Lockwood Way Industrial Estate, Blackhorse Lane

Part of the Blackhorse Area Strategic Industrial Land as defined by the London Plan and the Local Plan.

Background

Lockwood Way Industrial Estate is accessed from Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow. It is part of the Blackhorse Lane Area Strategic Industrial Land as defined by the London Plan and the Local Plan. It is situated within the Blackhorse Lane Creative Enterprise Zone.

The Improvements

As part of the programme to improve workspaces in the Blackhorse Lane area, physical improvements have been completed at the Lockwood Way Industrial Estate.

Through engagement with the individual businesses on site, we have carried out a number of physical interventions at the Estate to make it a more attractive place to work and visit.

The improvement works include:

  • the installation of new business frontages
  • signage
  • artwork
  • footpath widening
  • fencing
  • landscaping
  • SUDs
  • lighting
  • events furniture
  • a new gate to Lockwood path to make the Wetlands more accessible

The programme of works supports the Blackhorse Lane Creative Enterprise Zone and the Craft Brewery Training and Jobs Academy programme. Our architects have recently submitted the project as a candidate for a ‘New London Architecture’ award.

The improvements will make the estate a more attractive destination for new businesses who wish to locate there. The inward investment will support local businesses to grow and diversify their offer.
