Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point
Re-development of Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point
A second project newsletter was distributed in September which included feedback from the first round of consultation and details of how to give feedback on the updated plans.
Two online consultation exhibitions took place on Thursday 16 September. There were also two separate online meetings for residents from Pellant Road, Chaldon Road and Williams Close.

We held an in-person, drop-in event on Saturday 18 September at Sir John Lillie Primary School.
There will be further opportunities to see and comment on the proposals before they are submitted to Planning in December 2021.
We have recently posted our first project newsletter to neighbours of the Hartopp and Lannoy site. This newsletter provides some further background to the project, sets out our timeline towards submitting a planning application and beyond, and invites local residents to get involved and attend our upcoming community engagement events.
Our first online exhibitions via Zoom were held on Thursday 10 June. At the sessions participants were able to see the emerging proposals for the site and ask the project team questions.

Demolition - May 2021
The demolition of Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point is now complete and the site has been prepared for redevelopment.
The council have recently appointed an architect and project team to explore and work up proposals for new housing and open space on the site, leading up to submission of a planning application later this year.
The proposed development of the site is part of our wider effort to build 1,500 new genuinely affordable homes in the borough.
This is a key element in our pioneering Industrial Strategy, and we are determined to deliver as many genuinely affordable homes as possible in the next 10 years as we strive to make Hammersmith & Fulham the best place to live, work and socialise in Europe.
There is a need for affordable housing across the borough and we are determined to ensure the development of the site will:
- Support high-quality new housing within the Aintree Estate;
- Provide affordable housing (a minimum of 50% on the site);
- Be self-financing to protect the council’s already strained budget;
- Support thriving neighbourhoods and provide high-quality spaces; and
- Create an environmentally sustainable development.
Having adopted our Defend Council Homes policy last January, we want to communicate and consult with council housing residents (tenants and leaseholders) whose home may be affected by any development proposal. We are therefore in the process of setting up a Residents Steering Group so that residents of Aintree Estate can work with the Council and our project team on the designs to ensure that what is being built meets the needs of the local community.
As well as the Residents Steering Group we will also be holding regular public exhibitions and communicating with residents through newsletters and an interactive website to gather people’s views on the proposed designs and keep everyone up to date with how the scheme is progressing.
Our colleagues at community development organisation Newman Francis will be helping us with this project. They have significant experience working with residents and are keen to make sure you have an opportunity to get involved and have your voice heard.
