Second Market Exhibition Now On at Old Library

Developers Orion show details of emerging master plan

The Old Shepherd's Bush Library on Uxbridge Road is hosting an exhibition by Orion Shepherds Bush Limited, the developer planning to regenerate Shepherd's Bush Market.

The exhibition is open to the community  on:
Thursday 17th February: 1pm-7pm
Friday 18th February: 1pm-7pm
Saturday 19th February: 11am-4pm

Orion Shepherd's Bush Limited, or OSBL, says this is the second exhibition of its emerging master plan to regenerate the market.

The exhibition is the second stage of a seven month consultation that started in November. OSBL says it intends to lodge a planning application to Hammersmith and Fulham Council in the early summer.

Proposals shown at the exhibition will reflect all consultation to date. This includes the first exhibition held last November, individual and group meetings, and planning workshops held with traders and local residents.

The exhibition will feature designs and images of the proposed ground floor plan of the regenerated market and a large physical model of the scheme showing the ‘five areas of regeneration'.

Attendees will be able to provide feedback on specific options for the design of homes within the market area, and speak to members of the OSBL team and project architects from Robin Partington Associates and Portland Design.

OSBL Chairman Richard Olsen says:"This exhibition will set out the provisional designs as at February 2011. We will use the feedback we receive from local people to further refine these plans and bring them back at the next consultation in April 2011.

" We continue to develop our master plan in the public eye with a 'design/consult/design' approach. In this way, people are given the opportunity to shape proposals at each stage of design development.

"We hope to build consensus and find a good balance between the stakeholder interests that achieves the right outcome for Shepherd's Bush."

The exhibition will also show off work produced by local young people through the recent My Future Market project, which was a collaboration between OSBL, the Bush Theatre and Open City, founders and organisers of the popular annual Open House events.
