Firstplan acted for Seacon in securing planning permission for a comprehensive scheme of works to upgrade and secure the long term continued operation of Tower Wharf, an important transhipment facility in the Thames Estuary. The proposals included a replacement river jetty access within the river, providing dedicated storage areas and development of new high quality office space.
Firstplan’s role included undertaking an initial site appraisal advising on planning strategy and requirements in addition to managing the application process through both pre-application and full planning application stages through to the grant of planning permission. The application process included extensive negotiations with the Port of London Authority, Environment Agency and Gravesham Borough Council.
