The "Lost River Park" runs through the 31ha Earls Court masterplan revealed by developers Capital and Counties Properties, following the line of one of London’s lost rivers, Counters Creek.
The green space, with 450 trees and 20,000 plants and shrubs would link up the developers’ planned 7,500 new homes, offices, shops, leisure facilities, hotel, primary school and library, Replacing Earls Court Exhibition Centre and the Gibbs Green and West Kensington estates. Two crescents and garden squares are also planned.
Capital and Counties Properties has gained planning permission for the Earls Court Masterplan after it signed a Section 106 agreement with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London Underground and Transport for London.
The first detailed planning application is expected to be submitted by the end of this year.
