Planning permission granted for regeneration of London housing area
HTA has won planning approval for regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate, having led the design team throughout the bid and planning process. Notting Hill Housing’s proposals for more than 3500 homes received the green light on Thursday 23rd April 2015.
Two separate applications were approved; one for the first development site which will see 830 homes built, with extensive new public open space including two new parks, and the other for the outline masterplan for the remainder of the estate in which a further 2745 homes will be created.
James Lord, partner and head of landscape at HTA Design, says, 'It is great news! This is a project where the public realm and landscape have led the masterplan from the start. We are looking forward to creating a place that all Londoners, from every background, can make their home.’
The aim is to create a new part of London that knits seamlessly into the surrounding city with high-quality streets, beautiful open spaces and some of the most spacious and light homes in central London. It is, says HTA, about creating a place where families will choose to bring up their children, with safe streets and well maintained parks, close to good schools and excellent job opportunities, right in the heart of London in a healthy and economically active place.
The Section 106 agreement will be signed by the end of July, with demolition work due to begin in the autumn.
