Project Description

Hotel, retail and office scheme

Clerkenwell Road, Islington

DPP Planning secured full planning permission for a mixed use development comprising of 222no. bed hotel, 5no. residential dwellings, 3no. retail / restaurant units and 93sqm of office / workshop floorspace. Given the site’s location within Central London, the site is heavily constrained within a Conservation Area, Archaeological Priority Area and Strategic Viewing Corridor. 

DPP undertook extensive pre-application discussions with local residents, Islington Council and Islington Design Review Panel. DPP then project managed the submission of the planning application securing approval in April 2015. The development is now completed. 


Given the constraints of the site and need to achieve a suitable design solution for this prominent location, DPP undertook extensive negotiations with Islington Council to a point where the application secured support at Committee.
