Carter Jonas advise the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) on the redevelopment of its residential and commercial development opportunities, three sites around Ladbroke Grove, North Kensington.
The sites are brownfield opportunities. One is currently an adult education facility which will be provided in a brand new facility as part of the deal. The aim is to enable redevelopment of the sites, to provide 80+ residential units, and the replacement of the existing commercial office and D1 accommodation.
The opportunity exists to take the three sites forward either as a single planning application and development, or individually. By considering the sites together we wish to utilise a “donor” site for the affordable accommodation, in order to maximise the number of homes and value to the landowner.
We have co-ordinated and managed a pre-application process with the Local Planning Authority and are now marketing the opportunity for sale.
