Application Reference HGY/2017/3207
Address: Unit 1, Cranford Way, N8 9DG (off Tottenham Lane)
Extracts from 'Planning, Design & Access' document:
"Installation of 10no. commercial kitchen units and 3no. ancillary units to form a commercial kitchen facility (use class B1c) for a temporary period of five years."
"Deliveroo intend to use the site to accommodate ten mobile kitchen units which would operate as commercial kitchens used by restaurant operators. Three further units will be utilised for W/C, General Walfare and Dispatch facilities. The proposed units will provide a total floor area of 331 sqm."
"In terms of operation, food would be cooked within the kitchen units to order and Deliveroo riders would collect the items to deliver to the customer."
"Deliveroo will operate the kitchens between 17:30 to 23:00 (Monday to Thursday) and 12.00 to 23.00 (Friday to Sunday)."
"Deliveroo riders principally use a mix of pedal cycles and motorised scooters. The catchment area for deliveries from the application site is typically 2.5km, and the maximum riding time for the delivery riders to take the food order from the site to the customer is 15 minutes. When not in use during operational hours, bikes scooters will be taken away from the unit by the riders. There will be no storage of bikes overnight."
"In terms of movements, the application site will require regular access by Deliveroo riders on bikes and scooters in addition to service vehicles during the operational hours of 17.30pm and 23.00pm (Monday to Thursday) and 12.00am to 23.00pm (Friday to Sunday)."
It'll be moped central!!!!! Enjoy!
How did we ever manage before we could expect hot 'food' at our door in 15 minutes?
Could this be a side-effect of tiny flats/ HMOs, or is it because no-one can thaw out a microwave readymeal any more?
Ha ha ha.
It is more confirmation that people are cooking less and less to feed themselves on a daily basis but not only because of the size of homes. We live more and more in a convenience & instant gratification society.
This has implications on the amount of rubbish we as humans produce and left over food wasted. But also, it will allow fewer and fewer independent food businesses to survive. Everything will become standardised....Deliveroo will deliver your Busaba food almost immediately and you don't have to be in the West End for this. Short, previously unnecessary vehicle movements explode....
Just how does this tie in with the need to consume less resources on our Big Blue Planet. I am very happy I was born in the last years of the baby boom!
Also, I see that it seems to be a commercial site, but I pity anyone who has to live near the area of 'movements' they describe.
This really interesting Guardian article has some very helpful background to what's going on and why Deliveroo would put 10 kitchens on an industrial estate.
Good spot - thank you.
Looks like it's open, trading and operating as a Deliveroo Edition kitchen already... along with Crust Bros, Busaba and MotherCluckers...
Its definitely up and running. I wondered what it was when I was on my way to Total Boxer on sat
With that massively open right hand turn onto Wightman Rd that's a fabulous position to deliver food from. It will be a magnet for moped thieving gangs too who will then head straight to Regent Street.
Ban mopeds, make them use electric bicycles.
Even a normal bike gets you up Muswell Hill (I know from experience). I think you're asking if you could do it without pedalling. The answer is yes, a friend in Stockholm does 50 mph on his as it's been "chipped". The speed limit for an electric bicycle is the same as for a moped though and 20 mph is VERY achievable, even 30.
