Abbey Area Redevelopment

On behalf of the London Borough of Camden a Retail Statement was prepared to accompany the outline planning application for the residential-led regeneration of the Abbey Road area. The proposals included 300 new dwellings, 1,300 sq m retail (A1-A5) including a small supermarket, and a new health centre.

The Retail Statement considered the application proposals within the national planning policy framework and demonstrated compliance with the relevant policy tests. The methodology emphasised the overarching policy to promote sustainable economic growth and to identify deficiencies in the provision of local convenience shopping and other facilities which serve people’s day-to-day needs.
