Council approves 1,000 home gas works plan
Haringey Council has granted outline planning permission for a 1,000 home development on the site of a former gas works.
The Clarendon Square scheme is being developed by National Grid Property and the London Development Agency. The plans include up to 1,080 homes, which consists of 207 units of affordable housing alongside apartments, maisonettes and houses.
The development will also include a public square, restaurants and bars, office and community space, and roof-top allotments.
Stephen Kennard, director of development at the LDA, 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.’
Claire Kober, leader of Haringey Council, said: ‘This land has laid derelict for a number of years and we are looking forward to finally seeing it regenerated through a landmark scheme which will bring much needed jobs and homes to the heart of the borough.’
The outline planning consent is subject to the agreement of an £8 million section 106 agreement and approval by the mayor of London.
