The final piece of the puzzle – Nine Elms scheme gets planning green light
Following the recent news that the Battersea Power Station and the Vauxhall Cross schemes have been granted to planning permission, Wandsworth Council granted planning permission for Tideway Industrial Estate to undergo a huge regeneration scheme.
CN Plus report that the plans for Tideway Industrial Estate include building 752 homes in the area, as well as a new hotel, shops, offices and restaurants.
This scheme represents the third piece of the puzzle for the huge Nine Elms scheme in London, which seeks to build 25,000 new homes, a new US embassy and redevelop the New Covent Garden market. Last week, communities secretary Eric Pickles gave his seal of approval for the Battersea Power Station site to be redeveloped, and the Vauxhall Cross scheme was also granted planning permission.
Work is expected to begin later this year, with the entire Nine Elms project expected to create around 15,000 construction jobs for contractors in the capital.
Wandsworth planning committee chairman Nick Cuff said in a statement:
“This scheme will transform a semi-derelict industrial estate, creating acres of new public space and hundreds of new homes. With more major schemes on the horizon momentum is really starting to build in Nine Elms.”
