Green light for new residential development on derelict Earls Court site
A new residential development set to create 51 new homes at Earls Court has been given the go-ahead.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Planning Committee has approved plans for the redevelopment of 344-350 Old Brompton Road.
Designed by Pilbrow & Partners, the site - which has lain derelict for several years - is set to be transformed into 51 new homes for rent, including 23 affordable homes - and flexible ground floor commercial spaces.
Rob Heasman, CEO of The Earls Court Development Company, commented: “We welcome the decision by RBKC to approve this sensitively designed scheme.
“Derelict sites are of no benefit to London, and our attention now turns to delivering these homes which are so acutely needed. This is a positive start and a clear sign of our commitment to bring forward homes and jobs in Earls Court.
“Our team has worked closely with the Royal Borough and local community and business groups to help shape the development. We are excited about getting to work to deliver this new building at 344-350 Old Brompton Road.”
