Introduction to Dalston Western Curve


The two sites of the proposed Dalston Western Curve regeneration scheme are located on either side of Kingsland High Street, known as the northern and southern sites, in the heart of Dalston town centre.

The sites are located on a busy shopping parade and are approx. 0.4 hectares in size (combined). Transport for London demolished the original buildings on the sites to facilitate the construction of the East London Line.

As part of the transport infrastructure works, Transport for London and London Borough of Hackney agreed to fund the construction of a large slab above the railway cutting to enable the comprehensive redevelopment of the sites at a later date.

Transport for London and Taylor Wimpey submitted a planning application for the scheme in November 2012 following a 12-month period of pre-application consultation with the council and local stakeholders.

However in January 2013, Taylor Wimpey and Transport for London withdrew the application to address a number of design issues which were raised following its submission.

Through close consultation with planning officers at London Borough of Hackney, Taylor Wimpey and Transport for London addressed the design issues and is submitting a new planning application to the planning authority.

This website summarises the improvements to the scheme.
