Judges from the London Planning Awards recently visited Isobel Place and the adjacent Grade II Listed Tottenham Town Hall which are finalists in the Best Heritage Led Project category of the awards.
The 109 home scheme for Newlon Housing Trust is situated on the historically sensitive site of the former Clyde Road depot and was designed to provide residents with generously proportioned contemporary homes whilst complementing its historical context. The scheme was part of a cross subsidy strategy to restore the adjacent Edwardian Grade II listed Tottenham Town Hall, providing much needed housing to the local community and aiding in the wider regeneration occurring in the area.
As well as undertaking planning and post contract architecture services, bptw’s planning consultants worked closely with bptw architecture to secure planning permission for the scheme.
The London Planning Awards are now in their tenth year and shortlisted entries are judged by a panel of experts from the GLA, London Councils, London First and RTPI. The awards will be presented by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, at a ceremony at City Hall on Tuesday 3 February 2015.
President of the RTPI, Cath Ranson, praised the quality of shortlisted schemes stating:
“Once again the awards shortlist feature a dazzling array of outstanding planning projects. The finalists demonstrate how planners are helping to make London an even better place to live, work or visit.”
