Hello!

Welcome

Thank you for visiting Watkin Jones Group’s consultation website for their exciting residential-led, mixed use proposals for the re-development of 41-59 Battersea Park Road in Nine Elms.

The information available here includes the consultation document shared with residents at our pre-planning consultation in early 2022 and, as of 30th November 2022,  you can now also find the information from our Resident Update event on this website too.

You can also find further information Watkin Jones Group, the wider project team, and our proposals here too.

Resident Update Event – 30th November 2022

Following our pre-planning community consultation earlier this year Watkin Jones Group submitted a planning application to Wandsworth Council for the mixed-use redevelopment of Bookers Wholesale and the former BMW showroom – which has since been demolished – on Battersea Park Road. However, during the Council’s statutory consultation this summer residents raised a number of concerns about our submitted plans.

We invited local residents to meet us at a Resident Update event on Wednesday 30th November where the project team set out how our scheme had changed in direct response to the community’s comments.

The Resident Update event ran from 4pm until 8pm on Wednesday 30th November at the R.O.S.E. Community Clubroom at 22 Ascalon Street, London SW8 4AN.

Once we have reviewed residents’ feedback, our aim is to then formally submit these scheme adjustments to our current planning application. This will then trigger the Council to hold it own separate re-consultation where you will be given another opportunity to have your say on the future of this site.

Planning Application Submitted

Following our pre-planning community consultation in early 2022, Watkin Jones Group has now submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Wandsworth.

The application’s reference number is 2022/1835 and you can find the proposal’s documentation on the Council’s Planning Portal by clicking here, and then searching for the reference number.

When the plans were submitted to the Council in May, we kept local residents updated on these plans by delivering a newsletter to every home in the site’s closet residential development – Viridian Apartments. You can find a copy of the newsletter on this website too.

Although Wandsworth Council is now conducting its own consultation – and comments on our plans should be passed directly to the Council – should you wish to contact the project team at any time you can find our full contact details on this website.
