The most far-reaching part of the scheme will see the demolition of existing listed market buildings, including the Middle Yard building, and erection of a new building in its place ranging from three storeys in the south to six storeys to the north.

The new building will be constructed of bronze sheet metal cladding and aluminium metal works.

The scheme was approved by members of Camden’s development control committee tonight, with two conditions.

First developers must implement a 106 agreement with a strategy plan relocating existing traders while the development goes ahead and second provide a new building in the Middle Yard for manufacturing.

There will be a full report in next week’s edition of the Ham&High, out on Thursday.
