A Grade II-listed former police station could soon be turned into flats, offices and a private healthcare space.

Hampstead Police Station in Rosslyn Hill has been largely vacant since 2013, and was bought by developer Redington Capital for around £10 million three years ago.

Abacus Belsize Primary School had previously twice tried and failed to make the building its home, with Camden Council and then a planning inspector rejecting its bids.

At the time, CEO James Frost told the Ham and High that the firm would not be extending the building, or doing “anything contentious” with it.

But under plans submitted to Camden Council last month, extensions have been proposed to the rear of all four floors of the building.

This includes a courtyard infill extension for a new residential lift, as well as an extension to make more space for homes and offices.

Five flats are planned for the upper two floors of the building, while offices and the new private healthcare space would take up the ground and lower ground floors.

Four of the flats will have outdoor space in the form of a terrace or balcony, and new landscaping is proposed to the rear of the building.

In total, there would be one three bedroom flat and two single bedroom flats. The remaining two homes would have two bedrooms each.

Although the former magistrates court within the building would be converted into office space, the developer claims it aims to “retain as much original fabric as possible”.

This includes keeping the magistrate’s bench and lawyers’ desks, along with the public waiting room.

The stable block to the rear of the building is under separate ownership, and is already subject to different plans to convert it into a family home.

Comments on the new application for Hampstead Police Station itself can be made until April 28.

Full details of the proposals can be found on the Camden Council planning portal under reference 2024/1078/P.
