Agar Grove Estate was constructed by the London Borough of Camden in 1966. The existing buildings are in poor condition and public space underused.

Regeneration

In December 2013 Camden Council gave the go ahead for redevelopment of the Agar Grove estate and in April 2014 the planning application was approved.

The 500-home scheme will see 112 of the existing low-rise houses demolished, 360 new homes built, and the central, 18-storey Lulworth House tower block stripped back to its frame and retrofitted to provide new apartments.

The 25,600m² estate regeneration will include family terrace housing, maisonettes with gardens, and flats with gardens.

Part of Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme, the homes are being built to Passivhaus standards and will be built using a fabric first approach to energy performance.
