We secured planning permission on appeal for the conversion of the 1930’s electricity sub-station located within the Camden Town Conservation Area. The project provided for 21 new homes, the key issues on appeal relating to heritage, design and the quality of the resultant residential environment.
A range of development options were considered, with demolition dismissed at an early stage due to the sensitivity of the heritage and conservation issues. Following extensive pre-application discussions, a planning application was submitted in 2013. The scheme was refused, and allowed on appeal following a Public Inquiry.
The approved scheme provides for the retention of the front and side facades of the building with new accommodation built up to the Arlington Road frontage where existing windows are lowered. To rear most of the façade is demolished and replaced with new stepped accommodation. The approved scheme has been built out.
- The site saw the redevelopment of a historic electricity sub-station
- Permission was granted following a Public Enquiry
