Hammersmith & Fulham History
The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham area started to develop during the mid 19th century with the arrival of the railways. Both Osram Lamps and Lyons food manufacturers were located here. It became the borough we now know as Hammersmith and Fulham, in 1965 when the metropolitan boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham were amalgamated. The area is currently undergoing several important developments, such as the renovation of the iconic BBC Television centre in White City.

Hammersmith & Fulham News
Planning permission was finally granted for a new mixed use development in King Street in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. A planning application was initially submitted to the local planning authority for the 1.44 hectare project in 2008. In 2011 planning permission was granted then withdrawn again in December of that year.
The joint venture between developers Helical Bar and Grainger made “significant changes” to the planning application. Permission was finally granted in April 2014 and demolition began on the site in 2016. In its place cafes, restaurants, retail units and flats will border an attractive town square and clock tower.
A new 250 seat Curzon cinema is to be built on both ground and first floor levels of the remodelled Town Hall extension. Consisting of 3 auditoria, there will be space on the ground floor for cinema goers to buy tickets and refreshments prior to screenings. A total of 196 new build apartments are also in the pipeline with some allocated as shared ownership.
Whilst the total cost of the regeneration project is expected to be around £150m it is expected to create approximately 1000 new jobs. Savings in the region of £150 000 will also be made from reduced energy costs and through the council retaining the freehold.
