RBKC adopts new Earls Court planning policy
E Properties Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Capital & Counties Properties PLC) welcomes the decision by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea to adopt a new policy document, known as the Supplementary Planning Document (“SPD”), covering the Earls Court & West Kensington Opportunity Area (“ECOA”).
The announcement follows the adoption of the SPD by the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham earlier this week.
The SPD supports the planning policy basis for the consideration of the planning application for Sir Terry Farrell’s Earls Court Masterplan, which proposes a 7,500 home development across the ECOA.
The site has already been identified as an Opportunity Area by the Mayor of London in the London Plan, meaning it is considered as a site potentially suitable for comprehensive development.
