Watkin Jones’ propose to deliver new affordable homes at a key location on the site. The focus is homes at social rent, which is an identified local need.
We also recognise that new universities are moving into the area, including the Royal College of Art’s new campus at Hester Road. The new Northern Line extension also means the locality is accessible to a range of universities in central London.
That is why we believe that new student homes here (including affordable provision) meets and increasing local need and which, in turn, helps keep family homes accessible to local people – potentially releasing some student housing stock, and limiting the number of existing properties that may become student Houses of Multiple Occupation in the future.
We are also mindful of our neighbours, especially those living in Viridian Apartments. That is why we have chosen to set our scheme back from the boundary line of our site, creating a greater distance between existing and proposed residential buildings.Disclaimer
We have created an automatic ranking system for new-build homes in London based on several critical features around the development, like schools, parks, and transport infrastructure.
We have developed this new analytical tool to calculate the scores based on the location data. Note that AutoScore values are not set by us or anyone else – everything happens automatically.
This website provides access to various informational resources, including the consultation document shared with residents during the pre-planning consultation in early 2022. Additionally, effective from November 30, 2022, you can access details from our Resident Update event on this site. We also offer comprehensive information about the Watkin Jones Group, the broader project team, and our development proposals.
As part of our ongoing efforts to address residents' concerns, following the pre-planning consultation, we submitted a planning application for the mixed-use redevelopment of Bookers Wholesale and the former BMW showroom on Battersea Park Road. During the Council's statutory consultation, residents raised specific issues about our submitted plans. To engage with the community and reflect their feedback, we organized a Resident Update event on November 30, during which our project team explained the modifications made to our scheme. After evaluating residents' input, our plan is to formally incorporate these adjustments into our existing planning application. Subsequently, the Council will conduct a separate re-consultation, providing you with another opportunity to express your views on the site's future.
