I've received a letter from Hackney council regarding the development of 514-600 Kingsland Rd.
Does any body have further details on what is proposed? Apparently the application can be viewed at the hackney service centre. I can't find anything online as regards the exact proposal (other than mention of buildings of 7/10/18 & 19 storeys).
As neighbours we have all been invited to provide feedback by 23 October 2013.
Oh my word! That is quite a development. In case no one has looked to see what is involved this is the stretch of Kingland that runs the full length of Dalston Square: From and including the noodle bar at the junction of Dalston Lane right through to and including the Oxfam shop at the junction of Forest Road.
Let's hope not. Had a quick look at the DAAP (Hackney Council's Dalston Area Action Plan) and this strip of shops is not included. Hopefully that will offer the properties some protection. Only time will tell. Would be useful if someone could find the time to go look at the plans and report back. Would do it myself but I am currently abroad and will not be back until after the closing date mentioned. Anyone?
also, if i'm correct (though) not sure the land isn't owned by one individual (unlike the land where we live on or the dalston lane strip) and contains many listed buildings. but it is interesting to find out what's going on.
My my I don't know what this is about! ...But if they are planning to build on Kingsland Road next to the Station and Railway line where the old shops are, that does suprise me it will steal all the light from the west facing apartments!. Then again, perhaps nothing comes as a surprise in Dalston as it is a development area. However before I pass comment I would like to see the detailed plans if someone can extract them. Are they not available on line from Hackney Council?
Interesting because the application is not for planning permission but rather for permission to change clause 18 of the already granted planning permission that was passed back in 2005. The development being referred to is not 514 - 600 Kingsland but the property to the rear of these addresses, namely Dalston Square! Doh!
Panic over it seems. The only remaining question is what was clause 18?
If you can pop in to the Council office and see what is going on Kevin that would be great.
aha, it's this one. I spotted it sometime ago while looking for new applications around the square (a sad hobby I know). the development it mentions is us! it would be a first, half a high street with several listed victorian and georgian shops torn down. and indeed Mark, the Dalston Action plan is quite clear about which sites it intends to develop.
