London Square secures go-ahead for its new project in Kingston at a virtual planning committee meeting.

The 1.5-acre scheme located in Crescent Road, Kingston was granted permission at the first virtual planning committee held by the London Borough of Kingston. The site was formerly a riding school and is now relocating to new facilities in Chessington.   

There will be two new villa-style apartment buildings in a tree-lined setting, with contemporary design and sustainability features, including extensive PV panels hidden in the roofs. The scheme will have 52 apartments in total, a mix of one, two and three bedroom units, including 17 affordable homes, with communal gardens and dedicated play space. 

The development is a short walk from Richmond Park, Norbiton station is nearby, with trains to Waterloo in 20 minutes, and shops and restaurants of Kingston town centre are just over a mile away.  London Square will start on site later in 2020. 

Adam Lawrence, Chief Executive, London Square, said: ‘Our developments in Kingston (and Watford) continue to reflect our strategy of targeting good locations in Greater London and beyond to deliver new homes for private sale and affordable tenures, with good transport links close to the capital.’

London Square currently has 1,018 homes in production, forward sales of £180m and a land pipeline of 2,356 homes representing £1.3bn in gross development value.
