Morrisons and Barratts have received planning approval to redevelop the supermarket site between Juniper Crescent and Gilbeys Yard and the petrol station area on Chalk Farm Road. The new development will create around 570 new homes as well as shops, office space and a new supermarket. This will change the area quite significantly.
One Housing owns and manages most of the properties at Juniper Crescent and Gilbeys Yard, which are either side of the Barratt/Morrisons development site. As a responsible landlord, we are thinking about the challenges that the redevelopment brings, how we address these and any opportunities it may offer. We are therefore starting to think about wider options for the future of the neighbourhood and want to talk to our residents to understand your aspirations for your homes and the local area.
Camden Council has produced a planning framework which presents a set of guidelines on how they would like the local area to evolve through any redevelopment. We've been talking to Barratt about their plans and to Camden Council about the scope of the planning framework.
As a result we are now carrying out an ‘options appraisal’ process for both Gilbeys Yard and Juniper Crescent. This means that we are gathering a lot of information about the area and the buildings and talking to those who live there about their experiences and wishes. We are using that information to assess some ‘options’ for the future of the estates, which range from doing nothing at all to the full redevelopment of the area.
Our objectives for the area include:
ensuring that residents benefit fully from any redevelopment
providing better homes for our residents supporting the local community
improving the streets and open spaces, and linking better with the surrounding area
looking at ways in which we can provide new homes to meet the need for more housing in the area.
