Phase 3a/3b - Redevelopment of Peel

At the Place West London Awards on the 9 May 2017, the Peel Development Site won the Future Project category.

Planning permission for Peel

This is a major milestone for the Peel site, a site which is at the heart of South Kilburn and aims to deliver another high quality development for the community.

Brent Council appointed Penoyre and Prasad Architects to lead the design team through to a hybrid planning application for the redevelopment of this site which was submitted in September 2016.

On the 15 February 2017, the Planning Committee resolved to grant planning permission for the Peel site.

Due to the size of the scheme, the application was referred to the Mayor of London. On 14 March 2017, the Mayor of London confirmed that he was content to allow Brent Council to determine the case itself.

What will Peel deliver

The Peel site includes: Peel Precinct, 97-112 Carlton House, 8-14 Neville Close, 2A Canterbury Road and Peel site garages

What will be delivered

The current planning permission is for:

  • 42 affordable homes for existing secure South Kilburn Ccouncil tenants
  • Up to 184 private sale homes
  • A new health centre with flexible first floor space
  • Three retail units at ground floor – anticipated for pharmacy, café and retail use
  • Highways and Public Realm improvements including a new public space in front of the Health Centre

Countryside are working to submit a new planning application for:

308 homes – which will continue to include the 42 affordable homes for existing secure South Kilburn Council tenants, and is to also include 79 shared ownership homes

There will also be a Health & Wellbeing Hub featuring the health centre and now due to include a gym, an array of shops and a new market square.

The development will have a strong social value offer which will tie in with the wider South Kilburn regeneration.

The original scheme was designed by Penoyre & Prasad architects and will be taken forward by Child Graddon Lewis Architects.

The first phase which will have 38 affordable homes for existing secure South Kilburn Council tenants, will be started early 2019, and due to complete late 2020. The whole scheme will build out in phases and is expected to complete in 2025.

The South Kilburn Regeneration team have identified that the following practices could be accommodated at the Peel site and whom we are working with:

  • Blessing Medical Centre (307 Kilburn Lane)
  • Kilburn Park Medical Centre (12 Cambridge Gardens)
  • Peel Precinct Surgery (3 Peel Precinct)

What’s happening already

Residents have been moving. Some of the Council’s secure tenants have already moved off the Peel site into other properties, some into one of the other developments at Queen’s Park Place.

A number of leaseholders have also moved out as the  Council has acquired these properties. 

You will have seen that the majority of shops at the Peel Precinct have closed, as the Council acquires these properties. The community will still be able to get day to day goods from Marks and Spencer on Salusbury Road and at Best-One on Rupert Road.

Peel Precinct Surgery has moved to Carlton Hall on Denmark Road.

South Kilburn Trust and South Kilburn Studios have moved to the Granville Centre.

We are aware that with residents and commercial operators moving out of the Peel Precinct, the area is feeling quieter, the Council, while you may not see, does do patrols of the site during the week to check everything is ok.

What will happen next

The Council will continue to acquire properties on the Peel site that it requires for the redevelopment.

Towards the end of 2018, you may see some early works happening on the site.
