Pollard Thomas Edwards (PTE) has landed planning permission for 460 homes as part of the redevelopment of the former Kodak factory site in Harrow
Councillors recently voted to approve the plan – phase one of the Harrow View East development – which will see 40 per cent of the new homes provided designated ‘affordable’.
The scheme is part of BDP’s 2015 masterplan for the whole former Kodak industrial complex, which includes 1,800 new homes, a school, shops and commercial space.
PTE’s scheme has been designed for Barratt London and the Hyde Group, which, as Harrow View, jointly acquired a large part of the site in 2017.
The AJ100 practice’s proposal creates a series of new streets which will link the Kodak Site back into the surrounding area, and transform the existing boundary with a series of new mansion blocks.
PTE partner Dominique Oliver said: ‘We have developed a design that supports the principles of the original BDP masterplan, and that enables a very positive and complementary connection with the existing neighbourhood, to make this an attractive, familial new quarter in Harrow.’
A report by planners to the council said: ‘The proposed development is considered to be of a good design that responds positively to the character of the area due to its use of materials and scale, which respond positively to its context while providing a unique sense of place through the detailed design.’
