King Street plans approved

Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s planning applications committee approved the regeneration scheme, from King Street Developments Hammersmith Ltd (KSD) – a joint venture between Helical Bar plc and Grainger plc, at a meeting on 12 November. Subject to verification by the Mayor of London, the planning approval will pave the way for KSD to regenerate the area around and including the town hall extension with a new cinema, new public spaces, shops, homes and offices. The development includes: 196 high quality new homes; a three-screen community cinema, to be operated by Curzon; new retail, restaurant and cafe space; replacement offices for the council and a new town square. KSD will also provide £5.25 million towards a regeneration fund to boost the surrounding area and refurbish the Grade-II listed town hall.
