The Alternative to the Euston Area Plan

 

The Maria Fidelis Site.

The London Plan looks to share school sports facilities with the local community. LB Camden have their sights on using the site to maximise revenues by building new offices and homes – some of which will be sold off.

Drummond Street

The EAP has little to say on the surrounding neighbourhood. Drummond Street is directly affected by the proporsed new station and the community priority is to ensurethat trade is maintained and enhanced by the project. This is in line with national and local planning guidance. The community priority is to invest in streetscape improvements to the area to increase footfall.

What the view could look like with development in line with planning policy.  A streetscene that respects the existing built environment. Planning permission can be given to development that does not compete directly with the existing Drummond St restaurants and shops but complements these.

 

 

 

 

The EAP should sit within the esisting neighbourhood however there is little to illustrate that the existing neighbourhood is part of the Plan.

This is the likely view from the new station outwards across Coburg St and into Drummond Street. The blank wall on the left is a Network Rail building. It does little to entice people out of the station and into Drummond St. The street itself lacks attractiveness from this viewpoint despite hosting some of the finest restaurants and eateries in this part of London.

 

 

Slide5
A view much improved? The Network Rail building remains a problem though.

 

 

It is accepted by the community that development must be viable and we are willing to entertain a tall building if it is suitable.
