The London Borough of Haringey has granted outline planning consent to the National Grid Property and London Development Agency scheme to create 1,080 new homes on the site of Hornsey’s old gas works.
The mixed use scheme will be built around a public square.
National Grid commercial property manager Adrian Cross said: “Haringey Council’s decision to resolve to grant planning represents an important milestone in the regeneration of this strategically important site.”
London Development Agency director of development Stephen Kennard said: “Clarendon Square has the potential to create an exciting new community hub, with a thousand new homes around a new public square. This decision will mean we can now move to the next stage and begin to find a developer for this former industrial site.”
Make architects designed the scheme after Rogers pulled out in 2007.
Make partner Stuart Blower said: “We are delighted that London Borough of Haringey has granted approval for our masterplan on this important site. Extensive stakeholder consultation has been undertaken and we are thrilled to be a step closer to realising the vision of a residential-led scheme with quality open space, including a major new public square.”
The designs will include a mix of apartments, maisonettes and houses that complement the existing terraced and semi detached housing stock to the east of the site.
Haringey’s outline planning consent is subject to signing a section 106 agreement with National Grid Property and the London Development Agency.
