National Grid Property Holdings and the London Development Agency (LDA) have submitted an outline planning application for a major regeneration proposal in the London Borough of Haringey, North London.
The scheme, which is known as Clarendon Square at Haringey Heartlands, will regenerate a 12.3 acre site as a residential led mixed-use development. It will comprise 1,200 residential units, with associated commercial, leisure and community uses set around a new public square.
The site includes land and buildings owned by National Grid Properties and the LDA and Steve Kennard, land and development director at the LDA, said the scheme represented ‘a prime example of the public and private sector working together to catalyse development and regeneration in a way that secures significant long term social, environmental and economic benefits for local communities’.
Adrian Cross, director at National Grid, said: ‘National Grid Pproperty and the LDA have worked hard with the council and wider community to create exciting proposals for a new residential district for Wood Green. The scheme is centred around a high quality public square similar in size to Sloane Square. The proposals will regenerate this former gas works site which represents the first phase of the redevelopment of the Haringey Heartlands.’
The proposals have been designed by Make Architects and Drivers Jonas are providing planning and development advice.
Nick Taylor, planning partner at Drivers Jonas, said: ‘The proposals will create a new and exciting urban quarter, helping to regenerate this strategically important site, whilst providing investment into the local area.’
