Clearview’s Plans for Northolt Road Garage Site

We’ve now received further details of the proposed development planned by Clearview Homes for the old Northolt Road Total petrol station – latterly a carwash site – next to Sainsbury’s. The details from Clearview’s Town Planning Consultants, Preston Bennett:

“The Planning Application submitted for this former self-service jet car wash is proposed by established North London developer Clearview Homes with award winning architects Assael. Preston Bennett Planning as town planning consultants, have together proposed a residential scheme for the redevelopment of this site which will be of the highest quality in design, materials and sustainability, in full accordance with the housing-led regeneration objectives of Harrow Council, and at the heart of the Government’s current Planning Policy agenda, to bring vacant and poor quality previously developed sites in accessible locations back into effective use and support town centres. The proposed mixed residential scheme with a range of flats and houses will meet the housing needs of the local area.

The attractive scheme ensures that all existing residents and future residential amenities are fully protected, with the scale of the proposed building complementing nearby residential and commercial properties and stepping up away from these houses to a prominent and focal corner. The development will stimulate the regeneration of this part of South Harrow, to the economic and visual benefit of the town centre, and assisting in meeting the housing requirements of the wider Borough.”

This development is clearly a good thing for this part of South Harrow. The site is at the edge of the Northolt Road shopping area, and will be a welcomed improvement from the heavy sounds of bass music pumped out from the fleet of performance Japanese sports car which had clustered there during the carwash phase.

The planning application is now with Harrow Council and will be going through the normal planning approval process. You can use the Planning Application Search and use the application number P/2400/11 to view the full application.
