Public Exhibition, October 2018
The school has undertaken a series of meetings and workshops with some of those interested in the development of the disused Hampstead Police Station site. Building on their feedback and our revised thinking, the school developed some new draft plans which it shared with the community for their comment at a public exhibition over 3 days in early October.
Hundreds of local people attended the open exhibition, giving their thoughts and feedback on the draft plans. Many visitors had seen the original planning application in 2017 and said they were pleased the new plans met many of the complaints raised in responses to the rejected 2017 application.
“The school, and the government, passionately wants to work with local people to ensure together we create a space that benefits local children and serves the community's needs.”
We are keen to bring outstanding educational opportunities closer to the area it serves, to offer new facilities for the community and to breathe fresh life into the disused Police Station on Rosslyn Hill.
