Imperial developing plans for Woodlands

Imperial College are developing plans for the former BBC Woodlands site.

The College are reported to be considering demolishing most of the buildings on the site, and wants to use the site to create new teaching, research and administration facilities and to provide student accommodation.

The new development is likely to be made up of domestic scale dwellings on the Shinfield Street side, medium-rise buildings in the centre of the site and taller buildings next to the Westway. Small retail units such as a convenience store and a pharmacy, new homes, new commercial offices, a hotel, sports facilities, a GP surgery and an early years education nursery are also included.

Imperial are reported to intend to open up the site creating an open space at the heart of the campus which will be open to the public, creating pedestrian and cycling routes through the site, which has been closed to the public for many years.
