Shepherd’s Bush Police Station in Uxbridge Road is set to be demolished and the site redeveloped to create buildings up to five storeys in height containing 54 flats and commercial space on the ground floor.

An application for full planning permission submitted on behalf of developers Telereal Trillium, who bought the site last September, can be viewed on H&F Council’s website using Ref. No: 2022/01953/FUL.

The application, which is open for comments, is for:

Demolition of the existing building and construction of a part 1, part 4, part 5 storey building comprising 54 self-contained flats (Class C3) and 275sqm of flexible non-residential uses (Classes E, F.1 and F.2) at ground floor; associated roof top plant and enclosure; private and communal amenity space, landscaping, refuse storage, cycle and car parking.

The application states that the new flats, at 252 Uxbridge Road on the corner of Tunis Road, may include some affordable housing but this level has yet to be decided.

Telereal Trillium bought the former police station for £5.5 million after it was put up for sale by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, MOPAC last summer. The company had also purchased Tooting Police in March last year for £8.25 million.

Announcing the sale, the company’s Development Director Duncan Brisbane, said: “ This is another important addition to our portfolio which we believe is a fantastic opportunity to regenerate and revive a high street site so that it may continue to make a valuable contribution to life in Shepherd’s Bush.”

The ground floor commercial space is already available to let, with estate agent Savills indicating that it could be used for either commercial or community use, possibly by a GP practice, dentist, pharmacy or day nursery.

The property details say the space consists of two separate blocks set around a landscaped courtyard, with interest welcomed for either part of the space of all of it.

This station was one of six in West London sold by Boris Johnson when he was London Mayor, along with the station in Fulham. This means our borough now has only one fully operational police station, in Shepherd’s Bush Road in Hammersmith.
