"Plans to regenerate the world famous former BBC Television Centre in White City - preserving the Grade II listed central ring, the famous Studio 1 and other historic features at their heart - have been approved.
"Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F) Council’s Planning Application Committee gave the green light last night (Dec 19) to Stanhope, the new owner of the five-hectare site on Wood Lane, to build more than 1,000 homes, a hotel and new shops.
"The plans - which bring £10 million in community improvements and could create around 2,745 jobs according to the developers - will enable the centre to remain at the heart of the community where it has stood for the past 53 years.
"The scheme involves replacing four television studios, the restaurant and drama blocks, the east tower and connected buildings with up to 1,025 homes, a hotel, cinema, health and leisure club, restaurants, cafes and offices."
