The Masterplan we have submitted to Camden Council looks to balance different but important priorities, and create a really sustainable place. We’ve worked really hard on the designs and recently have made some further changes in response to the feedback at our last consultation in October, this includes:
- Further reducing the overall number of homes to around 1,800, whilst maintaining the same commitment to 35% affordable homes across the masterplan. This represents a significant decrease from the 2,000 homes first consulted on in December 2020.
- Committing to family sized homes for the affordable housing, with over 50% of the low-cost rented homes as 3-bedroom homes in the Detailed Proposals.
- Delivering affordable housing for key workers, with 40% of affordable homes being provided as intermediate rent.
- The tallest building on site has been reduced in height to 15 storeys in the planning application.
- Removal of one building on the South to improve views, pedestrian experience and security along the linear park connecting Finchley Road to West Hampstead.
- Creating more space and a greater sense of openness around the new town square and safeguarding space for a better pedestrian connection to local stations.
Working with young people to shape the Masterplan
We have undertaken a number of additional activities to raise awareness and gather feedback from young people. This included appointing a specialist youth engagement agency, 2–3 Degrees, who carried out a separate programme of workshops and events. To-date we have held 6 workshops with young people from Camden aged 14–21 and this programme remains ongoing.
