CMA Planning worked to develop proposals in collaboration with residents for the redevelopment of the Estate, a major regeneration project for London Borough of Camden.  Located North East of Camden Town on a site adjacent to two railway lines, the original estate dated from 1966.  It was built as social housing and comprised 249 homes arranged in a series of low-rise blocks clustered around an eighteen-storey tower.

Through a rigorous process of consultation with residents, proposals emerged with the reprovision of 249 homes and 244 new homes, bringing the total to 493.  CMA secured planning approval from LB Camden and the GLA in 2014 and continues to be involved through amendments and conditions to ensure delivery on site.  The scheme will be the UK’s largest Passivhaus development. 

Phase 1a was completed in April 2018 and in 2019 the scheme won the Mayor’s Award for Good Growth and the Mayor’s Award for Sustainable and Environmental Planning at the London Planning Awards.  It was shortlisted for the RTPI Awards 2019 - Excellence in Planning for Homes (small) and the British Homes Awards 2018 - Development of the year (more than 100 homes).  It also won a Housing Design Award in 2015.
