Orion Shepherds Bush is currently finalising detailed plans for the regeneration of Shepherds Bush Market.
With outline planning consent for the regeneration of the Market granted by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham in March 2012, the scheme secures a vibrant future for the Market, which celebrates its 100th anniversary next year.
The regeneration of the Market represents a £150m investment into Shepherd’s Bush. The scheme will bring a wide range of benefits to the local area, creating new homes, new opportunities for start-up businesses as well as rejuvenating Shepherds Bush Market.
The regeneration will make the most of the Market’s size and diversity, providing space for visitors to meet friends in a comfortable, modern environment. The scheme will see new stallholders and businesses join existing traders and enable the Market to host a range of events designed to encourage a whole new generation of shoppers to the Market.

UPDATE: CPO Granted on Orion’s Shepherds Bush Market Development:
On Friday 10th October 2014 the Department for Communities and Local Government and Secretary of State issued a statement which confirmed the Compulsory Purchase Order related to Orion’s Shepherds Bush Market Development had been granted. In response to the decision, Planning Minister Brandon Lewis said:
“Shepherd’s Bush Market has been part of west London’s street life for almost 100 years – we want to ensure this landmark feature survives for 100 more.”
“It has the potential to bring substantial economic, retail and social benefits to the area with a regeneration scheme safeguarding the distinctive identity of this iconic market.”
“This market is held in great affection by the local community. Regeneration will enable it to continue to provide a diverse range of stalls to meet their needs as well as improving the appeal for new visitors and shoppers alike.”
The regeneration project will not only bring more than 200 new homes to the area, but also aims to rejuvenate the existing market and incorporate its long standing history into the development.
In response to the decision Richard Olsen, Orion’s Chairman, stated “We are extremely pleased with the decision, which paves the way for the modernisation of the Market. This will ensure it remains a vibrant centre for the area which local people can be proud of.
We’ve been delighted with the interest in the project and are now looking forward to getting started. We will continue to work closely with businesses, traders and the local community to ensure that the revitalisation of the Market respects its unique traditions and roots.”
Shepherds Bush Temporary Market Area (TMA) nearing completion.
Located on the old laundry site neighbouring Pennard road, a new and exciting Temporary Market Area (TMA) has been developed by OSBL to accommodate all existing traders whilst the Market Lane refurbishments take place.
The purpose of the TMA is to ensure that all those existing traders affected by the refurbishment plans for Market Lane are provided with an adequate trading space to move into whilst the works are being completed.
The TMA will accommodate roughly 60 different existing market traders in brand new, fully refurbished and equipped shipping containers ranging from 10ft to 60ft in length. Each container has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the existing traders and provides them with a trading space in similar volume to their current shop/ stall.
On top of this, an additional 23 ‘Pop up’ areas have been incorporated which will bring a mixture of food traders, florists, coffee stalls etc.
The TMA will be heavily branded and easily accessible for both new and existing customers. Totems will be put in place to inform customers of trader locations and day time events will be established to help create a vibrant and buzzing market area.
The TMA is expected to be complete and occupied by existing traders within the next few weeks.
