Vision Presentation for Martins Yard, Wednesday 14 April 2021
Elemento Group is pleased to be bringing forward the residential-led, mixed-use redevelopment of Martins Yard that responds sensitively to the Telegraph Hill Conservation Area. The intention is to regenerate this brownfield, urban site with new homes, mixed uses on the ground floor, high quality landscaped spaces and improved pedestrian and cycle links.
Elemento Group is committed to engaging with local stakeholders and the wider community to help shape the proposals. During Spring, architects and masterplanners JTP will be holding consultation activities to gather ideas on possible uses for the Martins Yard site and its relationship with the surrounding neighbourhood and to develop proposals prior to a planning submission in late May.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we may not be able to hold face to face meetings and exhibitions but we will ensure easily accessible communication with the community via this webpage, physical newsletters and a Freephone number 0800 012 6730.
The Martins Yard site is approximately 0.36 hectares in area and comprises part of the Endwell Road Local Employment Location. The site also sits within the boundary of the Telegraph Hill Conservation Area.
The site is currently occupied by Skyline Roofing Centres Ltd and is populated with four shed/warehouse buildings set within an open storage yard. The floor space of these buildings total 656 m2 and approximately 8 people are employed on site.
More background on the site can be downloaded here.
Brockley has transitioned from a woodland clearing to a small agricultural community to an industrial, highly connected place during the 19th and early twentieth century. Today it is now primarily a sought-after residential area with a range of amenities and good rail connections.
This growth has been led first by the Croydon Canal and then the railways which replaced it and currently surround the site.
The Martins Yard site has remained as a storage yard since its formation around the 1900’s. The primary access to the site was originally from Endwell Road to the east where Martins Yard formed a much larger complex. The access on to Drakefell Road was secondary.
Dating back to the 1950s it is evident that the site was used as a dairy storage and distribution depot. The site was owned by Jason Martin, of Martin’s Dairy, however the area today has now been divided into different ownerships and uses.
The neighbouring development, Dragonfly Place, received planning approval in 2012. It is a mixed use development of 4 storeys with commercial units at ground and first floor and self-contained homes on the upper floors.
