Please note that the outline planning application for Murphy’s Yard has now been withdrawn. This has been done to allow for further consultation and revisions to the plans in response to the feedback received.

Statement from Folgate Estates

Having reviewed all consultee responses in great detail, Folgate Estates feels the best way to address concerns raised is to withdraw our planning application. This will allow us to undertake further consultation and make revisions to our plans.

We remain committed to redeveloping Murphy’s Yard, bringing the whole site back into active use and opening it up to the public for the first time.

We remain firm in our belief that Murphy’s Yard represents the best opportunity and location to help address the pressing needs of the Kentish Town, Gospel Oak and wider communities in terms of affordable housing and new homes, workspace and employment opportunities, new community spaces, local health facilities and important infrastructure links.

We are part of a family company that has a 60-year history of stewardship of this site and have the local connections, knowledge and commitment to reimagine this place in the interests of the community. We will continue to work with other landowners and stakeholders, officers and councillors.

We would like to thank everyone who has taken an interest in our proposals during the past three years of public consultation and especially those who declared their support for our regeneration of Murphy’s Yard. We know you all want to maximise public benefits through regeneration and will consider the full range of feedback as we review the masterplan.
