After 2 years of extensive consultation and collaboration with residents, King Square Estate has been granted planning permission by a unanimous vote at the Islington planning committee.
In 2013 PTE won a competition for Islington to regenerate King Square estate. The scheme provides 140 new homes, 70% of which are affordable, a refurbished nursery and a new community facility on constrained in-fill sites within the existing estate. Receipts from the sale of 42 private market sale apartments will provide funding for £2m of estate improvements and £8m for the construction of a new primary school on Moreland Street. The construction of Phase 1 is due to start in Jan 2016.
