Outline planning permission for Kodak site

Harrow Council has granted outline planning permission for the redevelopment of the Kodak site in Harrow, after a revised application was submitted by Land Securities.
The developer originally received consent for 985 homes in 2012, but has increased the number of homes to be built, following the designation of the location as a London Plan Opportunity Area. The proposed uses for the scheme, according to the planning application, “broadly remain the same”. A primary school, medical centre, shops and offices will be developed in addition to 1,800 homes.
The 16.5-ha scheme is split into two sites: one will be used for Kodak’s remaining production facilities and also includes surplus land to be redeveloped. The second is the sports ground part of the project. Of the 985 homes Land Securities originally recieved planning permission for, 314, based on the sports ground, are now being developed by Persimmon Homes, which won approval for these units earlier this year.
Land Securities estimates the development, which also includes a community centre, student accomodation and a retirement home, will create 1,500 jobs.
