NTT Communications London Data Centres Get Full Building Approval
There is a drift further east from Docklands when it comes to new data centre building in London, which is what one local council is now taking advantage of.
The Mayor of London has given the green light to two new NTT Communications data centres in Dagenham, East London. There are plans to transform the area where the facilities are being built into a digital and media hub.
The data centres will be located near a new film studio. They will total around 53,000 square metres and are expected to provide a combined 1.75MW of power. Planning documents suggest the campus could be ready by the end of 2019 and employ over 100 people.
Barking and Dagenham council’s deputy leader Dominic Twomey welcomed the approval. Twomey said: “I am pleased the Mayor of London’s office has endorsed our decision and given these plans the go-ahead.
“This investment in the borough reinforces that Barking and Dagenham is truly at the heart of London’s eastward growth and is testament to the council’s ability to attract investors.”
He said: “For local people, this news means more jobs across a broad spectrum of industries, not just digital, and more money into the local economy.”
In July this year, Barking and Dagenham Council gave planning consent to NTT to build the data centres. The decision was then referred to Greater London Authority, and last week the Deputy Mayor of London, Jules Pipe, said he was content to allow Barking and Dagenham Council to make the final decision itself.
The council has now given formal notice to grant permission. Earlier this month, NTT announced plans to double the size of its data centre capacity in Osaka, Japan, with two new facilities coming online by the end of 2019.
