Residents invited to Nine Elms meetings

Nine Elms meetings

Wandsworth council is hosting two meetings for residents interested in plans for the regeneration of the Nine Elms district of Battersea.

The first takes place on Tuesday 27 July at the Rose Community Clubroom, Ascalon Street. The second is on the following day at All Saints Church. Both meetings run from 7.30pm to 9pm.

Nine Elms is central London’s biggest regeneration opportunity. The area covers more than 450 acres of land along the south bank of The Thames – the vast majority of which is gearing up for major redevelopment. The combined proposals for the area could create up to 16,000 new homes and around 25,000 new jobs.

These meetings will give residents the chance to hear from and ask questions of leading councillors and planning officers about how Nine Elms could change.

Topics up for discussion include the vision and planning policies for the area, the employment and business opportunities likely to be created as well as new parks and community facilities. The development plans for major Nine Elms sites including the American Embassy and Battersea Power Station will be on display.

The council and developers of sites including Battersea Power Station will be showing off plans for Nine Elms at the Battersea Studios, Silverthorne Road, over the Summer. More information and viewing dates will be released shortly. If you would like to register your interest in viewing the exhibits, which include an impressive model of the development area, please click here.
