Could a mod update the title of this thread to 35 floors and change 'public inquiry' to 'pre-planning'?

Revised plans to regenerate Wandsworth town centre's historic Ram Brewery have been unveiled.

New proposals include replacing the disused brewery complex with 669 new homes, a 35-storey residential tower and more than 100,000 sq ft of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The new planning application, submitted to Wandsworth Council on November 9 by developer Minerva.

The original application, granted planning permission in December 2008, included 1,000 apartments and 200,000 square feet of retail space in two towers.



But in February 2009 the application was referred to and rejected by a government appointed planning inspector.

The revised application includes just one tower and a homage to the site's history with a micro-brewery and brewing museum.

Minerva has also pledged to carry out work improving the water quality of The River Wandle, which runs through the heart of the development.

Tim Garnham, Minerva joint chief executive, said: "These proposals will breathe new life into the historic Ram Brewery site and Wandsworth town centre.

"The scheme will provide a new shopping experience for local people as well as new jobs and new homes."

The developers hope the regeneration will create more than 500 jobs and hundreds more to construct the site.

A recent survey found more than three-quarters of residents supported the proposals but there have already been objections from some.

Andrew Whiteford, from Trefoil Road, Wandsworth, said: "The development should include at lease one parking space per residential unit and additional parking spaces for visitors to the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

"1200 cycle parking spaces will not help the local residents at all nor alleviate the already existing parking problem.

"A 35 storey residential tower is simply too high - one more blot on the Wandsworth skyline."

A public exhibition open from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at the site will be held on November 29.

To read the application visit www.wandsworth.gov.uk/ and enter 2012/5290 in the planning search box.

Exhibitions for new Ram Brewery proposal

Residents can find out more about a new proposal to redevelop the Ram Brewery site in Wandsworth at two public exhibitions.

Minerva Limited wants to redevelop the historic site in the centre of the town - creating 669 new homes and generating 500 new permanent jobs and 370 construction jobs.
The proposal would see 166 homes built within a 35-storey residential tower, as well as more than 9,500 square metres of space dedicated to new shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

In addition, Minerva is proposing to restore and refurbish historic buildings within the site and include a micro-brewery and a brewing museum as part of the completed scheme.
Under the proposal, the River Wandle would be opened up and landscaped to provide public access along a new riverside walk.

Public exhibitions are being held at the Ram Brewery site on Thursday, November 29, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm and on Saturday, December 1, from 9.30am to 12.30pm to give residents a chance to view the plans and talk to the development team.

The ongoing £1bn regeneration of Wandsworth Town shows no sign of slowing down. Last month, Debenhams announced a plan to establish a new store as part of a forthcoming £40m phase of redevelopment at Southside Shopping Centre.
That announcement came just days after Wandsworth Council gave the go-ahead for the long-vacant Lyon House office block in Wandsworth High Street to be redeveloped to create new homes and shops.

Councillor Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said: "As well as creating homes, business space and jobs, town centre developments also generate financial contributions towards the Wandsworth one-way system redesign project.
"We believe that switching part of the gyratory back to two-way working would relieve pressure on the high street and help it really flourish."
A summary of Wandsworth Town 's major investment sites includes the following:

Completed Schemes -
Ipsus01 (residential)
Barratt (residential)
South Thames College redevelopment
Wandsworth Town Library
Wandsworth Museum
Alma Hotel
Southside Shopping Centre Phase 1
Wandsworth Town Station upgrade and new entrance
Currently on site -

ENDS

Exhibition today (Dec 1st) at the Ram Brewery, Wandsworth Town:





A planning application has been submitted by Minerva Limited for the redevelopment of the Ram Brewery site in Wandsworth forming the centrepiece of Wandsworth town centre’s regeneration plans. The development will deliver 669 new homes to the borough, including 166 within a 35 storey landmark residential tower designed by EPR architects, as well as over 9500 sq m of space dedicated to new shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The proposed development will preserve many of the site’s historic buildings which will be restored and refurbished, and a micro-brewery and a brewing museum will also be part of the completed scheme. If approved, the development would generate 500 new permanent jobs and 370 construction jobs. The River Wandle will be opened up and landscaped to provide public access along a new riverside walk.

Ram Brewery plans go in
Posted on Nov 20, 2012 by editor
A new set of plans for the redevelopment of the Ram Brewery in Wandsworth have been submitted.

Minerva’s plans, for a 669-home development on the Wandsworth Town Centre site, have been designed by EPR architects, and include a 35-storey residential tower alongside other buildings up to 12 storeys, 9,500sqm of retail and restaurant space.

In addition, Minerva is proposing to restore and refurbish historic buildings within the site and include a micro-brewery and a brewing museum as part of the completed scheme.

Under the proposal, the River Wandle would be opened up and landscaped to provide public access along a new riverside walk.

A programme of public exhibitions of the plans are being held at the Ram Brewery site over the next couple of weeks. Minerva say the new scheme would generate 500 permanent jobs and 370 construction jobs.

The previous set of plans were refused by Communities Secretary Eric Pickles on the grounds the scale of the scheme would impinge on the character of the area. They included 829 homes in towers up to 42 storeys.

Montagu Evans are handling planning.

This scheme adds to the existing works going on around Wandsworth Town Centre, with Debenhams signing for a new store as part of a forthcoming £40m phase of redevelopment at Southside Shopping Centre, and recent planning approval for the conversion of the vacant Lyon House office block to homes and shops.

Councillor Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said: “As well as creating homes, business space and jobs, town centre developments also generate financial contributions towards the Wandsworth one-way system redesign project.

“We believe that switching part of the gyratory back to two-way working would relieve pressure on the high street and help it really flourish.”


Ps. Can a mod update the title of this thread from 'in a public inquiry' to 'in planning'?

The renders looks very good in many ways. Good use of brick with glass & steel, and the triangular tower echoes the gabled facades / pitched roofs. Throw the opened up canal and pedestrian zone into the mix, and this is better than you'd expect in this drab part of Wandsworth.

Yes, and if thet get planning then they aim to begin phase 1 construction this August. This will make a real positive difference to Wandsworth Town.

I'm about 10-15 min walk from here and this looks pretty good... Done right, Ram Brewery area becoming a sort of cross between the Truman Brewery, Exmouth Market and decent (affordable) residential offerings it would be marvellous. I've read that pdf you just linked, not the planning docs in detail, but on the surface this project does seem much closer to that sort of ideal than I've cynically come to expect!

There have been a lot more objection letters than support letters to the planners at Wandsworth council regarding this. If you want to write, sending your support, then you only have until 18th March.

Done! (although tongue in cheek - I don't even live there)

SUPPORT: "A huge improvement on the previous plan


The height is much more appropriate & the design very very upmarket. Will do tons of positive stuff for the area, which looks dirty and out of place. Even the East end looks better than this currently! Just think of all that extra income to keep the council tax low. This may help to keep the chavs away also!
