Plans to convert a former bar and coffee shop next to a Tube station into flats have been put forward.

The ground floor of 1 Hurdwick Place, which stands next to Mornington Crescent station, was previously occupied by Crescent bar.

But planning documents submitted to Camden Council claim that the venue last traded in 2019 and has failed to reopen.

New proposals now aim to repurpose the basement and ground floor of the building, changing their use from commercial to residential.

Under the plans, two flats would occupy the basement level of the building, with a single flat to be contained within the former ground floor bar and café.

There are already 10 existing flats on the first, second and third floors of the building.

The developer has also proposed reconfiguring these to reduce the overall number of flat to seven across all five floors.

A previous application submitted in 2021, but later withdrawn, proposed retaining the ground floor restaurant space and using the remaining four floors for eight flats.

Informal notes from the planning officer at the time said that some of these proposed flats would be too small under national housing standards.

The developer has said that these issues have been addressed in the latest application, as fewer flats are proposed and will be spread out over more floors.

Comments on the application (2022/5518/P) can be made on Camden Council’s planning portal until August 6.
