CMA Planning worked with Hawkins\Brown to develop proposals in collaboration with residents for the redevelopment of the Estate, a major regeneration project for London Borough of Camden. The project is part of the Council’s Community Investment Programme and aims to be an exemplar for the borough, with high sustainability standards and a ‘fabric-first’ approach to increase energy performance. Located North East of Camden Town on a site adjacent to two railway lines, the original estate dates from 1966. It was built as social housing and comprises 249 homes arranged in a series of low-rise blocks clustered around an eighteen-storey tower (Lulworth). Through a rigorous process of consultation with the estate’s residents, the current proposal were developed including the demolition of 249 homes and the provision of around 244 new homes, bringing the total number of homes to 493. Planning approval from Camden and the GLA was obtained in April 2014. It was shortlisted for the 2014 New London Architecture Awards and was a 2015 Housing Design Awards winner.
