New Canning Town centre plans are approved

The “rebirth” of Canning Town centre has moved a step closer - with residents told to expect more jobs and opportunities. Plans for the first phase of the area’s development, including affordable housing and a supermarket, were approved by the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation (LTGDC).

The new site will reconnect the areas north and south of the A13 flyover, Canning Town corner with Barking Road and Rathbone Market. It will include space for 179 private and affordable homes, 424 square metres of retail space, a Morrisons supermarket, an ‘energy centre’ and space for car parking.

Work on the scheme, developed by Bouygues Development and One Housing Group, will start towards the end of the year.

Clive Dutton, Newham Council’s executive director for regeneration and inward investment, said: “To be delivering a new, £600m town centre scheme in the current market is huge acheivement.

“The Bouygues Development scheme will spur on not only the wider Canning Town and Custom House regeneration scheme, it will also give momentum to the wealth of opportunities running from The Royals through to Stratford,

“It is further evidence that east London and Newham in particular are at the heart of London’s future economic growth.”

The entire £3.7bn Canning Town and Custom House regeneration scheme will include more than 1,000 housing units, 30,000 square metres of leisure and retail space, and community facilities.

Work is planned to be completed by 2023.

Peter Andrews, chief executive of the LTGDC, said: “The impact of this decision will be truly transformational.
“Canning Town’s regeneration did not happen when the DLR and Jubilee lines were put in place but this sustained effort by LGTDC and Newham Council will provide a truer platform for the area’s rebirth.

“Canning Town may well be the last example of substantial regeneration outside of the Olympic Park.”

It is progressing,

the ground works have been nearly completed and the basement "oil tank" galleries will open this summer while the main superstructure, which is the bit you are probably most interested in, will require additional funding to get started, slow but steady progress.

Nine Elms scheme approved



A planning application to create 456 new homes in the Nine Elms regeneration zone has been approved by Wandsworth Council. The new Marco Polo House development would also provide more than 1,200 square metres of commercial space for new shops, cafes, restaurants and offices.

The site is located on Queenstown Road to the east of Battersea Park and is currently occupied by an office building. A new pedestrian walkway would run through the development alongside a public garden, public courtyard and outdoor children's play areas.

Sixty-eight apartments will be made available to local first-time-buyer through a shared ownership scheme. A total of 607 cycle parking spaces will be provided on the site and 141 car parking bays. Three spaces will be set aside for car club vehicles.

As part of a Section 106 legal agreement the developer will pay more than £12million towards local infrastructure upgrades including two new Northern Line stations and an expansion of the Barclays Cycle Hire Scheme.

Other contributions secured by the council include £252,000 towards the Nine Elms Local Employment initiative, £2.5million for affordable housing programmes in other parts of the regeneration area and £92,500 towards improvements to Battersea Park.

Wandsworth Council's planning chairman Cllr Nick Cuff said: "This scheme would create hundreds of new homes and provide almost £12million towards improving local services and infrastructure. Nine Elms has begun to transform on an enormous scale. Building work is already underway on several major schemes and more planning applications will soon be coming forward.

"The Government's commitment to extending the Northern Line has reinforced investor confidence and it won't be too long before a new residential and business district has taken shape."

The redevelopment proposal was approved on Thursday 19 January by the council's planning applications committee. The Nine Elms and Vauxhall opportunity area includes 450 acres of land between Battersea Park and Lambeth Bridge on the south bank of the Thames.

The London Plan anticipates up to 16,000 new homes and 25,000 new jobs will be created here as the area is redeveloped. Work is now underway on major development schemes including St George's Vauxhall Tower scheme and St James Group's Riverlight development.

Enabling works are also underway on the site of the new US Embassy which is expected to open in Nine Elms in 2017. The area also includes Battersea Power Station which has planning permission for more than 4,000 new homes and a new town centre development.

Other major schemes include:

Parkside
Embassy Gardens
The Garden at New Covent Garden Market
One Nine Elms
Sainsbury's Nine Elms
Vauxhall Island
Vauxhall Square
Sky Gardens
Hampton House
30-60 South Lambeth Road
Black Prince Road

More redevelopment proposals have been unveiled recently including National Grid's plans for a mixed use scheme on the Battersea Gas Holders site.
