Robin Partington Shepherd's Bush scheme clears crucial hurdle
Robin Partington and Partners (RPP) has been granted consent for its controversial overhaul of Shepherd’s Bush Market in west London
Against a backdrop of protest from disgruntled stall holders concerned about the future of the 100 year-old market, The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham last night (3 April) granted ‘reserved matters consent’ for the £150million scheme for Orion and Development Securities.
The scheme will involve the upgrading of railway arches, the provision of new fixed units and stalls and the construction of a ‘podium deck’ which will support four new buildings, providing 212 new homes.
In a statement RPP said: ‘The proposal will enhance the best aspects of the existing market, improve its integration with the surrounding context and provide a range of flexible use spaces’.
