Plans Submitted for Redevelopment of Kodak Site in Harrow

Land Securities has lodged its plans for a major mixed-use redevelopment of around 30 acres of the giant Kodak site in Harrow, Middlesex.

The developer has lodged outline plans to build a mix of 985 homes along with industrial units, shops, community facilities and cafes as part of a 10-year development of the site at Harrow View.

The 60-acre site has been home to Kodak for more than 120 years and is currently used for the production of photographic paper. Kodak is carrying out a phased consolidation onto a smaller site freeing up land for development in partnership with LandSecs.

The first two phases to be developed would be a 10-acre site that has already been cleared in the south-eastern corner and the 20 adjacent acres occupied by a vacant sports centre, car park and playing fields.

A health centre, a community centre, a care home, offices, a parade of shops and a supermarket along with student housing and a leisure facility will be developed on the 10-acre site.

The remainder, largely occupied by the existing Kodak factory, could be developed in the future if the land becomes available.

It is envisaged that the well-known chimney of the Kodak factory and the turbine room from which it rises, will be kept and converted into a cafe.

A tree-lined pedestrianised walkway connecting Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre and Headstone Manor Recreation Ground to Headstone Drive, known as the Green Link, will run through the middle of the site.

LandSecs and Kodak agreed a joint venture to redevelop Kodak’s Harrow site in 2008.

The parties formalised a partnering arrangement to work together to optimise use of redundant areas of Kodak’s production plant in Harrow and Wealdstone.
