A2208 corridors. See above. Mitigation required and conclusions There is a need for more site specific data. There are relevant air quality sensitive receptors present along the route the construction traffic is likely to take and close to the proposed construction works.

Sensitive receptors

Existing traffic issues

Additional vehicle emissions have a moderate potential to interfere with local air quality action plan policies. See above.

Existing sources of significant air pollutants Notable gaps in existing air quality monitoring

There is no data at the likely access to the A200 and the nearest existing data indicates existing AQLV exceeded. The risk from additional exhaust emissions from construction HGVs is undefined at present. The risk from dust impacts at residential properties is moderate.

Collect a minimum of six months’ diffusion tube data at site access to the A200 or other point of access to major road network. Minimise HGV movements on the local road network during the peak hour. Standard dust control measures would minimise the effect of fugitive dust on nearby sensitive receptors.

Potential issues

Summary: The site is less suitable as a long connection tunnel drive site as there is potential for fugitive emissions of dust during construction to have a perceptible impact at residential properties in close proximity to the site. These impacts could be minimised with standard dust control measures. There is also potential for HGV movements on the local road network to cause localised air quality impacts in areas of already poor air quality. However, this could be somewhat mitigated by minimising the movement of HGVs during peak hours.

Noise levels from the Defra noise maps provide an indication of prevailing noise levels only, and would not be employed in any detailed assessments for chosen sites. There are sensitive receptors located to Not applicable. the north, west and south of the proposed site. To the north is Princes Court, a four-storey residential development. This is located approximately 45 metres from the temporary working area and 120m from the shaft location. To the west are four-storey residential properties on Plough Way and Calypso Way. These are located approximately 10m from the temporary working area and 18m from the shaft location. To the south is a three-storey residential development at St George’s Square. These are 40m from the temporary working area and 45m from the shaft location. South Dock Marina is located adjacent to the northwest corner of the site. Local road traffic and traffic on the A200 to the west is likely to dominate the noise climate in the area.

Appendix 9 – Page 21

Site suitability report S74SK – Appendix 9 Noise Site considerations Potential issues Comments Construction: The construction period is estimated at four to five years and working hours would be 24 hours per day, Monday to Sunday. This has the potential to result in adverse noise impacts on the sensitive receptors surrounding the site. HGV movements have the potential to result in adverse noise impacts at properties on Plough Way and surrounding streets. Proposed 3m site boundary fencing would provide useful noise mitigation to some plant and construction activities. Careful positioning of the noisiest plant, ie, central and eastern areas of the site, would assist in reducing the potential noise impact. Vibration resulting from general construction works is not anticipated to result in an adverse impact. The nearest receptors to the proposed shaft location are at a distance of approximately 18 metres. Vibration levels therefore may result in annoyance during shaft sinking. Vibration from tunnelling should be considered on a case-by-case basis at particular sensitive locations. Mitigation required and conclusions Adherence to the good site practices provided in BS5228. Considered positioning of noisy equipment and construction activities to maximise distance between source and receptor positions. Provision of site boundary noise fences. Restriction of some construction activities to daytime working.

Summary: The site is considered less suitable for use as a long connection tunnel drive site due to the proximity of residential receptors to the north, west and south of the site. Any shielding afforded by the site perimeter barriers would be largely ineffectual due to the height of these receptors. Working 24 hours has particular potential to adversely impact on the closest receptors and should use of this site be pursued, it may be necessary to restrict some of the noisier activities to daytime only. Access of HGVs to the site is also likely to result in disturbance at residential properties on Plough Way and neighbouring streets.

Contamination category Category 3 – assessed as high risk Summary: The site is considered less suitable as a long connection tunnel drive site based on the high potential for contamination of the site to have occurred. This is specifically from wharf and metal casting (foundry) operations located on site and, to a lesser extent, infilled land and fuel-related tanks located in the vicinity of the site. This potentially poses a risk to construction workers and adjacent human receptors through direct contact and inhalation exposure pathways, as well as ground gas risks. Additionally, the potential exists for contaminants to be drawn to the deeper aquifer, and for migration to surface water receptors to occur through groundwater transport. Notes: 1.
