Bell Cornwell has successfully obtained planning permission for a flatted scheme of 9 flats at Victoria Wharf, Kensal Green adjacent to a Grade II Listed building in the City of Westminster, London.
The site currently consists of a builders yard adjacent to the Grand Union Canal. The principle of development was acceptable, nevertheless, a previous application had been refused on this site and Bell Cornwell were instructed to collate a team to overcome the Councils concerns, which included the help of Vine Architecture Studio and Eight Associates.
Detailed discussions were required with the council and the Canal & River Trust to secure a high-quality design that responded to its context, nearby heritage assets, the canalscape and enhanced the ecological value of the canal which is a Metropolitan Site of Nature Conservation, whilst also protecting a neighbouring amenity.
