More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Old Tram Depot, Clapton - new re-development planning application

A new planning application to re-develop the
Old Tram Depot 
(aka the Tram Sheds)
38-40 Upper Clapton Road
was registered 8 December 2010
and is now on the council website

application ref. 2010/2879

I believe this is the fourth application in as many years.
All the previous have been withdrawn, refused or deemed "unimplimentable"
having been opposed by depot residents, a very large number of local residents, local councillors and organizations like the Hackney Society.

I will post more details about the design and proposed mix of commercial and residential
over the next few days so do check back.

In the meantime, you can check for yourself at the above link and leave a comment for the planning dept. to concider.

The deadline for comments is 31st Jan 2011


The Clapton Arts Trust is still hoping to
obtain the depot and is currently
working towards that goal
more to come
