In September 2011, the London Borough of Haringey resolved to grant planning permission to National Grid for the redevelopment of the former Clarendon Gasworks, including up to 1,081 residential units plus mixed commercial floorspace. The site covers an area of 4.83 ha and the centre of the site is approximately 900 m southwest of Wood Green town centre.
In March 2015, the site was incorporated into the St William Joint Venture (Berkeley Homes and National Grid). An alternative masterplan is now being designed by Panther Hudsmith Architects which both maximises value and creates a liveable urban environment. The current scheme is for a residential-led mixed-use development of up to 1,500 new homes and mixed commercial floorspace including a new civic square.
Vectos has been engaged as the transport consultant for both schemes. A key part of the new proposals is to create a higher density development in a highly accessible location which addresses London Borough of Haringey's evolving plans.
Our approach has been to create a significantly enhanced new streetscape with pedestrians and cyclists as the principle users. This provides access for residents and visitors and creates a social space for new residents, but still discourages through traffic.
