Camden council has persuaded Terry Farrell & Partners to return as masterplanner to the £75 million Swiss Cottage scheme. He walked out on the project in February.
The scheme, which includes a sports centre, library, and luxury block of flats, has been mired in controversy following Farrell's decision to leave the scheme. He claimed the two developers, Barratt and Dawnay Day, had sidelined his practice.
However, Jane Roberts, the leader of Camden council, has entered the fray and successfully negotiated Farrell's return.
