Planning Application – 7 St Pancras Way – change of use

Application Number: 2014/4684/P
Type: Variation or Removal of Condition(s)
Address: 7 St Pancras Way, London NW1 0PB

This planning application is interesting in that it shows what often happens with new buildings that gained planning permission by claiming to be building space for new businesses – shortly after construction they apply for a change of use from ‘work/office’ to ‘residential’.  They do this because it’s easier to get planning permisssion for a new build if they include space for new businesses and then apply for a change of use to residential than it is to apply for residential in the first instance.

Perhaps we shouldn’t blame developers for doing this.  It is after all a symptom of the nature of our planning laws and processes.  Rather than criticise the developer perhaps we should devote more time to fixing the root causes?

Proposal: Variation of condition 2 (approved plans) of planning permission 2013/2377/P dated 10/10/2013 (for change of use of front building from office and live work to office and residential, and rear building to residential, with associaqted alterations and extensions) namely replacement of proposed dormer to rear roofslope of front building with 4x rooflights, change of roof materials to front building from black metal cladding to slate, and minor changes to openings.

Walking and Cycling Improvements to road junctions between Pancras Rd Rail Bridge, Goods Way, Camley St, Pancras Rd, and Midland Rd

Camden Council is considering improving pedestrian and cycling facilities in our neighbourhood and is consulting residents and businesses about how best to deliver that objective.

A large part of Camden Council is moving this summer into a new building at 5 Pancras Square, King’s Cross. Apart from Council offices, the new building will also house a leisure centre and library, both of which will be available to the public. This building together with other developments in the vicinity are expected to attract a high volume of employees and visitors.

We want to improve the area for pedestrians, cyclists and those using public transport who will travel to and from the new buildings at Kings Cross. Improvements will also benefit those accessing St Pancras International Station, National Rail and London underground stations at Kings Cross.

Camden Council have published details of their initial proposals on WeAreCamden where you can find details and plan drawings of the proposed changes.

Camden’s ‘West End Project’ for the future of Tottenham Court Road

Camden council’s proposed West End project will transform the Tottenham Court Road area, making it safer and more attractive for residents, boosting business and creating new public spaces.

The one-way system will be replaced with two-way tree-lined streets, some protected cycle lanes and new public space. The scheme will reduce congestion and pollution, widen pavements and make bus journeys quicker.

Camden have secured £26 million of investment to improve Camden’s West End. The improvements will unlock the area’s potential, boosting business and creating new public spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy.
