Planning applications for an £8 billion scheme in Earls Court, West London, were submitted by developer EC Properties today.
The Capital and Counties subsidiary is seeking outline permission for a 31 ha Sir Terry Farrell designed masterplan, plus detailed permission for the 3 ha Seagrave Road car park site.
The Earls Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area includes more than 1 million sq m of development, including 7,500 homes; offices; leisure, hotel and retail space; a primary school; a library; an integrated health centre and 9.5 ha of public open space.
The application for the Seagrave Road site replaces the existing car park with a scheme comprising 808 new homes.
The masterplan is centred around the Earls Court Exhibition Centres, owned by EC Properties; Transport for London-owned railway lands; and the West Kensington and Gibbs Green housing estates, owned by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
It has been developed by EC Properties on behalf of the three landowners.
Both applications will be considered by the LBHF and the masterplan will also be considered by Kensington and Chelsea.
EC Properties director Gary Yardley said: “Our proposals for Earls Court represent a multi-billion pound investment in London. They will deliver thousands of much-needed new homes and jobs, and create a remarkable new place.
“Our planning application follows two years of consultation and we are proud to submit a masterplan which has been shaped by the community. It draws its inspiration from London, and specifically from the neighbouring areas of Kensington and Fulham.”
