OPDC Industrial Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation

Entrant's Summary: OPDC’s Industrial SPD provides a groundbreaking approach to delivering best practice intensified industrial developments from a placemaking, design and sustainability perspective. The SPD specifically tackles issues with large floorplate and multi-storey industrial premises which are likely to become more commonplace. It leads the way by setting guidance on the design of industrial buildings; maintaining safety and security whilst also improving the public realm; supporting the health and wellbeing of industrial workers; optimising the delivery of green infrastructure and sustainable drainage appropriate to an industrial context; and securing environmental benefits, including the delivery of UK’s first data centre driven heat network.
