Developer Land Securities has submitted outline plans drawn up by BDP for 985 homes and employment space in Harrow
The project, on surplus land at the Kodak production plant in Harrow, includes 38,000m² of space for office and business units.
According to the AJ’s sister publication Construction News, the land became available after Kodak made the transition to digital media and was left with surplus buildings.
Colette O’Shea, head of development for the London portfolio at Land Securities, said: ‘We are delighted to announce the submission of the Harrow View outline planning application. It has the potential to bring increased dynamism and energy to this part of the borough, whilst providing the public green space and amenities we know the local community wants.’
Brian McGowan, site manufacturing manager, Kodak Limited said: ‘Kodak has transformed into a successful digital company and as a result of this transition, a number of buildings have been demolished and there will be further consolidation of our site. Our arrangement with Land Securities realises the development opportunity presented by land surplus to our requirements. We have been, and will continue to be, part of the Harrow community. The outline planning application helps to ensure the site continues to play a vitally important role in the future of the borough.’
