Case Study

Covent Garden Market Authority

​​Playing a key role in the redevelopment of Nine Elms to deliver a modern new market and residential scheme​.Covent Garden Market Authority

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.​​
