279 New Homes & Pet Hospital

Our full range of agency and consultancy services have been put to the test in our coordination of a landmark scheme within Abbey Wood, adjacent to the soon to be open Crossrail station.

Having sold a 0.6 acre site on the junction of Eynsham Drive and Harrow Manorway, we identified that to be included in the adjoining pet hospital site owned by national charity People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals, the marriage value would significantly enhance the overall development potential.

On behalf of clients Definition Capital, we agreed terms with the PDSA to incorporate their site within a comprehensive development, which not only generated a significant cash receipt for the Charity, but would provide them with a new state of the art Pet Hospital.

Following extensive consultations, a scheme for 279 new homes, providing 40% Affordable Housing, was initially refused by Greenwich Council with a decision then “called in” by the GLA who resolved and approved the scheme. In a further twist, the Secretary of State Robert Jenerick, then placed a “holding order” on the GLA’s decision to approve the scheme, which was released (without explanation) after a further 6 month delay, meaning that planning permission could finally be granted.

Having now completed the acquisition of the various interests, construction will start on site in October 2020 and Kingsbury will continue their involvement in the project by progressing the Affordable Housing and New Homes sales.
