Thameside House Further Engagement: Block B / Site C consultation questionnaire

Spelthorne Borough Council has a target from the government to build 618 homes per year for the next 15 years. The Council’s housing register has also risen from 1,942 households to approximately 3,600 in the last 2 years, representing a serious housing crisis that the Council must address. It is important for the Council to deliver more high-quality housing to let at affordable rents to local people.

Following initial consultation in June / July 2022, we are further consulting on the application which has been submitted for the development of Thameside House, in South Street, Staines under Ref: 20/00344/FUL.

Initial consultation centred on changes to Site A, in response to public comments on the planning application, to reduce the height of the proposed taller building at the corner of South Street and Thames Street.  The consultation also considered new proposed employment floorspace on site A which was being created to retain a key local employer and contribute to the long-term sustainability of the town centre.

As part of the consultation in June / July, the exhibition Boards noted that there were to be no changes to Block B or Site C, however, minor changes to both are now required.

  • In respect of Block B, these changes are largely as a consequence of new sustainability and safety requirements (under Part L of the Building Regulations) which require additional insulation and the provision of two staircases.
  • In respect of Site C the changes to the planning boundary line, so the site aligns with the planning boundary line for the Oast House planning application which is due to be submitted later this year.
