Bond Street Station
Client: Costain Laing O’Rourke Joint Venture
The Crossrail Act 2008 gave London Underground permission to carry out works to improve Bond Street Station. The station has undergone a major redevelopment to increase capacity, improve accessibility and create an interchange with Crossrail. More than 160,000 passengers use the station daily. When Crossrail opens passenger numbers are expected to increase to 225,000.
The scheme provided a new station entrance on Marylebone Lane leading to a new ticket hall, new escalators serving the Jubilee line, lifts providing step-free access from street to all platforms and new interchange links between the Jubilee and Central lines and new Crossrail station.
On behalf of the Costain Laing O’Rourke JV, CJ Associates were responsible for discharging planning and heritage conditions and ensuring compliance with commitments contained in Undertakings and Assurances made to affected parties under the Act.
Consents, Town Planning, Land and Property
- Production of the Consents Management Strategy and Plan.
- Production of a Commitments Compliance Plan including compliance with Crossrail documentation and Environmental Minimum Requirements.
- Identification of outstanding planning and heritage consents and incorporation into a Consents Tracker.
- Preparation and submission of planning and consent applications to consent granting bodies, in particular Westminster City Council and English Heritage, and coordinating the approval process.
- Management of the discharge of obligations contained within Undertakings and Assurances arising from the Crossrail Act.
CJ Associates experience in the process of obtaining consents for Grade I and II listed buildings and our established working relationships with English Heritage and Westminster City Council were very important to the success of the project and mitigated planning and consent risk.
