Kidbrooke Station Square


Kidbrooke Station Square

Kidbrooke Partnership LLP (a joint venture between Transport for London and Notting Hill Genesis)

Lichfields helped the Kidbrooke Partnership to secure full planning permission for the redevelopment of a 1.7ha underutilised site adjacent to Kidbrooke railway station.
The Kidbrooke Station Square scheme will complete the Hub, Kidbrooke’s new local centre around its railway station. It will provide 619 new homes (50% affordable), together with replacement bus / rail interchange, business workspace, shops and a nursery around two new squares, within buildings of 9 to 20 storeys.
The Deputy Mayor of London resolved to approve the full planning application on 31 October, in accordance with GLA Officers’ recommendation, following RB Greenwich [RBG] Planning Board’s resolution to refuse the application contrary to its Officers’ approval recommendation.
Lichfields was involved from the outset. We formed part of Notting Hill Genesis’ successful tender team, winning the first TfL Property Partnership Framework project. Our strategic and detailed planning advice, together with our townscape and visual impact work, helped to shape this placemaking proposal, through the feasibility, pre-application and application stages. We coordinated the pre-application assessments and engagement and the subsequent full application through to the RBG and Mayoral decisions.
Lichfields continues to work with the Kidbrooke Partnership  on the subsequent discharging of conditions and development implementation.
We are delighted to have been given the go-ahead for this exciting new development. Our vision is to create a high-quality, mixed-use development which completes the new local centre at Kidbrooke and contributes positively to the regeneration of the area for the benefit of the whole community.

We are very happy with the excellent service that Lichfields has provided us, helping us to win the original Tender, guiding the KPLLP’s pre-application strategy, coordinating the full planning application submission and positive negotiation with RBG and GLA Officers and other stakeholders through to permission being granted by the Deputy Mayor, Jules Pipe.
