Call on Camden Council to demand better from the developers of the O2 Centre car park site.
The planning application for the redevelopment of the O2 Centre, Homebase and car park will have a huge impact on the area, with plans for 1,800 homes, and the closure of the Sainsbury’s and Homebase stores.
Commenting on the planning application, Fortune Green councillor Nancy Jirira said “It will be down to Camden Council to decide whether this development should be approved. The local Lib Dems have said from the start that a large car park is not a good use of such a well-connected site, but new housing must mean new services, including upgrades to local stations, a new GP surgery, and plenty of open space.”
Lib Dem campaigners across the local area have been listening to residents, who say that the plans don’t yet strike the right balance between new housing, including affordable housing, and the impact on existing residents, such as additional congestion at West Hampstead tube station, and losing the big Sainsbury’s.
For more information, and to comment directly on the plans, search for planning applications on Camden’s Council’s website, and use Reference 2022/0528/P.
We, the undersigned call on Camden Council to ensure any O2 Centre site redevelopment
- Meets the standard for green open space
- Achieves Camden’s target of 50% affordable housing
- Helps to pay for upgrades to local stations, including putting in lifts
