Salisbury Square Development
The City of London Corporation has identified a unique opportunity to create modern facilities for both the City of London Police and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) in the heart of the historic Square Mile.
We are currently consulting on the draft proposals and would like to hear your feedback on our plans before finalising the scheme and submitting a planning application later this year. You can view our plans on ‘The Proposals‘ page and submit your feedback on the ‘Feedback and Next Steps’ page.
The Salisbury Square Development in EC4, was previously known as the Fleet Street Estate project. Whilst the name has changed, our plans remain to deliver a new, purpose-built 18-courtroom legal facility called the City of London Law Courts and an industry leading City of London police headquarters equipped to combat amongst other things, fraud and economic crime across the UK.
Built to the highest industry standards when it comes to accessibility and sustainability, the Salisbury Square development will be a significant addition to the already world-leading legal capabilities of the UK. In addition, the scheme will:
Be a civic hub for justice, policing and commercial activity, supporting 2,100 jobs directly;
Generate around £51 million per year once complete and operational;
Generate c.£10 million in productivity benefits (GVA) per year during construction;
400 new jobs
Create around 400 brand new jobs in the City of London and an estimated 280 more through the supply chain and related economic activity;
Generate in excess of £5.4 million per annum in business rates receipts for the public purse of which approximately £1.6 million could be retained by the City Corporation for investment in local spaces and services;
150 direct construction jobs
Create 150 direct construction jobs through the life of the build and a further 80 jobs through the supply chain;
Key role in the future of Fleet Street
Play a key role in the future of Fleet Street as a thriving part of the historic Square Mile, especially as part of the to be formed Fleet Street Business Improvement District;
Enhanced and enlarged
An enhanced and enlarged Salisbury Square and creation of new pedestrian routes through the site, providing high quality hard and soft landscaping.
