Description of Fulham Gasworks

Fulham Gasworks is a residential-led mixed use development in Fulham, London SW6.

New Homes
The development will create up to 1843 one, two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Affordable Homes
646 new affordable homes include:
- 259 new homes available at affordable rent for residents on the council’s housing waiting list.
- 193 new homes set at the London Living Rent to allow residents to save up for a deposit on their first home.
- 194 new homes earmarked for local first-time buyers on a shared ownership basis.

New business space, retails units, restaurants and a cafe will be created.

The development, which is just off King’s Road, will include a new public park and square which will embrace the site’s gasworks heritage. The world’s oldest surviving gasholder, which was built on the site in 1829, will be the centrepiece of the new green space once the Grade II*-listed structure is renovated.

A Grade II-listed WW1 war memorial and a WW2 war memorial on the site will be retained and celebrated in the new Sands End Square.

Work will start in 2019.

History

As well as the historic gasholder, other Grade II-listed landmarks in the former gasworks will also be refurbished including the neo-classic styled Chief Engineer’s Office built in 1857 and the research lab designed by Sir Walter Tapper in 1927.

The gasworks were established in 1824 by Imperial Gas Light and Coke Company, replacing the market gardens and orchards on the Sandford Manor estate.

2018 - Planning permission granted for demolition of existing buildings and structures (excluding No.2 Gasholder, 1856 Chief Engineer's Office, 1927 Former Research Laboratory, 1920 WW1 War Memorial and WW2 War Memorial) and redevelopment to provide a residential-led mixed use development comprising the erection of new buildings ranging from 1 to 37 storeys to provide up to 1,843 (including 646 Affordable Housing) residential units and ancillary residential facilities (C3 Use) and non-residential floorspace in Use Classes A1, A2, A3, A4, B1, D1 and D2, the provision of a new publicly accessible open space, new pedestrian and vehicle routes, accesses and amenity areas, basement level car park with integral servicing areas, interim works and other associated works.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council has secured 646 new genuinely affordable homes in south Fulham to help residents struggling to afford to stay in the borough.

The new housing development at the historic Fulham gasworks site will see the 16-acre plot in Imperial Road transformed into an exciting new neighbourhood along the river Thames.

It forms part of H&F Council’s efforts to ensure local people, rather than overseas property investors, benefit from local growth and development.

The housing scheme will deliver 1,843 new homes, including 646 new genuinely affordable homes in south Fulham.

Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts, commented: “This development is part of our drive to give local people struggling to cope with rocketing rents and house prices the chance to stay in the borough,”

“We’re building the largest number of genuinely affordable homes in a decade at zero cost to residents. We don’t want anyone to be left behind.”
