Positive Planning Decision for Seagrave Road
Last night the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF) resolved to grant detailed planning permission for the proposals to redevelop the Seagrave Road car park site into an exciting new residential quarter with 808 new homes ranging from townhouses to apartments around a new public garden square.
The project includes 200 affordable homes that will be made available for the relocation of some residents of the Gibbs Green and West Kensington Estates in the event that regeneration of these estates occurs.
As announced in December, Capco has a conditional agreement with entities in which certain members of the Kwok family are interested (the “Kwok Family Interests”) to form a 50:50 joint venture in respect of Capco’s interests in and around Seagrave Road. Completion of the JV is expected upon expiry of the three month statutory period which follows finalisation of the section 106 Agreement and sign off from the Mayor of London.
Ian Hawksworth, Chief Executive of Capco said:
“We are delighted by the Council’s decision on Seagrave Road. It confirms our long term view of the value which can be unlocked from Capco’s holdings in the area through a residential-led scheme. The site is an exciting opportunity to begin the transformation of the area, creating hundreds of new homes and jobs. We look forward to pursuing our plans for the project within the joint venture with the Kwok Family Interests.”
