LB Harrow approved the outline plans, which will involve the demolition of around 90,000sqm of existing industrial buildings, and redevelopment to provide 6,000sqm of retail, including a 2,800sqm foodstore, 36,000sqm of employment space, a primary school, a community centre, a health centre, a care home, 120 units of student accomodation, 100 senior living units, an 80 bed care home, and 985 new homes, mainly family houses, which have been designed to meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Colette O’Shea, Land Securities’ Head of Development, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Harrow Council has approved plans for the Kodak site, which will allow for the delivery of this important regeneration opportunity in North West London.
“The support of Harrow Council and the Harrow and Wealdstone Intensification Area Forum, have been critical.
“The Kodak site is of great local interest with an important heritage legacy. These proposals will breathe new life into Harrow, create jobs and greatly enhance the public green space and amenities in the area enabling this genuinely inspirational place to be at the heart of the borough.”
The plans will be routinely referred to the Mayor of London.
