A proposal to build one thousand new homes on Hornsey’s old gas works has been given the go ahead.
The London Borough of Haringey has granted outline planning consent to the National Grid Property and London Development Agency’s Clarendon Square scheme. This will create up to 1080 new homes with a mixture of other uses surrounding a public square on the Haringey Heartlands site.
Adrian Cross Commercial Property Manager at National Grid said:
“Haringey Council’s decision to resolve to grant planning represents an important milestone in the regeneration of this strategically important site.”
Stuart Blower, partner at Make, the architects who have designed the site, said:
“We are delighted that London Borough of Haringey has granted approval for our masterplan on this important site. Extensive stakeholder consultation has been undertaken and we are thrilled to be a step closer to realising the vision of a residential-led scheme with quality open space, including a major new public square.”
The Community Engagement programme was led by Cratus who helped ensure that this scheme had strong stakeholder influence in the design and development of this important site.
Nick Kilby, Cratus Director, said:
“This has been a long planning process that has enabled Cratus to interact directly with the local community to help them shape the proposals the Council have approved.”
Clarendon Square will create a vibrant, sustainable and attractive new urban quarter through a residential-led, mixed use development around a major new public square and a series of well-connected streets and spaces. It will have high standards of design and will promote sustainable lifestyles through low levels of car parking, improvements to bus services and improved pedestrian and cycle links to public transport and adjoining areas.
