Following four phases of consultation with local residents, businesses and community groups, we have now submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Camden for the O2 Masterplan Site.
The application has now been validated and can be found on the council’s website under planning reference 2022/0528/P.
The proposals would see the Site – which includes the existing O2 Shopping Centre on Finchley Road, and surrounding land – transformed into a new, landscape-led neighbourhood with green spaces and routes connecting Finchley Road and West End Lane.
The submitted application is part detail, part outline.
Overall, the scheme will deliver:
Around 1,800 new homes with 35% affordable homes
A long tree-lined park connecting West Hampstead and Finchley Road
50% of the 5.77ha site dedicated to public realm and green spaces, which will be open and accessible to all
Up to 16,700sqm of commercial, workspace and community uses across the masterplan including a new town square with restaurants, leisure spaces and shops
Space provided for popular local amenities including a supermarket, gym and cinema
A new community centre and multi-disciplinary health centre
A large new 0.35ha community green,0.64ha linear park, 0.30ha new town square and 0.17ha central square with a community garden
Safeguarding space for and contributing financially to station access improvements
