Lambert Smith Hampton, on behalf of Catalyst and development partner The Hill Group have submitted a hybrid planning application to Haringey Council for a mixed-use development on a site adjacent to St Ann’s Hospital in South Tottenham.
Lambert Smith Hampton’s Planning Team have been progressing the scheme with the assistance of a wider design team including Karakusevic Carson Architects (Architects), Adams and Sutherland (Landscape Architects), Markides Associates (Transport Consultants), XC02 (Energy), Bioregional (Sustainability) and Barton Willmore (Environmental Assessment coordinators).
When approved, the redevelopment will include up to 995 new homes, 60% of which will be affordable – helping to deliver much-needed housing in the area.
The site will also provide community-led housing, new and enhanced green spaces, shops, and other commercial uses, including affordable workspaces, while retaining and restoring several historic hospital buildings.
The former St Ann’s Hospital site was originally purchased by the Mayor of London using some of his £250m Land Fund to acquire land to deliver more affordable homes for Londoners. Catalyst was selected by the Mayor to develop the site in late 2020.
LSH submitted a planning application for the scheme to Haringey Council on 6 July. The submission followed more than a year of consultation with the local community, which included a festival that was attended by more than 300 people.
The hybrid application contains detailed plans for 239 homes within the first phase at the northwest of the site, with outline plans for an additional 756 homes over future phases. While the current masterplan is for 971 homes, the planning application is for up to 995 homes, as future phases are yet to be designed in detail.
Mary-Jane O’Neill, Head of Planning at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “We are thrilled to have submitted the planning application for the proposed residential-led development at St Ann’s New Neighbourhood. It has been a pleasure working with Catalyst, Hill and the rest of the design team to realise the development potential of the Site, which will deliver up to 995 new homes. 60% of the homes will be affordable and also includes non-residential uses, lots of new open space and some great sustainability credentials in a scheme with a fantastic, high-quality design. We look forward to working with officers and members at the London Borough of Haringey to progress the application towards approval”.
Philip Jenkins, Executive Director of Development at Peabody, said: “We are delighted that our plans for St Ann’s New Neighbourhood have reached this critical milestone. We aim to deliver hundreds of much-needed new affordable homes in Haringey, as well as affordable workspaces and a network of green spaces, while sympathetically preserving the heritage of the hospital site for future generations. We are looking forward to working with the local community to make these exciting plans a reality.”
Andy Hill, Chief Executive at The Hill Group comments: “The submitted planning application for up to 995 new homes in Haringey is a significant step forward in the provision of much-needed affordable housing for the borough. We are proud to be working with Catalyst to create this landmark project, whilst working closely with the local community to ensure the delivery of their vision.”
