Outline plans for two major sites in the Vauxhall, Nine Elms, and Battersea Opportunity Area have been unveiled.
Sainsbury’s and Royal Mail Group each disclosed outline plans for sites that will form part of the largest regeneration project in central London.
The supermarket chain has revealed early designs for the redevelopment of their existing supermarket on Wandsworth Road, in Lambeth.
The proposal includes a reconfigured supermarket with a residential development above and an underground car park. The plan also includes a new hotel and could bring the site’s railways arches into public use as new shops.
Sainsbury’s expect to submit a full planning application for the site to Lambeth Council early next year.
Royal Mail Group has revealed outline plans for a residential development on their 13-acre site on Nine Elms Lane. The scheme would include space for new shops, community facilities as well as postal services.
A website has been set up where residents can view the proposals and offer feedback. The consultation will remain open until the end of November.
The Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea Opportunity Area covers 227 hectares of land on the south bank of the Thames. The GLA’s planning framework for the area sets out plans for up to 16,000 new homes and 25,000 new jobs.
Earlier this month Wandsworth Council approved plans for the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station which is located in the western corner of the opportunity area. The scheme includes a pledge of more than £200m towards an extension of the Northern Line which would connect the site with the underground network.
