Milkwood Road/ Dylan Road
NEW SELF-STORAGE FACILITY TO HELP
SMALL BUSINESSES IN HERNE HILL
Artist’s impression of the planned self-storage
facility on Rush Green Road.
Shurgard, the largest self-storage company in Europe, is pleased to announce that it is proposing new
investment in Herne Hill.
The site is currently used as the Redwing Coach
Depot on Milkwood Road/Dylan Road, Herne
Hill. It lies within the Milkwood Road Estates
Key Industrial and Business Area (KIBA).
The new Shurgard store
The new Shurgard store will comprise a three
storey building with basement.
The store will be of a high quality modern contemporary design incorporating high quality
materials. The third storey will be set back from
the building line of the lower floors to ensure
our neighbours’ daylight and rights of light are
not impacted by the development.
Pedestrian and vehicular access will be from
Supporting local businesses
Many local employment sites and small lock up garages have now
been developed for other uses such as residential accommodation,
leaving a shortage of small commercial space in the area to help new
and small businesses to start up and thrive.
While a new Shurgard store will directly create three or four new full
-time equivalent jobs in store, there are significant indirect benefits
to the local economy and businesses.
Based on a typical Shurgard store, approximately 15% to 20% of the
units will be rented to business users large and small, local and
national. The units are usually of particular interest to small, start-up and fledgling local businesses such
as eBay traders, tradespeople, local shops, sales reps and market stall holders as they provide flexible
and cost effective storage space.
Typically a storage contract is for four weeks: this therefore provides flexibility to our customers and ensures that a customer can easily come and go, a unit can be upsized and downsized as their business requires, thus helping to manage costs and provide a platform for new businesses to flourish.
In addition, many established businesses also use storage as a flexible and affordable way to expand,
providing opportunity for additional jobs to be created within the catchment of the store.
The Herne Hill store will have approximately 950 units, this represents between 140 and 190 local jobs
supported or created within the store’s catchment area. The proposal therefore offers a significant intensification of the employment currently provided on the site which we estimate to be around 30 jobs.
Storage provides a solution to many of today’s daily needs and lifestyle events.
New apartments and houses are providing less storage space and the cost differential between a one and
two bedroom apartment can be significant. Storage can provide that spare room, loft or garage space
that is not always available in the new-build modern compact flats and housing.
Storage can also provide that assistance required during major life events when additional space is needed. Some examples are: a couple coming
together in a new home and consolidating
their belongings, the birth of a child and
the creation of a nursery in the house,
moving house, the passing of a loved one,
and the storage of seasonal items such as
skis, bikes, camping equipment etc.
Storage is becoming a more essential part
of everyday living in the modern world.
As with our business customers, short-term
flexible contracts provide an easy come/
easy go solution for all short and long term
storage requirements and budgets.
The site is currently used as a depot for coaches and has approximately 10 to 15 coaches stationed on the site together with maintenance and repair facilities and administration staff. This use can create significant traffic movements at antisocial hours of the day with
early morning departures and evening returns of large vehicles and
staff, and the noise that can be generated by such vehicles.
A new Shurgard store is a quiet use and generates approximately
three to four vehicle movements per hour during our store opening
hours of 09:00 to 18:00 on weekdays, 10:00 to 16:00 Saturdays and
10:00 to 15:00 on Sundays. Typically our customers visit the store in
small vans and cars – large articulated vehicles are not allowed to deliver to stores that do not have the
capacity to accept such vehicles – Herne Hill will be such a store.
While we do allow out of hours access to select customers between the hours of 06:00 and 23:00, this is
carefully managed by our security systems, store staff and the facilities provided, such as rubber wheeled
trolleys and internal lifts, to ensure any noise is kept to an absolute minimum.
