Camden Council has approved plans for 164 new homes at 156 West End Lane, reports developer A2 Dominion.
50 per cent of the residential floor space is allocated for affordable housing.
The development also includes modern and flexible subsidised workspace for local small businesses and start-ups, helping to strengthen West Hampstead as a vibrant town centre location bringing more shops, investment and local jobs to the area.
Danny Lynch, Group Land Director for A2Dominion, said:
“We are delighted to have been granted planning consent for this important project in West Hampstead, an area identified with capacity to accommodate new commercial and housing development.
“This scheme is all about bringing good quality, well-designed new homes to this attractive and sought-after location.
“We are proud to be including such a high proportion of affordable and family-sized properties within this scheme, and have worked collaboratively with the Council to ensure that this housing will meet the needs of the area and borough.
“Throughout the process of developing our plans, we have sought to maximise the benefits this site can offer in terms of meeting housing need, whilst listening and responding to feedback from local stakeholders.”
Arita Morris, Director at Child Graddon Lewis, comments:
“156 West End Lane will be highly sustainable and, together with an enhanced public route, it will bring life and vitality to what was previously an under-utilised brownfield site.
“The architecture has been carefully detailed to provide interest and a distinct character, forming a backdrop for the trees and greenery that will run through the entire development.
“We expect this development to prove that truly mixed use, mixed tenure – along with genuinely affordable housing – schemes are possible in the city. We are delighted that it has gained support from the planning committee.”
