|Have Your Say about Plans for Seagrave Road and Earls Court|
Speak up about proposals for massive new developments
Hammersmith and Fulham Council is inviting local residents to comment on planning applications submitted by EC Properties Ltd, the company proposing to redevelop Earls Court.
The applications consist of two outline planning applications and a conservation area consent application for the Earls Court site, plus a detailed planning application to redevelop the Seagrave Road Lorry Park site and land off Roxby Place.
Together, these applications seek permission for the redevelopment of an area of 28 hectares (69 acres), including the Earls Court Exhibition Centres, the Lillie Bridge Rail Depot and the West Kensington and Gibbs Green Housing Estates.
The Seagrave Road application seeks permission to provide 808 residential properties, including 200 affordable properties, constructed in 8 residential blocks, ranging from 4 to 16 storeys height above ground level. In the centre of the development is a garden square. The application also includes a gym facility with associated café and 485 car parking spaces.
The affordable housing provision would comprise the first phase of the development enabling the regeneration of the Gibbs Green and West Kensington estates being considered under a separate outline planning application.
In the event the wider Earl’s Court proposals do not occur, this application would still seek to provide an affordable housing provision of 200 units on this site.
The proposed development at Earls Court meanwhile would provide up to 7,500 homes, plus a new high street offering retail, commercial and community facilities, and a new public Lost River Park.
The application drawings and supporting documents including the Environmental Statement can also be seen between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) at Hammersmith Town Hall in King Street.
Copies of the full Environmental Statement can be purchased from Dp9 Planning at a charge of £1,500. Alternatively, Dp9 Planning will provide either CD’s or memory sticks detailing the Environmental Statement free of charge. Please write to:
