The Mount Pleasant Royal Mail site was sold for £193 million to Taylor Wimpey, bringing to an end the association’s hopes for a community-led project for the site.
The Mount Pleasant Association is a community-led housing group working to obtain a Community Right To Build for the former Royal Mail site in central London. The Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood Area and Forum was designated on the 4th February 2016. The site is planning to have 125 residential units, on 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom flats, 1,200sqm of commercial space, a communal space together with roof terraces and a pocket park. Because a Community Right to Build Order is valid only on developments of 150 residential units or less, the community-led proposal is only on a portion of the larger site.
