King Street Developments (KSD), a joint venture between Helical Bar Plc and Grainger Plc, plans to remove the 1960s extension in front of the listed town hall building and replace it with a public square featuring cafes, restaurants, 320 homes, a new council office building, community sized supermarket and a step-free footbridge across the A4 linking Hammersmith town centre to the river Thames.

David Walters, from King Street Developments said: "The regeneration of the west end of King Street will not only provide new shops, restaurants, homes, council facilities, and a safe, fully accessible route across the A4, at no cost to the taxpayer, but it will also ensure that Hammersmith Town Hall remains at the heart of the borough’s civic life.

"We are aware that there are people who have concerns about certain aspects of the plans, but we believe that this is the only way of unlocking this site to deliver a scheme which can benefit local residents and business for decades to come, securing the future of King Street."

The local authority will now hold a consultation exercise on the planning application before it is considered by the council’s planning committee in 2011.
