Hornsey Police Station secures planning permission

August 22, 2023

We are thrilled to announce that Hornsey Police Station in Tottenham Lane, London, has now received planning permission from Haringey Council’s planning committee.

Koukan Developments’ proposals will see the police station refurbished and extended to provide six terraced houses and four flats. A new four-storey block to the north will also be built and provide four houses and seven flats, while a new three-storey block at the corner of Harold Road and Glebe Road to the west of the police station will provide eight flats available at London Affordable Rent levels.

Built in 1884 and closed in 2021, the police station was originally part of a complex of civic buildings that included a library and fire station. Our Sustainability team were appointed by Archanaeum to provide a number of technical services to support the planning application. We placed a strong focus on integrating the principles of sustainable design and construction into the design, putting an emphasis on passive design measures and efficient servicing solutions in-line with the London Borough of Haringey Development Management Development Plan Document. The flats will all be serviced by communal air source heat pumps with individual heat pumps providing space heating for the houses. PV panels will be installed on the flat roof, helping the site to generate some of its own energy.

Our team, led by Sunanda Swain completed the following requirements:

• Energy Assessment
• Sustainability Assessment
• Overheating Risk Assessment
• Embodied Carbon Analysis
• Circular Economy Statement
