Fleet Road

The Royal Free hospital in Hampstead is a sprawling complex and is particularly inefficient as it bumps into South End Green along it's Fleet Road boundary.

Our proposal is quite simple. Replace the surface level car park with a temporary multi-storey parking facility behind three distinct new buildings completing the street frontage onto Fleet Road with shops (or possibly health facilities) on the ground floor. The homes would be on the floors above. The development cost includes the new ground floor facilities and the replacement car parking.

There will be a legion of competing interests here with various clinics, departments and trusts guarding their own parking allocation. The hospital may have plans to build a new facility here. If they do, they can tell us what they want and we'll integrate it into a mixed use residential led development. The NHS will probably move slowly unless the GLA., Camden Council or Homes England step in to direct the better use of this site, which they have the power to do so.

The site would need a detailed and expensive design to be commissioned before it could be taken forward. We're prepared to do the necessary work to build out much needed homes on such publicly owned under-utilised land in Camden and Greater London.
