Temple project success: Middlesex Hospital Annex

02.12.2022 2 min read

Temple is delighted to win our Client’s Planning Appeal at The Middlesex Hospital Annex, Cleveland Street, W1 (known as Bedford Passage). This is in the face of a worsening market position and will enable the continued delivery of this 2020 RTPI award winning mixed use scheme. This follows previous approvals, a scheme that is on-site and has been part of a 7-year process (so far).

Temple led the original application for the UCLH Charity ahead of the Planning Hearing in October, then led the planning strategy and coordination throughout the Appeal Process.

Temple was part of a great, dedicated and collaborative team including Pinsent Masons (Solicitors), Rebecca Clutten (FTB Chambers), Llewelyn Davies (Architects), SQW (Financial Viability), Urban Counsel (Heritage), and ARUP (Energy).

The Appeal Decision for Middlesex Hospital was issued on 1st December with the Inspector’s commentary largely following the team’s collective evidence. The Inspector concluded that the provision of housing (including affordable housing) in light of the Council’s increased housing shortfall, the economic benefits of the provision of flexible commercial space, the social benefits of the delivery of medical facilities, the design quality of the scheme together with the social value benefit of the archaeological works on the site, outweigh any the adverse impacts (appeal reference APP/X5210/W/22/3300894)
