Phase 3a - Land North of Chippenham Gardens
4-26 Stuart Road (even numbers only) and 5-9 Chippenham Gardens
The redevelopment site comprising of 4-26 Stuart Road (even numbers only) and 5-9 Chippenham Gardens forms part of phase 3a of the South Kilburn regeneration programme. The redevelopment site is often referred to as the ‘LNCG’ redevelopment site.
The scheme has been designed by award winning architects PRP Architects and the wider multi-disciplinary design team and underwent an extensive and inclusive consultation process with existing residents and wider stakeholders.
The Planning approved scheme compromises of:
- 52 new high-quality homes (22 high-quality homes for existing secure tenants of South Kilburn for affordable social rent);
- New enhanced Public Square (adopted highway) adjacent to the site
- Wider landscape and highway improvements (Brent Highways intend to adopt Stuart Road and the pathway from Kilburn Park Road to Chippenham Gardens)
- The scheme is a car-free development.
- CPZ Parking intends to be implemented along Stuart Road
As part of the South Kilburn Regeneration Decant Strategy some of the existing secure tenants from 1-8 Neville House, 1-64 Winterleys Court, 113-128 Carlton House and 1-71 Blake Court are expected to be rehoused within the new development.
Redevelopment of the site has taken a major step forwards with the Council awarding a contract for a Delivery Partner to Higgins Group Plc, which will partner with Octavia Housing as housing provider.
The typical construction period for this type of development varies between 18 – 24 months. The project is expected to complete Winter 2022.
The demolition of 4-26 Stuart Road (even numbers only) and 5-9 Chippenham Gardens was completed in August 2020. As of December 2020 the ground on site has been piled with works progressing on the foundations and construction of the reinforced concrete frame. For more information regarding the upcoming programme of works, please see Higgins’ latest Newsletter (August 2020).
Higgins in partnership with Brent Council, have also arranged for drone images of the site to be captured on a monthly basis, monitoring the progress from a bird’s eye view. The below left photo shows the site on 24 June 2020 towards the start of demolition. The below right photo shows the site on 26 November 2020 during the formation of the foundations.
