Plans for the former Maria Fidelis School site

HS2 and Mace Dragados are bringing forward plans to create a temporary site office and welfare facility on the former Maria Fidelis school site, on North Gower Street and Starcross Street. A planning application for the site has been submitted to Camden Council. You can view the planning application on the London Borough of Camden Planning portal.

These plans include a Construction Skills Centre that will be operated by Camden Council.

Public engagement

In April 2021, we carried out public engagement on our proposals, and gathered feedback via an on-line form.

This engagement process provided:

  • Updates on the plans to create a temporary site office and welfare facility on the former Maria Fidelis school grounds;
  • Information on the Status of the Camden Council’s Construction Skills Centre; and
  • A chance for people to ask questions and feedback on the plans.

In response to the feedback received during the initial phase of public engagement, we have revised our plans and are proposing a refreshed design that takes into account the comments shared by local people. We held two further ‘focus group’ sessions in early June, to update on our progress and for local residents to ask questions on the new design ideas.
