What: Demolish an existing industrial unit to erect a three-storey replacement, complete with parking and associated works.
Where: Unit H4, Chadwell Heath Industrial Park Kemp Road, Dagenham, RM8 1SL
When: Application approved subject to legal agreement - January 7
Further information: Once the home of Sudden Impact UK Limited, the proposal aims to create three separate industrial units across an increased floorspace.
What: Consent to change the existing use of a 6 bedroom dwellinghouse into a house of multiple occupation (HMO).
Where: 116 Oxlow Lane, Dagenham, RM10 7ST
When: Application refused - January 12
Further information: Three reasons were given for the refusal, according to a decision letter issued by the council.
Firstly, the conversion would result in the "loss of a generous sized six bedroom family dwelling house to the detriment of the stock of larger homes in the borough".
There were also concerns about "additional levels of noise and disturbance at the property", and about how the car parking spaces would be allocated.
