Redevelopment Plans

What the New Covent Garden Website says…

“The redevelopment releases 20 acres of surplus land which will be transformed into a high quality residential neighbourhood comprising approximately 3,000 new homes, 135,000 sq ft of new office space and 100,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and new community facilities, including shops, cafes and restaurants. This will be part of the transformation of the wider Nine Elms on the South Bank area.”

The entire scheme will be set alongside a new linear park for the area along the river and stretching from Vauxhall to Battersea Power Station via the new American and Netherlands Embassies. The extension of the Northern Line and the opening of two new tube stations will mean the majority of people living and working in the area will be within five minutes’ walk of a tube station.

Subject to receipt of planning, development work on the new market will commence in 2015.

The truth and What this means for residents…

What they should be saying is ” we are going to be causing a major disruption to your everyday lives . If you think the traffic is bad in the day then prepare yourself for utter chaos. Roads will be dug up . More traffic lights will go up.” Not only that they have stated that 3000 luxury homes will be put up . Not one mention of making any of these homes affordable for any body else .
