Soundings activity update – July 2013

We hope you’ve been enjoying the sunny summer weather! Here’s a catch-up of the exciting projects we’ve been doing all across the city. Click on the project website links to find out more!


Consultation on The Goodsyard continues to grow into summer 2013 following a successful period of community engagement earlier this year. The unique site between Shoreditch, Banglatown and Spitalfields was formerly home to the Bishopsgate Goods Yard depot and has been identified as a major development opportunity that will help to regenerate the area.

Following wide-ranging outreach and engagement earlier this year, we held an Ideas Week in June – an intense period of idea generation and design activity with exhibitions, public workshops and focus sessions involving the whole community (view the video above!). The Concept Masterplan Exhibition took place in July, where early design responses from the masterplanning team were presented to gather feedback and understand if the scheme is headed in the right direction.

Further consultation and youth engagement within the local community will be happening in the coming months, where more detailed information on the design will be developed and broad parameters of the masterplan have been agreed. Please visit the website, Twitter, or Facebook to get involved.


The hybrid-planning application for London Dock was submitted on 29th May and was followed by an exhibition presenting the planning documents and key information on the 29th of June, 2nd and 3rd of July and a Community Forum hosted by Tower Hamlets on the 4th of July. Visit the website to find out more.


In June we held a public exhibition presenting the evolving masterplan for the site, in order to gather feedback from the local community. This is now being reviewed by the design and developer team and further consultation events will take place in due course. Visit the website to find out more about the project and keep up to date with the consultation.


A series of well-attended exhibitions and workshops took place in mid-June on the redevelopment of the Hornsey Depot site in Haringey. The site is proposed to be a a mix used development with 400 homes by St. James, a Sainsbury’s store, car park, and work space. At the exhibition visitors could see plans for the site, discuss these with the team and leave their feedback. Ideas for how to integrate the development into the local area and community, and traffic and parking issues were discussed in greater depth at two evening workshops.

Visit the website to find out more about the proposals and how to get involved in the consultation.


A successful exhibition was held over 5 days in late June to present the final designs for the redevelopment of 200-222 Kings Road. The feedback from this is now being reviewed. For more information please visit the website.
