Playing a key role in the redevelopment of Nine Elms to deliver a modern new market and residential scheme.
The London Planning Team was appointed to lead the planning case for the redevelopment of the wholesale market in Nine Elms, London to re-provide market facilities on a consolidated site and mixed residential-led uses on surplus land. Planning consultancy advice was given to support the procurement of a Development Partner through the OJEU tender process. The challenge consisted of formulating a scheme which would be capable of securing sufficient value from surplus land to fund the re-provision of New Covent Garden Market.
The team had to influence planning policy to support the redevelopment of the site which was formerly designated for employment for mixed uses. A resolution to grant outline planning permission was secured to deliver some 94,459 sqm of modern market facilities and a new food centre for London on the retained market site. The surplus sites will deliver approximately 2,500 residential units, including those within three towers of up to150m tall, and a supermarket within an emerging CAZ frontage, as well as a mix of shops, cafes, restaurants, community and business spaces.
The Planning Team had been integral in formulating the planning strategy for submission, supporting extensive public consultation over a number of years, preparing a robust Environment Statement, co-ordinating an extensive range of specialist consultants and preparing the formal application package.
The team secured outline planning permission following agreement from the London Borough of Wandsworth and the GLA for the use of an outline application for this complex redevelopment. A scheme was developed which will generate sufficient value for the site to be able to fund the redevelopment of a modern new market.
