Kentish Town Planning Framework
The Kentish Town Planning Framework was adopted on the 17th July 2020.
The framework sets out a vision and key aims for this area of the borough. We see it as an innovative and sustainable mixed-use new neighbourhood. It will have industrial, commercial and creative activity, provided alongside high quality homes that support a diverse local community.
It is a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) designed to support the Local Plan aims. It will also guide future development proposals in the area. We consider the framework when we assess planning applications.
What happens next?
The Local Plan and the Planning Framework call for a comprehensive and co-ordinated approach to development in the framework area.
With the planning framework now in place, we are working with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to develop the area. Over the next few months we plan to discuss with landowners how this can be achieved.
As set out in the planning framework, we expect there to be two planning applications. One will cover the Murphy site, the other the Regis Road Growth Area. There could though be a single application covering both. Plot-by-plot or piecemeal redevelopment proposals will not be acceptable.
Until a full redevelopment is outlined, we want this area to stay as a working industrial area. It provides jobs and helps our economy. Any business or landowner thinking of short-term maintenance works that would require planning permission should contact us first. You should also contact us with your concerns about the longer-term future of your site.
