COMMENT ON PROVEWELL WAREHOUSES
2 Overbury Yard is currently a dead end spot in the warehouse district. Hidden away and poorly lit, the yard attracts anti-social behaviour and is often used for flytipping and abandoning cars.
The yard is overlooked by Stone House to the north and Unit 2 to the south. Currently it is only accessed from Overbury Road.
In recent discussions with tenants there was a lot of support to ensure all units have access to outdoor space, which Unit 2 currently does not. There have also been several supportive comments about creating additional space to utilise outdoor areas. Some tenants also feel uncomfortable in parts of the area due to pockets of anti-social behaviour.
The planning team are keen to read your comments about proposed idea. Are the current features included needed or are there alternative elements that should be added?
Through the creation of more studio space, a natural courtyard area is created at 2 Overbury Yard. The following features are proposed:
The installation of benches, planters and trees to create a mix of seating areas for people to congregate.
A new surface area will be installed. To add vibrancy the current design proposal is to use a ground work design commissioned by local warehouse tenant Studio DoDo.
To make the space usable day and night, lighting will be installed. Illuminating the Yard will also make it less attractive to anti-social behaviour.
