A five storey block of flats could be built on the site of a vacant car park.

Property development company, Salboy Limited, has applied to Camden Council to build 11 flats on the site of the car park next to Harrington Square in Camden Town.

The site, which is close to Mornington Crescent station, was formerly a row of terraced homes before they were destroyed by bombing in the Second World War.

Under the proposals, a five-storey block with basement would be built, comprising eleven flats.

For the purposes of consultation, the developer is suggesting that the block would contain six three-bedroom flats, three two-bedroom flats and two one-bedroom flats.

Planning documents state that the scheme does not seek to replicate the facades of the surrounding housing, but instead “takes inspiration” from them.

The proposals claim that the development would be car-free and that it would improve landscaping to the surrounding area.

The applicant says it undertook several pre-application meetings with Camden’s planning team and that this has shaped the design of the proposed development.

Full details of the application can be found at Camden Council’s planning portal.

Comments on the proposals under reference 2023/3824/P can be made until October 6.
