We are playing a pivotal role as planning consultants in a major regeneration project in East London that will transform 19ha of undeveloped land in Silvertown to create a new riverside community of 5,000 new homes and 20,000 sqm of workspace, designed around a new DLR station, to be delivered by TfL in 2023.
Following circa 18 months of extensive pre-application consultation, a hybrid planning application (part full and part outline) was submitted to the London Borough of Newham on behalf of the joint applicants, property developer Silvertown Homes Limited and the Greater London Authority.
Included in the proposals on land at the former Carlsberg factory are 5,000 mixed-tenure residential units, 20,000 sqm of flexible employment space, a new primary school and community hub, two new public parks and over 800m of new riverside walk along the River Thames.
As well as providing Planning, Landscape Planning, Development Economics and Environmental Planning services, we are working alongside a number of other partners on this landmark project, including Foster & Partners (the masterplanners), John McAslan & Partners (phase 1 architect), Patel Taylor (landscape masterplanners) and Buro Happold (engineers).
Planning Associate Sinead Morrisey said: “The regeneration of Thameside West in Newham presents the area with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to breathe new life in to this once vibrant part of East London. With a significant amount of investment from the public and private sector, a thriving new community can be created in this unique riverside setting.”
Max James, Chief Executive of Keystone, said: “As one of the last major river front locations in London, the site offers a valuable opportunity to create a new community on the Thames with a genuinely sustainable mix of homes and workplaces aimed at a wide range of people living and working in this exciting part of London.”
