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 details of the proposals, our consultation documents and further information on Watkin Jones Group and the wider project team.

February 2024 – An update on amendments to the planning application for 41-59 Battersea Park Road

As you may be aware, a planning application was submitted to Wandsworth Council in April 2022 for a mixed-use redevelopment of Bookers Wholesale & the former BMW showroom on Battersea Park Road.

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.

Following feedback from the Council’s statutory consultation, Watkin Jones Group have made amendments to the scheme, responding to queries and concerns about elements of the submitted plans. These revisions include:

  • A reduction in height and re-orientation of the elements of the development closest to Viridian Apartments, minimising risks of overlooking.
  • The retention of trees and greenery along Battersea Park Road and on the corner of Sleaford Street and Battersea Park Road, reducing the footprint of the development.
  • A higher percentage of Social Housing compared to intermediate housing.
  • A new community hub
  • Improvements to the proposed amenities for student accommodation

For more information on the proposals and the history of the site you can visit our website please visit the ‘The Site‘ and ‘Our Proposals‘ tabs of the this website.

The amendments to the planning application will be published on this website once the application is validated by Wandsworth Council. We will be touch again to notify you of this.
